About the module

NFTs are being used for a variety of digital art forms, such as digital paintings, 3D models, virtual world assets, music, videos, and even non-fungible tokens themselves. 

An example case of an artist using NFTs is musician 3LAU. 3LAU has been using NFTs to sell limited edition artwork, soundscapes and videos. By using a decentralised platform, 3LAU can quickly and easily turn his work into tangible commodities and ensure scarcity, which gives each item he produces a unique value. Thus, his audience is able to truly own his work, furthering his brand and giving him more control of his art.

Some other artists you might know or follow (now) using NFTs already are:

  • Digital Paintings: Kei Meguro.
  • 3D Models: Dermot Summers.
  • Virtual World Assets: Luis Scheonhoven.
  • Music: Mike Shinoda.
  • Videos: Ryan Connolly.
