NFTs are something making headlines on a daily basis, however for some they are still an enigma; but something worth knowing as the WEB3 space will end up being a huge part of our lives and the concept of a digital word is becoming more of a reality as each day goes by. So what is a NFT? It is a digital asset that can represent real-world objects like art, music, images, videos or other commodities; but really what that means is it is something that you actually own in the digital world and the NFT is a receipt of this. They are bought and sold online and encoded with the same underlying software as cryptocurrencies. Although they’ve been around since 2014, NFTs are gaining notoriety now because they are becoming an increasingly popular way to buy and sell digital artwork. The market for NFTs was worth a staggering $41 billion in 2021 alone and in 2022 have exceeded the total value of the entire global fine art market.
So, how do you learn more about this multi-billion dollar industry? There are a lot of online courses and areas where you can learn about NFTs if you want to delve down the rabbit hole or even spend a few hours researching and watching YouTube and although nothing is as good as knowledge you’ve sought out yourself, one company has made things simple and put everything in one place.
Most courses, especially free ones expect you to sign up or provide an email or try and up-sell you constantly however, this course simply as one video at the end promoting their new NFT collection Beastlike, but the course itself is entirely free requiring no sign ups or up-sells which we thought in this day and age was pretty damn special, guess you sometimes still can get a free lunch, so to speak.
This course is well-thought-out and covers the basics of what are NFTs, how to buy them, how to sell them and how to set up the types of accounts and different programs you’ll need in order to be active in this space. But despite it being made by Flash NFT a company that sells NFTs this course even shows you how to make your own. According to their website the reason they’ve released this course is “to make WEB3 and NFTs available to everyone” and “by providing knowledge we are trying to make the world a bit of a better place”. The course obviously doesn’t cover everything, however for a free course this is something 100% worth looking into.
If you are looking to learn more head to their website www.flashnft.net and have a look at the free course, even if it may not cover every base, it is a great resource and something that you can build upon to learn more about this exciting industry.
