Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) seem to have outbursts this year. From drawings and songs to video clips and gifs, these digital assets are selling like MiddleEast oils —some for millions of dollars.

But are these NFTs worth the juice—or just a bluff? Some experts say they’re like sound-making clouds that will never rain, like the dot-com craze or Beanie Babies. Others believe NFTs shall rock the market and that will change the whole marketing game.

What Is NFT? 

An NFT is a digital asset that depicts real-world artifacts such as art, music, in-game artifacts, and videos. They are purchased and sold online, often with cryptocurrency, and they are usually encrypted with the same underlying software as a lot of cryptos.

Despite their existence since 2014, NTFs are gaining prominence now because they are becoming an increasingly popular means of buying and selling digital art. A staggering $174 million has gone into the NFTs since November 2017.

NTFs are typically unique, or at least a very limited series, and have unique identifiers. "Basically, NFTs are creating a digital shortage," says Arry Yu, managing director of Yellow Umbrella Ventures and chairperson of  Washington Technology Industry Association Cascadia Blockchain Council.

This contrasts sharply with most digital creations, which are almost always endless. Hypothetically, cutting off supply is expected to increase the value of a particular asset, assuming it is in demand.

However, many NTFs, at least in their early stages, are digital creations that already exist in one form or another elsewhere, such as iconic video clips from the NBA or titled versions of digital art already floating on Instagram. 

Anybody can view single images, or even the full collage of images online for free. Then why are people prepared to spend millions on something they could easily screen capture or download? Because an NFT makes it possible for the buyer to possess the original article.

In addition, there is built-in authentication, which serves as proof of ownership. Hobbyists appreciate "digital bragging rights" nearly as much as the thing itself.
