What is a Non-Fungible Token (NFT)

A non-fungible token simply referred to as NFT is a unique digital/ cryptographic representation of an item such as art, music, images, etc that exists on the blockchain and cannot be duplicated. The concept of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) recently surfaced and has swept the crypto and blockchain industry like a storm.

While NFT innovation has become a popular avenue for many to make profits, it primarily helps in the certification of authenticity and ownership of digital items. Digital creators no longer have to worry about their content being copied or imitated, thanks to the emergence of NFT.

Cointelegraph Historical NFT Collection

To mark the platform's tenth-anniversary (founded in 2013), Cointelegraph has told readers to anticipate the Cointelegraph Historical NFT Collection, rolling out a waitlist for interested cryptocurrency and NFT enthusiasts to hop in.

It is worth noting that the CT historical NFT collection is to be curated by the readers. That is, readers will have to search for outstanding news or trending stories that have been published on the largest crypto news outlet. Whoever discovers, collects, and mints any article into 1/1 NFT becomes the owner of the publication.

A "COLLECT" button will be attached to every article on Cointelegraph, placed precisely under the featured image. To convert any article into an NFT, a reader only has to first click on "collect".

A new interface then pops up, redirecting you to the Checkout page to review the token details and subsequently approve the transaction in your wallet. At this point, the article becomes yours and you can decide to trade it on the NFT marketplace or create a collection of articles.

It bears mentioning that you can mint as many articles as possible to build your unique historical collection.
