What are NFTs and what does it mean to own one?

If you’re confused as to what the hell NFTs are, particularly art NFTs, here’s a new article by Alfred Steiner that pretty much walks you through and safely out of the NFT hell.

In his article, Steiner explains what NFTs are and what it means to own one. He also discusses why that meaning of ownership—which may appear novel to many—isn’t new at all when considered against the backdrop of the market for conceptual art. Steiner concludes with some observations about how NFTs may be good and bad for the art industry.
