The role of NFTs – non-fungible tokens – is to provide proof of ownership. NFTs are usually associated with digital artwork and collectibles sold at huge prices. In September 2021, the global art industry witnessed the highest peak of sales involving NFTs with a total of $843,550.

Synapse Research LTD., a trusted provider of NFT project management services, believes that the noise about NFTs shows that they offer endless possibilities. New opportunities are opening up for investors, enterprises, and other interested parties that should be taken into account.

What Are NFTs?

Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are unique and indivisible tokens. Emerging as a new type of digital asset, they represent a certificate of ownership of physical and digital assets verifiable on the blockchain.

The blockchain records NFT’s lifecycle, from its creation to the present time. This is why NFTs are usually used as a neutral confirmation of an owner in cases of theft and copying assets or digital art.

The Use of NFTs in Metaverse

NFTs and the Metaverse are a relatively new concept that will be expanding in the future. For now, people are finding many innovative ways to use and further develop their potential.

Virtual Real Estate

The Metaverse is still in the infancy stage but it has many similarities with the real world. Real estate is a thing in the virtual world where land and structures are purchased to build businesses, host events, and more.

One of NFTs’ roles is to represent real estate. Purchasing, selling or creating land in the Metaverse is done through minting NFTs that make up that land. They represent the ownership of the land.

Virtual Marketplaces

VRChats are flourishing in the Metaverse. These communication areas are an excellent space to share links, show asset previews, or immediately mint assets in the Virtual marketplaces.

More and more brands are finding the VR marketplaces appealing, and Nike is just one of the few pioneers. They started their Metaverse journey with their own virtual Nikeland, but they are not stopping there. They recently purchased a studio (RTFKT) to create NFTs of items.

Art World

NFTs are already mostly related to art. Why not use them to create art galleries where users would be able to study art more closely in a relaxed environment. This is not a marketplace because only one asset is offered at non-negotiable prices. Crypto Voxels is a Metaverse powered by the Ethereum blockchain where one may find NFT artwork. It is often used by museums and art galleries to display valuable and rare art pieces.
