NFT = Scam ?

NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are the subject of heated debate as to their true value and legitimacy. While some see them as a revolution in the way we create, exchange and own digital assets, others call them a scam...
Digital Property Explained
On the "classic" Internet, it is often difficult to define the real ownership of a digital asset. You may have accounts on social networks, virtual objects in online games, but in the end, these assets don't really belong to you. The platforms on which they are hosted retain total control over these "digital objects".

On the other hand, NFTs open up a new era for digital property. Thanks to blockchain technology, each NFT is unique, indelible and unforgeable. If you own an NFT, you actually own the associated digital asset, be it a work of art, a video, a piece of music or any other digital content.
An NFT is first and foremost a (digital)title deed . It could be a special document that says you're the owner of a unique and valuable object, such as a work of art, a song, a video game or even a funny video. This special document is your NFT!

Like a title deed to a house, the NFT indicates that you are the one and only owner of this digital object. No one else can claim to own the same thing as you. It's like having a magic key that gives you access to something very special in the digital world.

A famous example is the NFT of a monkey that was sold for a huge sum. But it' s important to understand that NFTs aren't just for monkeys or funny objects or scams! They can represent all sorts of different and interesting things.

A concrete example: the digital artist and his NFTs
Let's take the example of a talented digital artist who shares her creations on social networks. Despite her success, she struggles to get a fair wage for her work.

Thanks to NFTs, this artist can now offer her works as NFTs and sell them directly to her fans. In this way, she can be fairly rewarded for her talent and creative investment.

For example:
  1. An illustrator can create an NFT to sell her digital drawings and prove that you are the sole owner of this work. Something that wasn't possible before. Where the only way was to sell prints and merchandising...
  2. A musician can sell an NFT for his special special song.
  3. A video game designer can use an NFT to give access to rare or special items in his game, or even have his entire game produce NFTs, which are the items your character can wear in the game.

In fact, NFTs can even be used for more practical things, like proving you own a house or a car. in real life as in a video game or even to give access to exclusive events as a member card (as long as the authorities have accepted this modality).

The idea behind NFTs is to enable creators and artists to have control over their work and be rewarded for their creations. It's also a way of making digital objects more special and giving them real value, just like objects you can touch in the real world.
