NFT’s what all the RAVE??
We thought this was worth explaining because we're going to be talking a lot more about this in the coming years. We're taking you to South Beach to meet Amir Kaltak and Katia Zaitsev with a
company called Lexit. They know how to break it all down as you can see in the web video show.
Let's break this down. What makes an NFT art valuable?
NFTs are valuable because they verify the authenticity of a non-fungible asset. This makes these assets unique and one of a kind. Picasso's paintings are non-fungible. While anyone can make copies of his paintings, the original painting remains irreplaceable and unique.
Amir explains that the NFT is a way for young athletes, drivers and creatives can invest in themselves and more. Katia explains how teams can elevate their opportunities with NFT's and become less reliant on sponsors alone. They both shared that the Lexit model could be a game changer on several fronts.
To be clear, NFT’s are Non-fungible tokens. Now let's take a look at what that means:

Examples: cash, gold, casino chips, Bitcoin, even frequent flier points,
I lend you $20 cash; you return two $10 bills: different but the same total value. They’re fungible

They’re assets that can't be substituted - one of a kind
They have unique attributes that make it different from paintings or tickets the the game
