Non-fungible tokens or NFTs have literally taken the world by storm. Be it artists, celebrities or even sportspersons, no one has been left untouched by the NFT craze. Unique digital assets in the form of images, audios, GIFs, 3D models, videos and much more are being launched, bought and sold on various NFT platforms.

NFTs are fast becoming popular as a tool for artists and creators to secure their art and rare collectibles.
