About NFT

NFT is a digital asset that represents real-world objects like art, music, in-game items, and videos. It can be bought and sold online with cryptocurrency and NFT is stored on a blockchain. The blockchain lends the digital asset a unique identity, therefore making it not interchangeable. Painting, game, music album, collectible sports cards, or even a meme can be converted into an NFT.

It works online and once an NFT sells, the creator receives an amount in cryptocurrency. He/She also receives a commission on each subsequent sale of the NFT. However, there are some differences between cryptocurrency and NFT. NFT is unique and hence cannot be exchanged with another item. NFTs cannot be broken down in the same as it does in Bitcoin. 

Other celebrities that have ventured into NFTs include comedian Ellen Degeneres, rapper Snoop Dogg, singers Lewis Capaldi and Shawn Mendes, actresses Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, among others. 

Arun Pandey’s Rhiti Group is a talent management company with expertise in sports marketing and celebrity management. He added that the biggest motivation behind the venture is to “empower artists, celebrities, and athletes globally and at the same time, help the diehard fans to get their hands over the purest form of the content.”
