Why are NFTs so attractive?
NFTs have a strong appeal to collectors. Many of them will buy them at a price today hoping to sell at a higher price and make a profit in the future. The characteristics of NFTs make the authentication process very secure. Besides, buying and selling occurs quickly.
Each NFT is unique and cannot be replicated. Each token is registered in the blockchain selected by the seller. This chain stores the ownership of the NFT. Since blockchains are inviolable, impersonation scams are impossible. Generally, most NFT transactions are executed with the cryptocurrency Ether, native to the Ethereum network.
