NFTs come in all shapes, sizes and colors
The NFT Awards aren’t only about digital artworks, because an NFT can be much more than that. An NFT, or non-fungible token, is a digital contract that determines the holder of that token to be the owner of something digital. What is this digital object? It can be anything!
An NFT can indeed be an artwork, but also a deed for virtual land, an avatar, game item, or a contract that details the holder’s position in a liquidity pool. It can be an invoice or a diploma, owners can redeem these NFTs for physical sneakers, or it gives them ownership over music or digital collectibles.
CryptoPunks are often seen as (one of) the first NFTs, but these didn’t use the ERC-721 token standard yet. Most non-fungible tokens are now ERC-721 tokens or an alternative version of it. These ERC-721 tokens were first introduced by the end of 2017 by Dapper Labs and their CryptoKitties project. Nowadays every blockchain uses NFTs, from Flow and Wax to Solana, and from Ethereum to Near Protocol and Binance Smart Chain.
Now the community will determine which NFT projects have made an impact this year through their votes on nftawards.org. They can vote for an artwork on the Tezos blockchain, an avatar NFT on Ethereum or perhaps a GameFi NFT on Binance Smart Chain.
