NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, are on everyone’s lips and always create a big buzz with sums of millions. Recently, even the word “NFT” was named word of the year by Collins Dictionary. Simply put, NFTs are unique, digital certificates used in a blockchain to represent ownership of an asset (borrowing from the Collins Dictionary definition).
One of the most sensational NFT projects was the work “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” by artist Beeple. Basically, it was an image in JPEG format, which consisted of 5000 small images. The auction was a real novelty, with 22 million observers in the last minutes, and eventually brought the artist a sale sum of 42,329.453 Ether (equivalent to about $69.3 million). The buyer initially remained anonymous, but eventually turned out to be Vignesh Sundaresan, who stands for a crypto-based fund that acquires NFTs.
