A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a blockchain (a digital ledger) which can represent a unique digital item like art. An NFT is a cryptographic token, but unlike cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and many network or utility tokens, NFTs are not mutually interchangeable, i.e. not fungible. (Wikipedia).
The following experts shared their take on NFT.
1) Journey Li, APAC Marketing Manager, Elliptic
2) Anndy Lian, Advisory Board Member, Hyundai DAC
3) Kelvin Goh, Head of Wealth Advisory, OCBC
4) Cao Yin, NFT Collector
"NFTs are not just for purely for collectables, right now at this current moment especially, I see a lot of these big purchases and big valuation. This is actually part of a process to let people know what NFT is." – Anndy Lian
While Anndy sees this as an awareness process right now, Cao Yin explains his point of view as a collector.
"The original reason for collecting these items (NFTs) is to collect, and not to transact, and not to "buy low, sell high" and profit from it."- Cao Yin
