What are NFTs?
NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are a type of encrypted code assigned to a digital item to identify it as unique and give it value in the art market.
Tokenization consists of registering the data that identifies the artwork in a single unit, which comprises all the information about the piece: the artist’s name, the year in which it was created, its classification, estimated price, and anything else that identifies it and proves its authenticity.
