NFTs as a real Web3 problem

NFTs have revolutionized the management of property in art. Non-Fungible Tokens, abbreviated to NFT, are digital tokens that represent ownership of works with unique characteristics. In other words, they are not interchangeable. Therefore, they cannot be replaced by each other. Being registered on the blockchain, their authenticity and unique ownership can be verified. As a reminder, an NFT can only have one owner at a time and cannot be copied. This feature has won over millions of enthusiasts who have set out to conquer this new innovation.

Some would have expected NFTs to be scrapped with the bear market. This was without factoring in the resilience of the NFT market. So according to MarketandMarkets, the estimated value of the NFT industry is worth $3 billion by 2022, with an estimated growth rate of 35%. As a result, the NFT market is expected to be worth 13.6 billion by 2027.

Also, many NFT projects are emerging. We can particularly cite Tamadoge or Battle Infinity. The craze around NFTs is very present. Take effect, their democratization now goes beyond art and video games, as they can be utilitarian or serve for exchange in certain cases. NFTs are part of the new world whose cornerstone is Web3. We therefore understand the interest in an event like NFT Paris.
