The evolution of civilization and the creativity of human beings often go hand in hand and as humans have evolved, so has music, art and architecture. Today however creativity has entered the digital age and many expressions of art are now being digitised.
Besides being a new way for creators to express themselves, digitisation technology is crucial to protect creative rights and property. Nowadays when people hear the term digital art for many of them the first term that comes to mind is NFT.
However interestingly art only accounts for a quarter of NFT sales. NFT which stands for Non Fungible Token is a lot more than just digital art. To describe NFT in a nutshell it is a unique digital asset that has a certificate of authenticity and ownership which is created via blockchain technology. The term asset in this case can apply to art, music, tweets, video clips and even real estate.
