In their simplest form, Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs, are digital assets, such as photos, illustrations or even clips of music. NFTs have a limited edition quality, whether it’s one-of-a-kind or a batch of a select few. They work in a similar way to limited edition physical prints in so much as part of their value comes from their rarity. 

Another aspect of their value comes from how they work – NFTs are stored on the blockchain (a system that records all transactions made in cryptocurrency), so there’s a digital record showing the provenance of any asset. This means they can be traced back to the original owner or creator.
