NFTs for Photographers

If you’re a photographer and you’re reading this article, chances are you have already heard about NFTs or have at least seen the buzz around them. As I write this, there are over 1,000 cryptocurrencies listed on CoinMarketCap — hundreds of which are being used as tokens for various types of digital assets. There are companies creating everything from collectible digital pets to digital art that can be stored on the blockchain and sold with no middleman in between buyer and seller. The possibilities for these new kinds of fundraising projects and online marketplaces have already started attracting major players like Adobe, who recently launched an Adobe Spark project called “Unpossible: A Game for Digital Artists” which aims to bring together creators from all over the world by providing them with a platform through which they can publish their work and earn royalties based on how many people view it while also providing users with a way to purchase NFTs directly from artists rather than having to go through intermediaries such as marketplaces like SuperRare or Rarebits — all while using blockchain technology!

The Basics
NFTs are digital assets that can be transferred, traded, or collected. They’re also sometimes called “non-fungible tokens.” That’s because each NFT is unique and represents a specific object.

NFTs are often used in video games where players can collect items like weapons or clothing that have special abilities. These assets have real-world value and can be sold on an online marketplace (like eBay) for money.

NFTs store information about an item’s history on a blockchain—a type of distributed database technology originally built to support cryptocurrency transactions—and each transaction creates another entry on this chain with new information about who owns the item at any given time. This allows owners to prove that they own specific items without having to worry about losing them because it would require someone else knowing how many times someone has traded them before today!

Artists also have to make a deal with the buyer to license their work for commercial use
You also have to make a deal with the buyer to license your work for commercial use. For example, if you sell a digital print of one of your photographs, then the buyer must purchase the right to use it in any way they wish. The owner must be allowed to do this without paying you extra money (though they may still pay you licensing fees).

Your goal is not only to sell art but also to license it so that other people can use it and profit from it as well. This means that you should get paid every time someone uses one of your images on merchandise or within an advertisement or web page design.

The world has changed and is still changing, and photographers need to be ready. As more photographers start exploring the possibilities offered by blockchain technology, they will find themselves with more options and greater freedom in how they control their work. With that being said, there are many factors worth considering before venturing into this exciting new field — but don’t let that stop you from trying!
