PICKLEZONE aims to connect the sport and finance world through the fast-growing game of pickleball. If you’ve joined our app, we know that you already have a passion for the sport and more than a passing interest in the world of NFTs.
Let’s take a look at what exactly an NFT is and the membership benefits of being a PICKLEZONE NFT member.
What are NFTs?
NFTs are non-fungible tokens; they’re digital assets representing real-world objects like art, GIFs, videos, music, collectibles, virtual avatars, designer sneakers, video game skins, etc. When we break down the word ‘non-fungible,’ it simply means that an NFT cannot be exchanged or equal to another.
They are considered part of Web3—this is a catch-all term for the vision of a better internet that gives the power back to the user instead of private companies. Web3 consists of blockchains, cryptocurrencies, and, of course, NFTs.
NFTs started popping up in 2014 and have skyrocketed in popularity, with the market now worth over $41 billion.
NFTs exist on the blockchain, the public ledger that keeps track of all cryptocurrency transactions. They are considered collector’s items. When you purchase one, you get exclusive ownership rights.
