For the uninitiated, a non-fungible token or NFT is a digital currency in the form of a unique unit of data stored on digital ledgers called blockchains. It represents items that can be easily replicated, such as images, audio, video, and other electronic files. This means that NFTs can be sold and traded on the digital market, but unlike other currencies, they are not interchangeable.
