What is NFT?

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data on a digital ledger called a blockchain, where each NFT can represent a unique digital item, and thus they are not interchangeable. NFTs can represent digital files such as art, audio, videos, items in video games and other forms of creative work.

According to Akon, the idea behind the NFT is to empower artists who are eager to capitalise and create ongoing sustainability through the execution of NFTs covering unique collaborations across music, art, photography, film/TV/animation, theatre, social impact, sports, gaming/eSports, brands, and influencers.  

Among those that received Akon included Uganda's Tourism Ambassador Eddy Kenzo.
