Christoffer Nilsson on LinkedIn

A few of the most popular and top NFT platforms:
Open Sea:
Enjin Marketplace:

Short explanation for what NFT's are:
An NFT is a non-fungible token which means that it is a unique item that you cannot replace with something else. An example of an NFT is a one-of-a-kind trading card, such as a digital artwork, in this episode we talk about NBA sportscards as another example, that you simply cannot replace with any other artwork. Today, the majority of NFTs are digital which makes it very easy for creators to give their supporters something unique and rare. While they are similar to Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies, they are non-fungible and non-divisible.
