What is NFT?
NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token and it is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger. Basically, it is a digital asset which has no real-world presence but it does represent real-world objects. NFTs use blockchain technology to establish a verified and public proof of ownership.
How does one prove that he/she is the owner of the asset?
A person can prove that he or she is the owner of the asset quite easily. When a person buys NFT, a unique token is transferred to his or her wallet. This token proves that the copy of the digital file is original. Moroever, at a particular period of time, there can be only one owner of NFT. So, the unique data associated with the NFT helps in verifying and transfer of tokens.
