What Can Be Considered as an NFT?
To answer your question in two words; anything digital. Anything digital could be sold as an NFT as long as you have proof of ownership. Twitters Ex-CEO, Jack Dorsey sold his very first tweet for $2 million USD.
Although this tweet was up for around 15 years, available for all to see, it still is but the ownership has been sold. What do you mean by that? You can tweet, screenshot it, do anything of it but just cannot use the same tweet on social media or you would be doing a copyright infringement.
It sounds complicated, right? Well, see it as blank paper. A blank paper is for everyone to use, unless and until you pay a price for it. Now, when you try to sell that paper, it won’t have any value unless you make something unique.
NFTs are those papers that are digitally stored on a ledger and are unique. Anything ranging from music, digital art, memes, tweets, videos etc. that verifies to be digital and owned by you can be an NFT.
