This is a bit of a different type of post that is more conceptual, maybe we will have more on the subject as I research more.
NFTs are a concept based in cryptocurrency, it stands for non-fungible token. Non-fungible means that basically each ‘token’ is unique, has an owner or creator that can be tracked. In the simplest (maybe over simplified) terms, making digital art into an NFT could be a way that artists keep their royalties, control how copies of their work are made, and things like that.
Imagine a future like this, maybe a friend shares you a meme. If this tech was being used, maybe the original creator of the meme would get some kind of reward or credit for their share. Very interesting idea.
Feel free to let me know in the comments if this concept / post is interesting to you all and if you’re interested in my further research on the subject!
