NFT is a digital asset that differs from other virtual assets by using blockchain technology , also used in cryptocurrencies.
What is the NFT market and what is it for?
NFTs are virtual assets that allow virtual ownership of something to be verified through blockchain technology.
The verification process is carried out in a 100% decentralized and transparent manner.
NFTs are considered “non-fungible” since they are not the same and, therefore, cannot be replaced by others.
That is, each NFT is unique and the proof of possession is not in a centralized registry, but within a blockchain.
This implies that it is not possible to “hack” NFTs because all participants have copies of existing positions on their devices.
Currently the most used blockchain in the NFT market is Ethereum, such as:
Axie Infinity Marketplace

its owner can access a percentage of the profits for future sales automatically
establish direct contact with a certain community
