How to Buy my First NFT on Rarible – A Complete Step-by-Step Guide

NFTs are Non-Fungible Tokens, word non-fungible means irreplaceable and unique. I’m relating unique with nonfungible, everything irreplaceable is unique. For instance, if you draw a sketch, it becomes a masterpiece and nobody can replace it, which comes with uniqueness as well as being non-fungible. And the word Token means proof of authority which means the sketch you draw belongs to you and you are the authorized owner of this sketch.

If someone wants to buy the NFT, first they have to exchange some currency with you and in return, they will receive a token of that NFT.
