What are NFTs and Why They Have Become so Popular?

As explained in our guide, NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are different from regular crypto-assets as they can only be used to represent ownership of unique items that can be traded on Ethereum marketplaces. NFTs cannot be exchanged with one another because each item is a unique digital asset.

Decentraland, an NFT-powered virtual world and videogame, has become an attractive digital environment for crypto-enthusiast where they can own parcels of LAND, as well as buying, selling, and auctioning NFT collectibles with the community. The protocol also announced a layer-two bridge for MANA token transfers, enabling users to move MANA tokens to Polygon and back.
