A blockchain, for those unfamiliar with digital assets, is a digital ledger of transactions that is copied, encrypted, and distributed throughout a network. This means that all transactions are safe and do not require the intervention of a third party.
Google users are predominantly searching for “NFT” while “crypto” is no longer the most demanded term. Thousands of people are bidding on the artefacts, and some are even selling for millions of dollars. Companies ranging from beverage labels Pepsi and Coca-cola to athletic conglomerates Nike and Adidas are racing to interact with and market to consumers in the nascent digital realm.
