Behind the work of NFT, there must be an NFT Artist with extraordinary talent and creativity. What are NFT artists? This article will discuss in detail about NFT artists, including who are the most popular NFT artists today.
What is NFT Artist?
Just like a work of art has a creator or creator, an NFT artist is the figure of the creator of NFT’s work.
Generally, NFT artworks are in the form of photos or visual works, audio works, video works, or a combination of the three.
An NFT artist is usually an artist in the real world who converts his art into a non-fungible token so that it can be marketed on the NFT marketplace.
This is intended to add the value of rarity and uniqueness to a work of art so that it cannot be exchanged with others.
However, NFT artists can also be ordinary users who do not have the profession of an artist. This is because the benchmark for the uniqueness of NFT with works of art in the real world has a different assessment.
From this explanation, a simple conclusion can be drawn that the definition of an NFT artist is the creator of a non-fungible token.
