From the author of the bestseller Tutto su Blockchain (Everything on Blockchain), the first book in Italy on NFTs, their applications and possible future developments.
Everything on NFTs is a comprehensive guide that enables anyone to understand and experience the extraordinary developments of Crypto art and the changes introduced, thanks to blockchain, in the artist-user relationship.
An NFT is a certificate attesting to the uniqueness, authenticity and ownership of a digital item (for example, an image, a video, a song or a simple tweet). Once it is "registered" in the blockchain through a smart contract a broker will no longer be required to certify who can use it. From that moment on, the creator of the NFT can obtain a profit from subsequent transactions: this eliminating of brokerage is the foundation of the great interest that the "NFT phenomenon" is generating among collectors and others as a possible form of investment.
Roberto Garavaglia, thanks to his many years of experience in the field of digital payments, explains also to non-experts what NFTs are, how they are created, what distribution platforms are and how to navigate this new art economy that is "programmable" through tokens.
The final section of the book focuses on the developments of NFTs outside the artistic sector: industries such as music and audiovisual, publishing, gaming and media, but also areas such as Digital Identity of items and digital marketing are possible new application frontiers.
