Frequently asked questions

An NFT, or non-fungible token, is a type of digital item that is unique, provably scarce, tradeable, and usable across multiple applications. NFTs have different utilities depending on the creator on how they want to take advantage of its features. They also provide a secure and verifiable way to claim ownership of a specific digital piece, enabling artists and creators to monetize their work directly.

You can use an online marketplace such as OpenSea to purchase an NFT. OpenSea is the biggest and first online marketplace for NFTs and crypto collectibles worldwide.

Blockchain gas fees are charges that users must pay for the computational resources required to perform a transaction on a blockchain network. These fees, also known as "gas" charges, are necessary to incentivize miners or validators to process and validate transactions on the blockchain. Gas fees can vary depending on network congestion and the complexity of the transaction. Users need to ensure they have a sufficient balance of the applicable blockchain network tokens stored at their blockchain address to cover these fees before initiating a transaction.
