W... WTF is an NFT? Why? Who? When?
An NFT stands for Non Fungible token. As Wikipedia explains: "A non-fungible token (NFT) is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, a form of digital ledger. Types of NFT data units may be associated with digital files such as photos, videos, and audio."
NFTs exist for that reason. It gives artist the possibility to have a unique piece, and the blockchain proofs who this piece belongs to. A Picasso in a museum is viewable for all, but belongs to someone. A song or piece of coding are more difficult to show in that museum. And the NFT world is an amazing place to show digital art!
There is also a lot to do around crypto and the envirement. The basic of NFT is ETH (Ethereum). this is an expensive, slow and energyconsuming proces. That's why a lot of NFT Artist choose to work with POLYGON. Polygon is a layer 2 and uses a different way in the blockchain. the World Wildlife Fund UK once made the calculations that a single transaction on Polygon only produces 0,207 gr CO2 - a number they can live with. In ETH this number is a lot higher (very much higher). So of course we are fan of using the faster - cheaper and environmentally friendlier Polygon.
