Demystifying NFTs: What Does NFT Mean?

NFT, or Non-Fungible Token, is a term gaining prominence in various creative realms, including photography. An NFT enables photographers to authenticate their work and establish themselves as the creator on the blockchain. It records crucial details such as the sale price, edition size, and subsequent resales along with their respective buyers. This uniqueness and immutability are made possible by blockchain technology, which meticulously tracks every transaction and ownership transfer of the image. Consequently, photographs are immortalized as distinct digital artworks.

Can I Purchase the Photo Using Traditional Currency?

Regrettably, no. Protecting a photo as an NFT is only feasible through acquisition via an NFT marketplace. This process ensures that all transactions are meticulously recorded on the blockchain, guaranteeing transparency and preserving the photographer's entitlement to commissions from subsequent resales.

Understanding Market Diversity: Why Are Photographs Available on Different Platforms?

The decision to list photographs on various NFT marketplaces stems from the unique features and considerations of each platform. For instance, the NFT marketplace "Foundation" exclusively accommodates 1/1 editions, making it ideal for high-value works. However, its utilization of the Ethereum payment method often incurs hefty fees, rendering it more suitable for premium-priced artworks.

In contrast, platforms like "Objkt" and "Exchange" offer a broader spectrum of sales options at a more economical cost. They provide greater flexibility and accessibility, making them preferable for a wider range of artworks.

While an all-encompassing NFT marketplace that accepts traditional currency would undoubtedly simplify transactions, such a platform has yet to materialize. Currently, I've opted to leverage the functionalities of "Foundation," "Objkt," and "Exchange" due to their distinct advantages and suitability for my portfolio.

Understanding Your Rights with Purchased NFT Photos

It's crucial to grasp that the photographer retains authorship of the work at all times. When you acquire an NFT, you're purchasing usage rights exclusively. The terms of use, including usage specifications and attribution requirements, are determined by the author and clearly outlined on the artwork's sales page.
Upon purchasing an NFT photo, you assume ownership. You have the liberty to collect it or list it on the same marketplace at a higher price, thereby potentially generating income. However, it's imperative to consider the author's commission rate and refrain from undervaluing the artwork. Keep in mind that once you resell the NFT photo, you relinquish ownership rights. Consequently, you forfeit the ability to utilize or claim ownership of the photo (e.g., the file). Sales outside of the NFT marketplace are strictly prohibited. Additionally, misrepresenting yourself as the author or reproducing and vending the photo without authorization is strictly forbidden.

Understanding Editions in NFT Photography

The concept of editions in NFT photography is determined by the photographer, who acts as the creator of the work. When a photo is marketed as a high-priced 1/1 edition, it signifies that the image is sold only once in its original form, typically with specific attributes such as size and design. Consequently, there are only two stakeholders: the photographer and the NFT buyer. Only the singular sold work circulates within the market.

In contrast, a 10/10 edition, for example, entails the availability of 10 identical copies of the photo for sale. Once all 10 pieces are sold, the photographer is prohibited from offering this particular version for sale again. However, purchasers of these photos retain the option to list their acquired NFTs for sale on the secondary market of the NFT platform at their discretion.

Editions featuring a higher quantity of individual items typically come with a lower price tag compared to 1/1 editions, making them more accessible to a broader range of collectors.

What Do I Need to Get Started?

Admittedly, the initial setup may seem daunting, but navigating the world of buying and selling NFT photographs becomes straightforward once you have everything in place.

First and foremost, you'll require a crypto wallet—a digital repository for storing your cryptocurrency and conducting transactions.

Remember: Safeguard your wallet's "seed phrase" by writing it down or printing it out! Under no circumstances should you disclose this phrase to anyone, even if requested!

Once your wallet is set up, you'll need to procure the requisite cryptocurrency. You can obtain these currencies through online crypto exchanges. Simply create an account, deposit fiat currency into the account, and then purchase the necessary cryptocurrency. Subsequently, transfer the acquired cryptocurrency to the corresponding wallet. With this accomplished, you can proceed to register on NFT marketplaces, where you can create an account and engage in the buying and selling of NFTs.

Understanding Cryptocurrency Conversion Rates

Cryptocurrency values are notorious for their volatility, often experiencing significant fluctuations. It's advisable to make purchases when prices are relatively low. Fortunately, cryptocurrencies can be acquired in any desired amount.

Ethereum    Solana    Tezos

Understanding Transaction Fees

All transactions conducted on blockchains are subject to what are known as "gas fees." These fees vary across different blockchains and are influenced by demand fluctuations over time. For Ethereum, gas fees are typically lower on weekdays between midnight to 4 AM (EST) or on Saturdays and Sundays from 2 AM to 3 AM (EST). The specific gas fee for a transaction is displayed within your wallet before you proceed with the transaction.

Additional fees may be incurred when minting, buying, and selling on NFT marketplaces.

Safety Guidelines

It's imperative to safeguard the login credentials and seed phrase of your wallets in a secure location. Losing access to these could result in permanent loss of your wallet and assets. NEVER share your login information or seed phrase with anyone under any circumstances!

When buying or selling NFTs, only utilize the designated NFT marketplace where the NFT is listed. Avoid falling prey to enticing offers that seem too good to be true, such as purchasing multiple NFTs as a bundle for an exorbitant sum. Be cautious of any requests to engage in transactions outside of the official marketplace.

Exercise skepticism and vigilance if contacted by individuals via email, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Refrain from clicking on any links or scanning QR codes, and only conduct transactions through the NFT marketplace—unless you're fully confident in your understanding and expertise.
