NFTs – more than just a hype

Dr. Daniel Diemers elucidates the new and somewhat complex concept of NFTs that is currently experiencing a boom. It is human nature, he posits, to collect things, and this habit extends into the digital world. The blockchain has eliminated some key differences between digital and physical art, permitting ownership certified by a token, and the interest as well as the value NFTs is rapidly growing. Its still early days yet, however, and Dr. Diemers is joined by Twobadour, one of the owners of Beeple’s Everydays: The First 5000 Days, which was purchased for $69 Million. Twobadour explains that while they would gladly have paid less for the artwork, they also would have paid more. The value of NFTs are hard to determine, as they force finances to interact with culture, artwork and artists. This is one of the benefits, claims Twobadour, as well as the fact that NFTs are more versatile than physical art in the sense that, as opposed to just being kept or flipped, they can be shared with the world. He finishes by explaining that anyone can become involved with NFTs by simply engaging with them through a field they are already familiar with.
