About This Recipe
The concept of money is undergoing a major metamorphosis. Cryptocurrency, NFTs and other blockchain-led systems are decentralising how we do transactions by taking the power from banking authorities and putting it back in the hands of the people. But how does it all work? We've asked respected South African fintech entrepreneur Simon Dingle to explain the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency, with particular focus on NFTs and how they've changed the game.
What You'll Learn
‘NFTs’ was one of the most searched terms on Google in 2021, and the NFT market grew by a whopping 18,000%, from $13.7 million to $2.5 billion in sales, in the first half of 2021 alone. In December 2021, an NFT called The Merge sold for $91.8 million, making it the most expensive NFT artwork ever bought. Hate it or love it, non-fungible tokens are here to stay and they are only growing in popularity. In this recipe, Simon Dingle explains how non-fungible tokens work: NFTs explained, debunked, and demystified.
