Creating NFTs on Algorand:
Algorand’s foundational technology is intentionally designed to support and include all asset types for the future of finance - including Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). We believe in the long-term value that NFT’s will bring in a new era of digital assets, and are committed to ensuring their success in the creation, management and participation in this digital economy.
NFTs: a unique digital asset with on-chain representation of ownership and identification of its authenticity that include assets where the value is embedded in the data of the NFT, external to the NFT (in-game items), or with an off chain asset (real estate or IP rights). We believe in the valuable characteristics of NFTs that include:
An NFT on a network that is decentralized by design provides certainty of that blockchain’s future. Without it, an NFT is at the risk of the blockchain not enduring over time, a risk that can impact the overall value of an NFT.
All transactions on Algorand are final in mere seconds, removing any uncertainty in the settlement process of NFTs, and allowing for the performance and scale needed for successful minting.
A platform with low transaction fees ensures greater participation for creators, democratizing the minting, ownership, and sale of NFTs
Democratizing ownership with access to fractional ownership so an asset with a significant price tag can have shared ownership through an NFT, making high cost assets much more accessible
Algorand has been developer focused since inception; we strive to simplify and optimize the experience and functionality for our growing community of NFT creators and issuers. NFTs can be built on Algorand in a number of ways:
There are a number of core requirements for a robust NFT ecosystem. This includes exchange support, marketplace, custody, medium of exchange, tax compliance and more. The DeFi world is heavily engaged in this new economy creating a convergence between the DeFi world and the Creator World and Algorand is connecting both for a vibrant blockchain ecosystem.
A well-curated ecosystem allows for the impact of the long-term success of NFTs, leading to:
A wide range of unique NFT use-cases are unfolding in both the physical and virtual world, and for the first time creators are now empowered to sell their work directly to their fans while keeping most of the monetary value.
