my art as NFTs

Non Fungible Tokens

Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are cryptographic assets on a blockchain with unique identification codes and metadata that distinguish them from each other.  This differs from fungible tokens like cryptocurrencies, which are identical to each other and, therefore, can be used as a medium for commercial transactions.

If you buy an NFT artwork you are purchasing a token on the Ethereum blockchain uniquely associated with a digital artwork, which proves the authenticity and provenance of the artwork.  Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are unique digital items stored on the blockchain where ownership can be tracked and verified. NFTs may come in the form of JPGs, GIFS, audio files, or any other digital file type. 

Who owns the copyright of an NFT? 

When an artist creates an artwork, whether it is physical or digital, the artist retains the copyright to their work even after the work is sold.  This is the rule under copyright law and standard practice in the traditional art world.  Unless a different agreement is made between artist and buyer at the time of sale, the owner of a piece of art has the right to sell and publicly display their artwork, but the artist, not the collector, holds the rights to reproduce for commercial purposes and make other commercial uses of the work.  The collector may print out copies of their NFT for personal use.
