Understanding NFTs

Anyone would be excited to start profiting off NFTs. But before learning the ways of earning, you have to understand what NFT is.

NFT is an acronym that stands for Non-fungible token.

What do we mean by non-fungible? Fungibility entails that an asset can be exchanged for a similar one. Take currency money as an example. Currency money is said to be fungible because a denomination of $100 can be interchanged with two denominations of $50.

Also, there are a ton of notes of a certain denomination in a country. Let’s assume the denomination in question is $100. No matter where you go, as long as you see a $100 note, its value remains the same.
