Who buys NFTs? Research has shown that the 23% of Millennials, those who were born between 1981 and 1996, are leading in collecting NFTs. Baby Boomers have the lowest turnout towards NFTs as only about 2% of them admitted purchasing NFTs. On the other hand, Gen Xers and Gen Zers have 8% and 4% respectively.
Can paintings be sold as NFTs? Yes. Any kind of digital file can be stored as an NFT. Most marketplaces are set up for digital artwork, but more are now supporting video, game assets, and music. Physical items are also now digitised as NFTs, for example physical limited edition Nike trainers.
Can anyone make an NFT? An NFT is a unique digital item with a sole owner. That rarity gives an NFT value. Make sure that you own the intellectual property rights to the item you want to turn into an NFT. Creating an NFT for a digital asset you don’t own could get you into legal trouble.
Can you trade NFTs for cash? “Non-fungible token” means a crypto asset that cannot be altered or reproduced. You can think of these tokens as the digital equivalent of artwork in a private collection. Each piece of art in the collection is unique and valued differently. Like pieces of art, an NFT can be sold for money or cryptocurrency.
