NFTs - “non-fungible tokens” representing digital assets traded in cryptocurrency - aren’t going anywhere. And now, for the first time ever, there’s a handy pocket field guide!
NFTs: An Illustrated Field Guide is a beautifully illustrated guide to NFTs—a must-have for anyone interested in entering the NFT universe and learning about this incredible new trend that, for many people, may seem futuristic and obscure at first! Non-fungible tokens, so called because they are uniquely coded files “tokenized,” or stored on a blockchain ledger, are a new way to create, sell, trade, and collect unique digital assets. Each NFT can be traced by anyone to its owner by an imbedded digital code within it. Why “non-fungible”? Because, unlike a “fungible” form of currency like the US dollar, NFTs cannot be swapped any one for any other. Instead, each unique NFT must be purchased with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, and on a special online trading platform.
Written by finance expert Alyssa Place, and beautifully illustrated by Rebecca Pry, this field guide will walk you through the various categories of NFTS, like collectibles, art, land, sports, and more. Inside this elegant paperback, you’ll find profiles on individual NFTs, each showcasing a full-page illustration, plus definitions of NFT terms, information on how and where to find NFTs, and how to collect them. It’s a complicated but excited world out there, and this visually stunning field guide will help you join the fun!?
