Create A Nft

An NFT is a Non-Fungible Token - that means that each token is unique and can't be replaced by another token.

NFTs are a new way to create digital assets that are limited in quantity. Every time someone buys the NFT, they get the ability to use it in their game or app and they also get a share of the profits from any future sale of this asset.

Want to create your own? The three best tools for creating NFTs are Scryfall, NFT.club, and CryptoKitties.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a NFT:
