The NFT market is a new way to buy and sell art. You can use it to buy and sell just about anything, from digital photos to paintings. But it's also easy to get carried away with the hype surrounding these virtual objects: some people are making big money selling worthless pieces of artwork as "real" art! So what's going on here? Let's take a closer look at what an NFT is, how they're made (and when they won't be), why some artists choose not to participate in this emerging industry trend—and more importantly: do they still count as real art?

Where do you sell NFTs?

NFTs are traded on exchanges.

Exchanges are like stock exchanges, but instead of stocks they trade in virtual assets that can be represented by a virtual object (NFT). These objects are often referred to as "tokens" or "collectibles". Exchanges allow users to buy and sell the tokens they own, which is how people make money from owning them. Some NFTs are sold on the secondary market; others on the primary market; others still may never have been traded at all! You'll find specialized exchanges for certain types of collectibles or games, general purpose ones for most things—and sometimes even both!

How do you make NFTs?

NFTs are created by artists, and the process of creating an NFT is similar to how you make a traditional artwork.

The first step is to decide what kind of artwork you'd like to make. Then, you can choose from several different kinds of materials (such as wood or stone) and add your own personal stamp on it by painting it in another color or adding elements that represent who you are as an artist.

Next comes storing your work in a digital format so that everyone can access it—this is called "encrypting" because each person has their own private key that allows them access only when they share their public key with someone else who also has their own private key..

What determines the value of an NFT?

The value of an NFT is determined by a variety of factors. These include:

The artist's reputation and popularity

The quality of the art

Its scarcity (if it is rare or out-of-print)

Demand for that particular piece of work

Supply. If there are fewer copies available than people want to buy, then the price goes up!

Is the NFT craze going to last?

NFTs are here to stay. They're a new way to buy and sell art, and they will help artists make money. The more people who use them, the better it is for everyone involved: you can buy your favorite artwork from an artist at an affordable price; the artist gets paid for their work; and buyers get access to unique pieces that were previously only available to collectors or museums (or both).

Now that you know what NFTs are, it's time to learn how they work!

What kinds of art are being sold as NFTs?

NFTs are not limited to just paintings and sculptures. You can even buy an NFT that's a piece of music, video games or other digital content.

Some people have argued that selling your own artwork as an NFT would be unethical because it would infringe on their copyright. But this is not the case here—you're simply selling a copy of what you made with your own hands, and you don't have any ownership rights to the original work itself (although if someone else buys one from you then they'll probably want to pay for their own copy).

If the art is online, why pay for it?

If the art is online, why pay for it?

NFTs are digital art. They can be kept in a digital wallet, traded on an exchange (like GDC), sold on an auction site (like Artnet), or sold on a secondary market.

If you have your own NFT, you need to decide whether you want to keep it yourself or sell it as well as who would be interested in buying it from you and how much they would be willing to pay.

Is this just a money grab?

It's important to remember that NFTs are not just a money grab. They're a new way for artists to make art, and it's up to them how they want their work to be sold.

It's also important not to think of this as just another fad or trend — because it isn't. The most successful artists in graphic design, fashion and music have been using blockchain technology for years now; if an artist can make money from selling copies of their paintings online through NFTs then we should all support them!

Is there anything legitimate about the NFT market?

NFTs are a new way to buy and sell art. They’re still a relatively small part of the art market, but they have the potential to grow rapidly as more people become familiar with them. The NFT market is often compared with other types of crowdfunding, such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo. However, unlike these platforms where you can get money directly from your friends or family members (and sometimes strangers), using an NFT platform requires that you go through an intermediary like P2PEXchange who will then sell your token on exchange platforms like Waves DEX or Bancor Network. This means that while some might feel comfortable donating directly to charity through their blockchain-based wallet accounts without having any idea what happens next in terms of reaching its intended goal(s), others may be hesitant about trusting someone else's generosity toward something so speculative at this stage - especially when there aren't many examples yet available outside crypto circles!

NFTs are not limited by the physical world. You can own both your own original piece of art and also have access to other people's copies of that same work (or even entire series of works).

The number of copies that can be made doesn't matter; if you buy one copy from one seller, you're still able to trade with others who have those same pieces in their collections.


The NFT market is a legitimate new way to buy and sell art, but it's easy to get carried away. If you're considering selling your own NFTs, remember that this is a relatively new phenomenon, so it will take time for laws and regulations to catch up with technology. Don't rush into it—take the time to educate yourself on how things work before doing anything rash!
