What Are Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT)?

Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are unique digital items that cannot be divided or replicated. Each item is its own distinct ERC-721 token. Most commonly, an NFT represents ownership of a physical or virtual object that cannot be broken down into smaller components and purchased individually.

  • On Decentraland’s LAND marketplace, for example, users can buy individual parcels of virtual land with MANA tokens—but it’s impossible to purchase just one plot of land in isolation.
  • Instead, users must buy all connected parcels of land at once.
  • This means that each individual piece of land comes with certain designations attached to it, including covenants about how exactly you can build on that parcel. 
  • There are many kinds of non-fungible assets out there; here are some common ones: Cryptokitties: CryptoKitties let users collect and breed unique cats based on their genetic attributes (color, fur pattern).
  • The game isn’t too different from standard collectibles like baseball cards, but since each cat is represented by a unique Ethereum address, they’re also tradeable on a blockchain—meaning collectors could potentially turn profits by breeding their cats and then selling them to other players.

How Do I Choose a Good NFT Image?

When you decide to make an NFT your Twitter profile picture, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind.

  • First of all, remember that it’s only going on your personal account, so it doesn’t have to be one of those ultra-high resolution masterpieces you’ve been working on for months.
  • To prevent yourself from obsessing over every pixel and getting downvoted by CryptoKitties fans, stick with something fairly simple that also shows off a little bit of personality.

Make sure you check out our featured Kitties page or check out other Kittehs in search mode! If you get stuck, try these clever tricks: Play around with different filters like Lomopics until you find one that makes your kitty look colorful and bright; position your kitty inside a circle using Photoshop (Command + R) to give it just enough space without taking away too much attention; leave at least some space between your kitty and the edge of its square image.

This can be a little tricky for those new to changing an account’s photo. It is possible, though.

But first things first: Be sure you have access rights to that piece of crypto art. If it’s NFT-related and you bought it, you should be able to change its owner (see below).

  1. If not, make sure there aren’t any restrictions on its use — such restrictions are often part of blockchain or game parameters.
  2. Once that’s settled, try following these steps Open up your settings page by tapping your avatar in the upper right corner.
  3. Tap edit profile at top right. Type out what you want your username to say, then tap next. Switch over to setting page 2 by tapping setting page 2 at bottom left (your name will still appear, but underneath it will read Settings Page 2).
  4. Tap change picture at top left of section 1 About Me. You'll see upload options underneath your avatar where all users normally upload their photos; now choose one from which you want to pick an image to become your new Twitter profile pic! 

IMPORTANT NOTE: make sure you're viewing metadata under general public license when uploading pics; otherwise they might have copyrighted restrictions!
