What you need to know about NFTs and the blockchain

Move over cryptocurrencies. There’s a new kid on the block(chain) – non-fungible tokens (NFTs). And if you’re an investor, you need to know about them. Because there is real money being spent, and fortunes being made.

For some people, cryptocurrencies represent all that is wrong with unbridled capitalism, ultra-low interest rates, investor behaviour and even millennials. For many investors, if not most, ‘cryptos’ represent a parallel universe.

NFTs have become one of the hottest topics in the cryptosphere. And yet, despite a rapidly growing adoption, NFTs are an enigma to almost everyone outside the blockchain omniverse.

  1. Amazing article. Great to see such a topic on your website. Real money is being spent and fortunes are being made – this is so true

  2. Back in 2000, I remember laughing about how some kid sold his air guitar on eBay for $15.

    Now people are spending hundreds of millions on air collectables. Call me a Luddite, but I don’t think NFTs will gain mainstream appeal anytime soon. And so we may be about to see another bubble pop.

  3. The real question Roger, is “who controls the exchange platform ?” (e.g. as the ASX is to shares), because if you can find that, then you can find who “clips the ticket” and thus, makes money.
