Dublin, Nov. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “NFTs and the Virtual Economy” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) refer to unique and distinguishable digital assets stored on a distributed ledger/blockchain. Following the emergence of the bitcoin digital currency in early 2009, “colored coins” were coined by Yoni Assia in 2012; these were small parts of bitcoins that represented assets, primarily digital collectibles, and were the predecessor to NFTs.
In 2017, John Watkinson and Matt Hall created CryptoPunks, 24×24 pixel characters that exist on an Ethereum blockchain. Only 10,000 such characters with unique appearances were created, leading to tremendous buzz amongst a community of crypto users who treated ownership as a badge of honor.
This served as an inspiration for NFTs, which has now become a potentially lucrative technology, creating value for businesses across the globe.
