NFTs for Digital Assets

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, have been making headlines in recent years as a new and exciting way to own and trade digital assets. But what are NFTs, how do they work, and what are some of the benefits and drawbacks of this new technology?

What is an NFT?

Simply put, an NFT is a digital asset that is unique and cannot be replicated. Unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, which are fungible and can be exchanged for other units of the same value, each NFT is one-of-a-kind and has its own distinct value. NFTs can take many forms, including artwork, music, videos, and other digital files.

How do NFTs work?

NFTs are built on blockchain technology, which is the same technology that powers cryptocurrencies. Blockchain is a decentralized and transparent ledger that records all transactions in a secure and immutable way. Each NFT is created on a blockchain, which ensures that it is unique, tamper-proof, and cannot be duplicated or copied.

When you purchase an NFT, you are essentially buying the ownership rights to a specific digital asset. The NFT serves as proof of ownership, and the transaction is recorded on the blockchain for all to see. This allows for transparency and accountability in the buying and selling of digital assets.

Benefits of NFTs

NFTs offer several benefits for creators, collectors, and investors alike. For creators, NFTs provide a new way to monetize their digital content, as they can sell ownership rights to their artwork, music, or videos directly to collectors without the need for intermediaries such as galleries or record labels.

For collectors, NFTs provide a way to own and trade unique digital assets in a secure and transparent way. They can also benefit from the potential appreciation in value of certain NFTs, which can be influenced by factors such as the popularity of the artist, the rarity of the asset, and the demand from buyers.

For investors, NFTs provide a new asset class that can potentially generate high returns. Some NFTs have sold for millions of dollars, and the market for NFTs is expected to continue to grow as more people become interested in this new technology.

Drawbacks of NFTs

Despite their many benefits, NFTs also have some drawbacks that should be considered before investing in them. One of the main concerns is the environmental impact of the blockchain technology used to create and trade NFTs. The energy consumption required to power blockchain networks is significant, and some have raised concerns about the carbon footprint of NFTs.

Another concern is the potential for fraud and scams in the NFT market. Since NFTs are relatively new and unregulated, it is important to be cautious when buying and selling them. Some NFTs may be falsely advertised or misrepresented, and buyers should do their due diligence before making any purchases.


NFTs represent a new and exciting way to own and trade digital assets. They offer benefits for creators, collectors, and investors, but also come with some drawbacks that should be considered. As the market for NFTs continues to grow and evolve, it will be interesting to see how this new technology changes the way we think about ownership and value in the digital world.

  1. I don't figure this out at all. I understand that NFTs and cryptocurrencies are something that really needs attention now, but there is too much information.

  2. I recently ran NFT transactions in Oracle Blockchain using deployed chain code. To use the NFT chain code I need to configure user IDs to be mapped to accounts and call critical APIs, here is a useful Oracle for NFT 2.0 link. Now that the NFT chain code is deployed and I know how to create token URIs in IPFS, I can call the chain code using the REST API.
