This chunk of data includes specific rights such as who it was created by & who it currently belongs to. Fungible means mutually interchangeable.

By allowing users to buy songs as NFT’s they will profit from artists as they succeed. Quin partnered with Coach to create a holiday drop of NFT’s.

NFL All Day released NFT’s attached to ticketed seats as memorabilia and open to be used on the secondary market. Adidas is launching their own NFT’s, 30,000 units, where they provide early access to 20,000 owners for a clothing drop and only access to 10,000 public customers. The Button’s created an NFT related to OSU students to be added to their Ethereum wallets. They advise to learn more about the NFT technology because we are in the early phases. They believe the NFT space will lose a lot of participants in the next five years but those that stay will be greatly rewarded.
