What are NFTs? We're glad you asked!

NFTs (or “non-fungible tokens”) are a special kind of "crypto-asset", similar to "Bitcoin" or other cryptocurrencies, but instead of being the currency themselves, they are instead each UNIQUE — as opposed to “fungible” assets like Bitcoin and dollar bills, which are all worth exactly the same amount. Because every NFT is unique, they can be used to authenticate ownership of digital assets like artworks, recordings, and virtual real estate or pets.

In other words when you own the NFT of this letter between Gary and Jim, it is 100% unique and uncopyable. You, and you alone, will own this digital artifact.

NFTs have value: you can retain this letter for your personal collection or sell it at a later time just as you could any other collectible or piece of art.
