What the f**k is an NFT anyway?

NFT_graphic

NFTs – that's non-fungible tokens, are dominating news headlines and catching the eye of dozens of our favourite artists. 

The non-fungible” part means something unique and the “token” part can be taken as shorthand for a digital item such as a song, an image or a video.

There are a huge number of marketplaces dedicated to the sale of NFTs. These include OpenSea, Rarible, Nifty Gateway and SuperRare – so think of them like different auction houses that sell physical items such as Christie’s, or Sotheby’s.

A better internet experience

Welcome to Shopping-Britain.co.uk Hopefully you will find our efforts worthwhile, and beneficial to your online shopping.

 Before you can acquire one, however, you need a digital wallet set up with enough cryptocurrency in it to buy what you are after. As most NFT sales happen on the Ethereum blockchain you will most likely need to invest in Ether. This does not come cheap. 1 ether is currently trading at £1,570.

Essentially it is as usual about fashion. Just like buying a painting from a first-year art student, you hope they will become famous so that owning an early example of their work will eventually be worth a lot more than you originally paid for it. 

But for art lovers, its an exciting new way to own and sell artworks, and could make a shrewd investment opportunity since unlike a conventional painting, it can't be stolen as its a secure token on a blockchain but can be sold on with a percentage return of each future sale being returned to the original investor.

NFT-s is a new website set up to deal in a range of images created specifically as NFT-s. The image, "N_eff-Tee at the 4th" shown here (click image for full screen view) documents the situation at a golf club at Llanymynech, which is straddled between England and Wales, and where an English player tees off at the 4th in England but cannot, due to Covid regulations, follow the ball into Wales to play the hole, and complete the rest of the course.

Even the club's Welsh members cannot get a Gin and Tonic at the club-house after play, since it is also closed by the pandemic - so the sequel image on NFT-s  (click image for full screen view) demonstrates the virus winning at this point too, hence the title "N_eff-gee N_T at the 19th".

Interestingly the site uses images from the Hubble Telescope courtesy of NASA to set the idea of NFT-s, and which is also all about new beginnings in this digital age. 'Taking a cue from NASA's pictures of the ever changing nebula, NFT-s offers unique art to the discerning collector.' All artworks listed there have been uploaded and had their information validated on an Ethereum blockchain.  

Selected artworks will shortly be available for sale by bidding in an NFT Auction.
