You might wonder why Cryptonomist became interested in Matteo Mauro. Because he announced that he will start to tokenize the artworks of his collectors using Ethereum-based Non Fungible Tokens (NFT).
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that ensures that digital asset is unique and not interchangeable. NFT can be used to symbolize photos, videos, audio, and other varieties of digital files. Access to copies of the original file is not limited only to the buyer of the NFT. Copies of these digital commodities are available for anyone to acquire, and NFTs are tracked on blockchains to give the owner proof of ownership.
Matteo explained the move with these words; “This need stems from the demand of our collectors, who were the first to ask us to tokenize the artworks. As a result, we decided to offer this possibility at a symbolic price to all our historical buyers. In addition, to celebrate the beginning of this process, we decided to give each of them a first NFT limited edition,”
