Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are a type of digital asset.

What are NFTs?

Non-fungible tokens are a type of digital asset. They are unique and can’t be replaced by another token. These tokens are also scarce by design, which means that there will never be more than one token.

NFTs can represent anything from tickets to gaming items like weapons, clothes, or even other NFTs. 

NFTs can simulate ownership of anything you want! But knowing where to start is hard. This guide will show you what NFTs are, why they’re important, how NFTs work, and how to create your own assets with the ERC-721 standard. 

So whether you're looking for something new in games or just want to know more about this new technology, keep reading below to find all the information you need.


Why Non-Fungible Tokens Matter

NFTs can help solve many aspects of the digital gaming industry that were once thought to be unsolvable. First and foremost, they offer gamers true ownership of their digital assets. Gamers can trade assets with one another without worrying about fraud or piracy.

For game developers, NFTs offer an easy way for players to buy and sell in-game items on the blockchain. It's also easier for game developers to monitor how often an item is used or traded by their users so they can better understand player behavior and make games accordingly.

How do Non-Fungible Tokens Work?

The idea of NFTs is to make something unique. That means there will never be two tokens that are exactly alike. It's not like Bitcoin or any other currency, which all have the same value.

NFTs work in a similar way to contracts, but instead of code, they use metadata and data about how it works. So, every token is only available once and has its own set of rules.

There are many different types of tokens: some can represent ownership or even contain digital art! The most popular NFTs currently are CryptoKitties, which we'll talk more about later in this post.


Creating your Own Assets

The ERC-721 standard allows you to create your own tokens. You can use these tokens to represent anything from tickets to gaming items like weapons, clothes, or even other NFTs.

The first step is defining what you want your token to represent. After that, it's time for coding and deployment:

You'll first create a smart contract and upload it on Ethereum. You can then deploy the contract with all the information you've gathered so far through the interface—whether that's by using the command line or the GUI (Graphical User Interface).

The next step is finishing up your token. This includes giving it an ID number, adding its image and text that appears on the blockchain, and finally transferring ownership of it.

Now that you've created your token, let's talk about how they work!


Create a whitelist of individuals who can buy and/or sell your token


You need to create a whitelist of individuals who can buy and/or sell your token. You will want to include trusted people, like friends or family members, so they can help you distribute your NFT.

NFTs are not fungible tokens (i.e., they don't take the place of other tokens), which means you'll need extra care in the way you distribute them. You can't just give them away, or give someone permission to buy and sell any NFT that comes into their hands.

This is because there's an inherent risk that someone could steal your token by copying it if it's not properly secured with a whitelist of authorized individuals. This is why it's important to only list the people you trust who are knowledgeable about NFTs as buyers and sellers on your token.

It's vital for investors to understand this distinction between fungible and non-fungible tokens before buying any digital asset or cryptocurrency. It could be very costly for customers if they trade non-fungible tokens with someone else without authorization!


Set the total supply of tokens

One of the most important aspects of NFTs is that they can represent anything—and that includes other NFTs.

This means that you can create NFTs that are limited in supply, which is what makes them valuable. That scarcity will lead to an increase in the price of your token.

In the crypto world, the total supply often determines how much a token or coin can be worth. In order to get a sense of how valuable your token will be, you need to set the total supply before it's distributed.

The total supply is set using a number called "minting." This number determines how many tokens exist at any given time and how many more new tokens will be created in the future. You'll also use this number to determine how many tokens you want to sell during a certain period of time.

You may want to run a pre-sale, for example, where 20% of your tokens are available for purchase from day one and then 10% each month until all 100% have been sold. The only thing you have to do is enter the "minting" percentage--in this case, 20%.


Create methods for transferring tokens to new owners, methods for buying and selling them, and methods for how long they last before they expire. 

NFTs are designed to be non-fungible by design, so they can never be replaced by another token. This means that there will never be more than one token for any given thing.

But how do you get started with NFTs? The first step is to find out your goal for creating these tokens. For example, some people create them to represent game items like weapons, clothes, or even other types of NFTs.

The next step is to create methods for transferring them to new owners, methods for buying and selling them, and methods for how long they last before they expire. These are all things you need to think about when designing your system of NFTs!
