NFTs and Dubai Market
Just a quick understanding of what NFTs are and what do they mean. NFT stands for ‘non-fungible token’. Non-fungible means that something is unique and is irreplaceable. NFTs are contrary to physical money and cryptocurrencies which are fungible meaning they can be traded or exchanged for one another. NFTs are cryptographic assets on a blockchain with a unique identification code and metadata that distinguish them from each other. To sum up NFTs are digital assets that are unique and cannot be copied or exchanged for something else of equal value. They are often used as a form of digital collectible, with some of the most popular NFTs being items from the Gaming, Handicrafts and Art Industries.
NFTs can be traded and exchanged for money, cryptocurrencies, or other NFTs. It all depends on the value of the market, and upon the owners who have placed them. For instance, you could use an exchange to create a token for an image of an Apple or any Vegetable. Very many individuals might pay millions for the NFT, while others might think it worthless. To be clear that Cryptocurrencies are tokens as well; however, the key difference is that two cryptocurrencies from the same blockchain are interchangeable i.e. they are fungible. Two NFTs from the same blockchain can look identical, but they are not interchangeable.
The NFT and Dubai Market are still relatively new, but the potential for vertical growth is there. In Dubai, NFTs are beginning to gain traction. The city-state is already home to a number of blockchain companies & entrepreneurs, and the Dubai authorities are looking to leverage the technology to further achieve its goals. For example, the Dubai Blockchain Strategy aims to make Dubai the blockchain capital of the entire Global.
NFTs have the potential to be used in a variety of ways in Dubai. For example, they could be used to facilitate the buying and selling of real estate, to enable digital asset trading, digital gaming sales or to enable digital art sales. In addition, the Dubai government has also been looking into the potential use of NFTs to enable digital passports and secure government contracts. The potential for both the NFTs and the Dubai Market is enormous and their potential is only beginning to be explored. With the right infrastructure in place, NFTs could revolutionize the way of doing business in Dubai, and could present a great opportunity for those looking to invest in various verticals.
Dubai offers a license for the NFT’s E-Marketplace Provider which is a firm that is engaged in providing an online platform for the buying & selling of third parties’ unique digital assets, NFTs; and facilitates commercial interactions between buyer and seller in return of a commission or brokerage fee. The online platform cannot be used to trade or promote crypto-commodities, cryptocurrencies or NFTs covering any regulated products or securities.
