What are NFTs?
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are simply digital assets or unique collectibles. The blockchain is there to verify, guarantee, as well as secure the rarity, authenticity, ownership, and other properties of NFTs. What makes NFTs different from other digital content is that they are not there to temporarily provide a service to users on a licensing basis. Instead, users can actually own them.
Because of that, the holders of NFTs can own them and no other party or the developer of the NFT has any influence over it. That means if you hold an NFT, you can do whatever you want with it. This includes trading the NFT for other items, selling it on a marketplace, or HODLing it.
