Use of NMT for digital creative work
NFTs are unique digital assets based on blockchain technology. They consist of identifying information stored in smart contracts that can be used to verify authenticity and ownership – two of the main problems associated with digital artworks. Those who issue or mint NFEs may determine both the price and the number of copies. Since NFEs cannot be copied, the creator can perpetuate the scarcity or uniqueness of the good and artificially increase its value. The application of copyright law to NMT can be defined in two ways: The first is where the copyright belongs to the buyer, and the second is where the artist retains the copyright.
Recent increase in popularity
Although NFTs have been around in the cryptocurrency space since 2017, they have been in the news this year, topping the total closed sales of over $325 million in May. This is a huge increase in popularity compared to the total NFT transaction volume of $250 million for all of 2020, according to NonFungible data. The internet and social media have made it possible for artists to upload and share their digital works, but unfortunately the ease of promotion has been accompanied by piracy of these works. Blockchain technology, however, not only helps authenticate and own artwork, but also allows artists to truly monetize their work.
