NFT International Day is celebrated on September 20, a celebration that began five years ago. Back in 2017, the term ‘Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)’ was officially coined by Dete Shirley, Chief Technology Officer of DapperLabs. NFTs, created for a market size of $25 billion (approximately Rs 1,99,272) last year, are blockchain-based tokens that represent a digital asset or collection unique and supported on different blockchains. Ethereum, Solana, and Polygon are popular among NFT creators as blockchains of choice.
What makes NFT unique is their unrepeatable characteristic. They are the only cryptographic tokens that exist on a blockchain and cannot be copied by other users.
Tarusha Mittal, COO and co-founder of UniFarm, said in conversation with Gadgets 360. UniFarm said: is a multi-token rewards staking program.
“NFTs cannot be duplicated, which makes them perfect collectibles, and their rarity adds monetary value to each NFT. This digital collectibles serve as important interconnecting links between the physical world and the super-island. NFTs provide a unique way to tokenize real-world assets and sell them to a global audience in a virtual world entirely governed by secure governance tokens,” Mittal said.
In India, the NFT has yet to find its official identity and place in the financial and technology sectors. Currently, NFTs are classified as ‘virtual digital assets’.
Buying and selling NFTs is not expressly prohibited in India. Last year, Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchanand Salman Khan became the first mainstream celebrities to launch their own NFT collection in the country.
Meanwhile, Indian pacing Arshdeep Singh has teamed up with cricket-focused NFT platform Rario to launch his own NFT series on Tuesday. Previously, other sports such as Dinesh Kartik and Yuvraj Singh has also provided fans with access to their digital collections.
In an effort to strengthen the NFT portfolio in India, cryptocurrency exchange BuyUcoin has announced a strategic partnership with NFT cricket platform Jump.trade to enable users to sell, buy and mint NFTs with How to use the BuyUcoin NFT platform. These will include unique digital cricket collections such as autographed cricket bats.
