In 2014, Kevin McCoy created the world’s first NFT known as Quantum on the digital image blockchain, and since then there has been a significant amount of growth in the NFT market. If you're new to the whole world of NFTs, you might be asking, what are NFTs and can photographers make money selling them?

The first NFT to make a real splash was Beeple’s collage, Everyday: The First 5,000 Days which sold for a whopping $69 million dollars at Christie’s. Since then the likes of Instagram, Associated Press, baby photographer Anne Geddes and even Magnum photos have started selling NFTs and there is some serious money to be made.
