Frequently Asked Questions
What is an NFT?
NFT stands for non-fungible token. “Non-fungible” means it is completely unique and cannot be replaced with something else. For example, one dollar, or one bitcoin, is “fungible” – it can be traded for another dollar or bitcoin.
An NFT is designed to give you something that can’t be copied. It is a unique proof of ownership over something that is not physically tangible, for example a piece of digital art, a video clip, or a membership.
Like physical coins, NFTs are “minted” (created) using codes that is written and permanently published onto a blockchain, such as Ethereum.
What is the BF&A NFT?
