This article will be highlighting every single one of the most asked questions about NFTs in 2022. So, I was browsing through my Quora feed and I noticed that in every twenty new questions asked on the platform, there were about two that contained questions relating to NFTs and that’s when the realization hit me that a lot of people keep hearing the term NFTs everywhere but don’t really know what it means or just have a faint idea of what its all about.
You may be reading this article because you’re this person or you might be someone who has already gotten into NFTs but you want to know more about what you’re dealing with. Well, this article’s got you! I’ve got you!
In this article, I won’t be going too deep into the basics of NFTs because I have already written an article on that already. It’s a very detailed guide that I made so easy to get that even an elementary school pupil should be able to understand what it’s all about. You can check out the article below:
Now, without stalling any longer, let’s get right into the most asked questions about NFTs this year according to lots of sources from which I compiled this article on the internet.
The Most Asked Questions on NFTs in 2022
1. What is an NFT?
Pretty predictable right? That the first question anyone would want to know would be the definition of NFTs itself. Well, NFT is an acronym for “Non Fungible Tokens”. It is a unique, verified digital asset that may be transferred between the maker of the asset and a buyer.
The one-of-a-kind attribute is significant in distinguishing NFTs from many other digital assets; unlike a dollar bill or a piece of stock, each NFT is different and has its own worth.
2. Are NFTs Cryptocurrency?
NFTs and Cryptocurrency are NOT the same things. But they do have lots of things linking them together. The first is that both NFTs and Cryptocurrencies rely on Blockchain transactions to confirm their authenticity and also to make a record of their ownership.
Also, you need Cryptocurrency to purchase NFTs. Most NFTs are purchased in Ethereum. But, the biggest difference between NFTs and cryptocurrencies is the fact that the value of a Cryptocurrency comes from its utilities as either an investment or a Currency but it’s not the same for an NFT.
3. How Many Types of NFTs Do We Have?
Anyone can make an NFT to show their ownership of almost any item; we may well have merely scraped the surface thus far. The most common current types of NFTs are:
- Art: NFTs can be linked to a one-of-a-kind, collectible piece of digital artwork, music, moments, memes, or other forms of online stuff.
- As a Utility: NFTs can be used to gain access to exclusive events, authenticate domain ownership and identification, and provide interoperable data that enhances present internet capabilities.
- Gaming and Metaverse: NFTs are transforming the way people think about ownership in online games and environments. Within NFT games, you can buy real-world products that you can resell for a real-world profit in the real world.
4. Are NFTs a Good investment?
Well, NFTs are a Good investment for some people and they are also completely useless from the point of view of some other individuals. So, only you can decide if it’s a good investment or not.
5. What is an NFT Marketplace?
An NFT marketplace is any platform where you may purchase and sell NFTs and NFT collections, as well as build them in some situations. Marketplaces enable creators and digital designers to mint and sell unique NFTs.
NFT transactions take occur on the blockchain, yet marketplaces exist online and may be accessed via a web browser just like any other website.
6. Why are NFTs so Expensive to Get?
Okay! So, the reason why some NFTs are so expensive to get depends on two factors. The first factor is the popularity of the creator. That is the artist that created such digital art. If the person that created an NFT is a very popular person. Let’s take Takashi Murakami as an example. He created the Flower NFT and the price of one of these goes as high as 18,000 USD.
I doubt a local artist somewhere in the world can list an NFT for that amount and sell their NFT for that amount. Another factor depends on the message conveyed by digital art. If there’s a piece of artwork as an NFT and it carries a lot of meaning then it’ll feel valuable to others compared to NFTs that are just created for the fun of it.
7. How Can I Make Money From NFTs?
NFTs, like stocks, can be purchased and then sold when their value changes. The greatest approach to making money with NFTs is to purchase low and sell high.
While you can manufacture NFTs by minting them, you must take in other costs such as royalties, site fees, account setup fees, listing price, and gas fees when determining profits.
Whether you wish to buy and eventually sell or build NFTs, you must first understand how the world of NFTs works and what will and will not sell or risk losing your money. You can also seek expert assistance.
8. Where can I buy NFTs?
Getting NFTs is very easy and you can do this by visiting NFT Marketplaces. Some of the best marketplaces out there are OpenSea – My personal favorite, Axie Marketplace, Rarible, Larva Labs, NBA Top Shot Marketplace, Nifty gateway, and lots more…
9. Are NFTs Dying? / Are NFTs Still Popular?
Lmao! Okay! NFTs aren’t dying but the rave about them is significantly going down. At the beginning of 2022, more than a million accounts were recorded to be actively selling and buying NFTs but right now as of July, there are just about half of that number still buying and selling NFTs. I can actually attribute the decline to what’s currently going on in the Cryptocurrency market.
I should be writing an article very soon on how the Cryptocurrency market has affected the NFT World. Make sure you stay updated with FaqonTech and turn on our post notifications to get access to the article first-hand once it’s uploaded.
10. What is a POAP NFT?
POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol) is a mechanism for producing a blockchain token that captures noteworthy events. For example, event organizers may design a POAP that is distributed to event attendees.
11. Can Anyone Make an NFT?
YES! Anyone can make their own NFTs. The procedure takes place on the blockchain, but you don’t need to understand how it works to create an NFT. There are numerous websites that make it simple to mint an NFT via the Web2 internet. To know more about the Web2 internet, you can check out this article I wrote about the flaws of Web 2.0 and why we need Web 3.0 today – https://faqontech.com/web3-web-3-0-the-ultimate-eye-opening-guide-you-need/
12. Can You Screenshot an NFT? / Can NFTs be Copied?
Why not? You can definitely screenshot an NFT the same way you can just screenshot every other thing on the Internet. The only difference between “screenshotting” an NFT and actually purchasing one is that the NFT that was screenshot has no value at all but the one that was actually purchased has the value at which it was bought!
13. Do NFTs Have Copyright?
Copyright gives the possessor exclusive rights to use, reproduce, distribute, publicly display, and perform a creative item.
Because it is not immediately obvious that possession of an NFT grants copyright to whichever digital asset the token signifies, the creator may trade an NFT expressing their work and is not barred from making other NFTs of the same work.
Therefore, an NFT is only proof of ownership independent from copyright. In that instance, any licensing of an underlying NFT’s copyright would have to be handled independently.
14. Can I Patent my NFT?
No! You cannot patent your NFT because NFTs do not meet the criteria for Patents.
15. Do NFTs Harm the Environment?
NFTs themselves have a little environmental impact, however how they are produced can have significant environmental consequences. Most NFTs are purchased and sold using Ethereum, a cryptocurrency that consumes a lot of energy and emits a lot of greenhouse gas emissions.
As a result, they have no direct influence on the environment, but the manner in which they are purchased and sold does.
16. Are NFTs Scams?
No! NFTs are not scams. But, there are a lot of scams that have been built because of NFTs.
Impersonation is the most popular sort of NFT scam today. Fraudsters will imitate the profile images of artists and popular NFT influencers and distribute similar-looking NFTs. Inexperienced buyers may not think to check the profile before purchasing digital art from these profiles, especially for low-cost, high-quantity NFT collections.
17. Are NFTs Stupid?
To some people, they are! Some individuals believe that the concept of ordinary pictures holding value makes no sense at all. But, on the other hand, some people believe that it mirrors the concept of having valuable artwork in real life. For example, the Mona Lisa is one of the most expensive pieces of art in the world. So, why can’t digital art carry that same value?
Well, everyone has their own opinions on NFTs and I respect that!
