Before we talk about what NFT is, let’s talk about art.

1. The Banksyruptsy Of The Girl With Balloon

You are over the phone and excited to buy this amazing painting from the most mysterious artist in the world.

You relieve yourself from $1.4 million of dollars, and you are excited about your new piece of art.

But the moment the deal is sealed, the piece of art starts shredding.

How would you feel?

That story happened at Sotheby’s on October 5th, 2018, in London, England.

The art piece is the Girl With Balloon, and the artist is the famous Banksy.

You don’t believe me?

See for yourself:

Funny story: shredding this piece of art made it even more expensive.

2. The 2 Chainz Around The Block

Imagine 2 Chainz with a block. This is the origin of the blockchain, I heard.

I see that you are a little bit confused. Watch this video:

Blockchain is the technology behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

How to describe the blockchain to my grandmother?

Nanny, imagine a giant board in the middle of your village.

Now imagine that each time you say something, it is carved on that board.
