Non-Fungible Token (NFT): Overview, Evaluation, Opportunities and Challenges

  title={Non-Fungible Token (NFT): Overview, Evaluation, Opportunities and Challenges},
  author={Qin Wang and Rujia Li and Qi Wang and Shiping Chen},
. The Non-Fungible Token (NFT) market is mushrooming in the recent couple of years. The concept of NFT originally comes from a token standard of Ethereum, aiming to distinguish each token with dis-tinguishable signs. This type of tokens can be bound with virtual/digital properties as their unique identifications. With NFTs, all marked properties can be freely traded with customized values according to their ages, rarity, liquidity, etc. It has greatly stimulated the prosperity of the…
