NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) have become extremely popular this year and some NFTs are sold for millions of dollars. As per Wikipedia “A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files.”
