A how-to guide (not a ‘should-you’ guide)
Recently I wrote a piece intended to unpack the mysterious world of NFTs — Non Fungible Tokens. I wanted to understand what they were and how they worked.
My interest was prompted by the news that artist Beeple (aka Mike Winkelman) had sold an NFT — essentially a digital token of ownership to one of his artworks for over $69 million in a Christies auction. This happened around the same time that Jack Dorsey auctioned the token representing his first Tweet for over $4m.
In the aftermath of that article, a reader (thanks!) reached out, sharing his impressions on NFT and art. He pointed me towards an NFT that was currently for sale on OpenSea — what appeared to be a kids drawing of a Tesla Crypto Truck painted in desert camouflage.
