What are NFTs?

NFTs have been around for years where a lot of artistes have made serious money on digital artworks. They have recently gained a lot of hype. Investopedia defines NFTs as "Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain with unique identification codes and metadata that distinguish them from each other. Unlike cryptocurrencies, they cannot be traded or exchanged at equivalency."

"This differs from fungible tokens like cryptocurrencies, which are identical to each other and, therefore, can be used as a medium for commercial transactions."
