What is NFT?
NFT stands for: Non-fungible token, which represents ownership of a digital asset linked to the blockchain database. NFTs have unique properties; making no two NFTs identical. Unlike fungible assets on the blockchain database (ex: bitcoins, ethereum, etc.), NFTs are not exchangeable or replaced with another identical NFT of the same value. NFTs could represent: GIFs, collectibles, music, videos, and much more. Every NFT has only one official owner at a time, secured by the blockchain, and holds a record of ownership that cannot be modified.

If you don’t have enough information about NFTs, we highly recommend that you do your own research before you decide to purchase any of our items.
Are NFTs a good investment?
NFTs are not just an image or a video you watch on your screen. They are valuable digital assets with unique properties that cannot be copied, and a proof of ownership. Although you can make endless copies of any digital file on the internet, and share it with your friends, you can never have the original file and the proof of ownership of its rights. NFTs protect artists and buyers, with the fact that only one owner can claim ownership of the rights of the NFT. This makes the NFT even more scarce. NFTs are a digital form of art with a potential to exceptionally increase in value by time, just like traditional art but in a modern way. Some NFTs come with utilities, giving the owner advantages by purchasing them. By purchasing our NFTs, you automatically have the right to sell them back and trade them. Also, some of our NFTs come with the real diamond, giving you the chance not only to trade the NFT but also the diamond.
