Sin duda alguna el mercado de los NFTs es un mercado muy transitorio. Por eso, para poder entender el “mundo NFT” necesitamos recorrer un camino a lo largo de la corta, pero completa historia del mercado de los tokens no fungibles.

Before he became THE Beeple, 40-year-old Mike Winkelmann was a computer-science-grad-turned-digital artist selling art prints for as little as $100. A few years later, Winkelmann will be known globally as Beeple, the third-most expensive living artist whose artwork sold for $69 million as an NFT at a Christie’s auction. He would be a global sensation; his sale was the beginning of an artistic revolution and, some would say, a historical inflection point.
Digital art lies at the intersection of technology and creativity. For years, artists have used software, computers, or other electronic devices to generate photographs, videos, digital paintings and animations. But NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have recently driven digital art to the forefront, enabling artists to cultivate communities of collectors who champion the artists’ visions and purchase their works – often for outstanding sums of money.
In the past, we could not differentiate the owners of digital artworks from someone who saved a copy of the art from the internet. The lack of clarity of property rights for markets to operate was a problem. But NFTs created an avenue with which creators and consumers can solve this problem by giving them something they can agree represents ownership. This indulges the possibility of building markets around new types of processes which include purchasing products that could never be sold before and allowing more efficient and valuable transactions to hold in dynamic ways.
It’s important to take time to learn the basics of allyship and inclusivity (see my article, Do These 2 Things Before You Do Anything As an Ally in Web3). After that, intent is the biggest differentiator between those that do, and those that don’t, care about creating equity for all.Want to be inclusive? Be intentional about being inclusive. Want to see more diversity? Be intentional about pushing for more diversity.
I've seen it from many folks in my short time in web3. An ally joins a Twitter space tailored to a specific underrepresented audience (Women, LGBTQ2IA, Black folks, etc.). At some point, the discussion addresses the challenges of that particular community in web3. The ally requests to speak, expresses their disgust and shock at what they've heard and asks, "what can we do?".
Historically, the appeal of digital art had been hampered by concerns from collectors on the peculiarity and rarity of digital works as a result of them being duplicated and easily distributed hence making them difficult to price and a possible poor resale value. However, NFTs, which work on blockchain technology just like Bitcoin, have proffered a solution to that problem. The blockchain technology on which NFTs work provides digital ledgers which act as irrevocable proof of ownership, and this ensures that the owner of such art is recognized no matter how much the art is redistributed.
The NFT hype may be seeing a gradual decline as is reflected in the search for the 2021 buzzword. Nevertheless, the concept of digital ownership continues to solidify its presence in digitization as more NFT use cases emerge. From digital creators to investors to financial and real estate markets, different means have been devised to use NFTs in accomplishing set goals.
NFTs are growing in popularity, and so are investments in them. Collecting NFTs is one of the smartest investment choices of 2022, but you would need an NFT wallet to do so. One important factor to note is that the NFT wallet should be able to support the currency you use to buy the NFT. For example, if you're buying an NFT with Ether, the wallet should be able to support the currency.
The Bored Ape Yacht Club broke onto the NFT (non-fungible token) scene in April 2021, the brainchild of four founders of Yuga Labs, known only by their pseudonyms at the time.
