If you aren’t already tuned into the cryptocurrency market or blockchain technology in general, you probably fall into one of two camps when it comes to non-fungible token (NFTs): Those who are curious about how to invest in them, or those who see them as just another crypto-fad.
But if you’re an artist, you really should look into this evolving technology. Not just because it’s a whole new way to sell your creations on the internet, but because it can actually help you protect your art in a way that a simple copyright can’t. Luckily, there’s a quick and entertaining way to get up to speed on the world of non-fungible tokens: How to Create Your First NFT: The Beginner’s Guide.
Compared to the work of creating your art, the act of turning it into an NFT is relatively easy—if you know how. In this breezy half-hour course, entrepreneur Benjamin Wilson walks you through the process, showing you how to link a piece of artwork, music, or even a text to the blockchain code that will render it into a unique item.
That unique nature is part of what makes an NFT valuable, but even if you never make a dime from the direct selling of your NFT, you’ve now established ownership. That’s vitally important in a world where people can routinely lift and appropriate images for their own use. And of course, you’ll also learn how to navigate the marketplaces that have sprung up around NFTs and why the successful ones can fetch thousands or even millions of real-world dollars. It’s a great way for artists, investors, and entrepreneurs to see how this particular use of blockchain can forever change how art is sold and appreciated.
