Are NFTs The Future Of E-Commerce?

I’m sure you’ve heard the NFT market is taking off. For example, Grimes recently sold a round of NFTs for nearly $6 million. A LeBron James highlight garnered more than $200,000. In addition to this, the band Kings of Leon is releasing a new album in the form of an NFT. Even a piece of Banksy’s artwork was turned into an NFT.

What is this recent phenomenon? “NFT” stands for “non-fungible token.” “Non-fungible” means you cannot exchange the item for another being of equal value. A $10 bill, for example, can be exchanged for two $5 bills; similarly, one bar of gold can be swapped for another bar of gold of the same size. These are examples of things that are fungible. An NFT, on the other hand, is a one-of-a-kind digital item that isn’t interchangeable.

As someone who is personally interested in the NFT space and runs an e-commerce mentoring company, I’ve been paying attention to how this tech could affect online business. I believe NFTs have the potential to disrupt online shopping, an industry expected to continue growing significantly. In e-commerce, I see NFT technology as one way to help streamline digital sales and enable lifetime product data tracking not previously possible. “eNFTs,” as I call them, could also empower a more transparent commerce ecosystem.

To further illustrate this, consider the potential use cases: From my perspective, NFTs could have the potential to replace SKUs with blockchain-based analog, as well as encourage one-of-a-kind products. The model could also support a more equitable profit-sharing system, particularly for emerging brands that are looking to establish themselves in e-commerce. Furthermore, NFTs could enable e-commerce data tracking, as users can have lifetime access to every data point across the product’s life span.MORE FOR YOUDogecoin Skyrockets To All-Time Highs Reaching $52.2 Billion Market Cap As Robinhood App Reports Outage Issues Due To Heavy Cryptocurrency TradingHow A Young Outsider Turned Failing Vimeo Into A Billion-Dollar CompanyThe Fashion Industry Is Ready For A Makeover: 4 Changes We’ll See In The Future

And I’m not the only one who thinks so. According to one Forbes article published in April, NFTs have the potential to make it “extremely easy” for users to see the entire supply chain history of a product they’ve purchased, as well as “make the entire transaction life-cycle of a product completely traceable.”

What This Could Mean For Leaders In E-Commerce

Throughout my time in the e-commerce space, I have seen almost a mirror image in the development of applications, websites and information we are seeing now in cryptocurrency, and NFTs are an extension of that. Think about how when the internet was made, we found many new and exciting ways to use it, and platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Google and many, many more were created as a result. NFTs are the “new” craze right now, but I believe they’re just the beginning. I predict we will find new and exciting ways to use them as well, whether those uses are in the art space, e-commerce, clothing and fashion, and more.

With e-commerce and cryptocurrency being such fast-moving industries, to stay ahead of the game, I encourage e-commerce brands to simply remain open to new projects and new ideas on a daily basis. From my perspective, every day, a new opportunity to stay ahead of the game and provide a better service to customers appears. Of course, there will likely be many changes and challenges along the way, one of which could be consumer adoption and educating the masses on the technology. We are also living in amazing, scary and unique times, and it can be hard to keep up with all the information. So, if you’re in e-commerce and thinking of exploring NFTs, I recommend really doing your research — and ensuring that information is from reputable sources.
