How to Sell NFT Photography – A Step-by-Step Guide

NFTs are Non-Fungible Tokens, word non-fungible means irreplaceable and unique. Why I’m relating unique with nonfungible, everything that is 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.

In short, NFTs are digital assets like images, videos, gifs, music, art, and everything on the internet that belongs to you like your Tweets. Jack Dorsey, one of the co-founders of Twitter, sold his first tweet as an NFT for more than $2.9 million. Each NFT has a unique value which is called a token and it gives you complete authority over your assets and certificate of ownership so in that way no one can claim your assets unless they don’t buy them.

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

How it Works: NFT was developed by using blockchain and it used a distributed ledger to store the record about each node. Moreover, it is completely decentralized.
