NFTs of my Art Available Now: But Why Buy an NFT?
If you know what one is, you might wonder, Why buy an NFT? You’ve probably heard of them, but may not know what they actually are, and if you do, you might think they’re not for you. Read on and find out what they are and why you might consider buying one.
What is an NFT?
An NFT (non-fungible Token) is a digital asset that is unique and not interchangeable with another one of the same value. It can be a piece of art, music, video, game item, or any other content, and it’s linked to the blockchain, the digital database that also supports cryptocurrencies. It has a certificate of authenticity that makes it distinguishable from all other tokens. If you buy one of my artworks, I can still display it here, but you own it. And I only sell one of each.
People buy and sell art made into NFTs as they would with physical art. And I now have some artworks, either videos from here or the images from which I created them, on sale as NFTs.
Here’s an angel from my Women of Power collection on Opensea.
Why would you want to buy an NFT?
With all these art images available to view free on the web, why, you might wonder, would I want to pay for one? Here’s why:
Aren’t NFTs expensive?
We hear about the extreme end of the market, because that the sensationalism on which media thrives, but most NFTs are reasonably priced – at the time of minting anyway. I’ve seen many between the prices of USD$20-50. Mine are in that range. Around $30 for a still image and $50 for a video.
Don’t you need cryptocurrency to buy NFTs?
No. On marketplaces like Opensea and Rarible, where I have my NFTs, you can buy using your credit card. Fees apply, of course. Everything to do with NFTs has some kind of transaction fee attached to it that someone has to pay at some point.
Have a look at what I have available, they’re only up for a month, and if you’d rather have a different image or video, let me know which one and I’ll mint it for you.
