Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are unique digital assets verified using blockchain technology, primarily on platforms like Ethereum. Unlike cryptocurrencies, NFTs are indivisible and cannot be exchanged on a one-to-one basis, ensuring each NFT is distinct and irreplaceable, much like a physical collectible.
