How to create and manage your own blockchain NFT

Case #

NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, are unique digital assets that exist on a blockchain, typically Ethereum. Unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ether, which are fungible and can be exchanged on a like-for-like basis, NFTs represent ownership or proof of authenticity of a specific item, whether it's digital art, collectibles, virtual real estate, or other unique digital assets. NFTs utilize blockchain technology to provide a decentralized and transparent system for verifying ownership and provenance, enabling creators and collectors to buy, sell, and trade these unique digital assets in a secure and trustless manner.

This article provides guidance on how How to create and manage your own blockchain NFT.
