An NFT collection is a collection of digital assets, usually owned by a single entity, which users can buy into by locking their tokens up for a time period. Once the NFT collection's contract has been purchased, the buyer is given access to the NFT collection's contract, which allows them to withdraw any NFT from the collection at any time. NFT collections also have a withdrawal period, where a user can withdraw their NFT from an NFT collection after a specified time period, usually a few days. In total, NFT Collection basically allows users to list their NFTs, set up and track their collections, and buy and sell NFTs using the platform.

What is an NFT marketplace and how does it work?

An NFT marketplace is a platform where you can buy, sell, and rent non-fungible tokens (NFTs). In an NFT marketplace, users can display their NFTs and set their own price. The marketplace will automatically handle the exchange of ETH and tokens. NFT marketplace is a very exciting concept because it allows you to buy and sell NFTs from the comfort of your own home. The marketplace also gives freedom to users to tokenize their different digital assets such art, image, video, etc. For example, if you want to own a unique piece of art, but you don’t have $1 million to buy it, you could buy a token that represents a percentage of the piece of art. A common misconception is that NFTs are “crypto kitties” type of tokens. However, the fact is NFTs have the ability to be used for many real-world applications too.

Examples of what NFTs can be used for?

We are seeing a lot of NFTs used for social media interactions, with crypto-collectibles being the main ones for now. They can also be used as oracles for other crypto assets. NFTs are also useful for events, as they allow individuals to buy and sell tickets on the blockchain. The use cases for NFTs are virtually limitless. A few of them are:
  • Any sort of digital asset
  • Collectibles like CryptoKitties
  • Event tickets like YouNow
  • Artwork
  • Property titles
  • Tickets to events
  • Vehicle registrations
  • Accreditation badges
  • In-game items
  • Identity documents
  • Digital items that can be enumerated

What Are the Benefits of NFTs?

NFTs have a number of benefits to both the individuals and the businesses. Here are a few of the benefits of NFTs:
  • NFTs can be traded on any exchange
  • NFTs can be given as gifts
  • NFTs can increase in value as the blockchain ecosystem grows
  • NFTs can be fully customized to suit the needs of the creator
  • NFTs can be used to create a better user experience

How Much Does it Cost to Create An NFT?

The cost of creating an NFT depends on the type of the NFT itself, and the cost of the resources used to create it. Artists usually create NFTs for free, or in exchange for a share of the profits from the sale of the NFT. A good example of this is Ox, a unique digital art piece created by two artists. NFTs can also be created using the resources from the developer of the blockchain platform that the NFT will run on. This is often done as an incentive to attract developers or blockchain enthusiasts and to create an ecosystem that will help the platform grow. A company can also create an NFT on managing the blockchain platform. This is often done to secure a certain level of participation in the platform from the users. Or we can also say that there is no cost to create an NFT. NFTs are created using EOS tokens, just like anything else on the blockchain. The only difference is that the transaction fee is set by the publisher instead of the network. This means publishers can set the transaction fee to zero in order to encourage the creation of NFTs.
