What Is An NFT?
NFT stands for Non Fungible Token. They are called "non-fungible" because they cannot be exchanged for other tokens or assets in a one-to-one manner like how a dollar bill can be exchanged for four quarters.
Simply put, NFTs are things that represent ownership of items or assets.
NFTs are often used for digital collectibles, artwork, and certification for physical assets. In our case (Pudgy Penguins), we’ve seen people buy them for a number of reasons:
