NFT走红:数字收藏品,也被称为不可替代代币(NFT),突然间成为科技界的话题。他们已经存在了几年,但在最近几周有了发展。音乐明星格里姆斯soldabout $6 million worth of digital art earlier this week. The NBA’s new顶杆交易卡有generated过去一个月的销售额为2.3亿美元。

工作原理:非功能性测试使用区块链技术——类似于bitcoin — that tracks ownership of unique digital assets such as art, sports highlights, songs, and more. People can own verified, limited edition digital assets and buy, sell, or trade them on marketplaces. NFTs tap into the same interests and habits of traditional collectors, but in a modern version. It’s based on the idea of digital scarcity — a new take on trading and collecting baseball or Pokémon cards, for example.

重要时刻Dapper Labs:The Vancouver, B.C. startup is partnering with the NBA to run the infrastructure for Top Shot via Flow, its blockchain product that also powers the popular加密猫数字收藏品。

“We always knew that there would be interest in NBA Top Shot, but just five months since our public beta launch, NBA Top Shot has exceeded our expectations — emerging as the fastest growing marketplace in history,” said Caty Tedman, head of partnerships and marketing for Dapper Labs.

泰德曼说,Dapper实验室正在与体育、娱乐和游戏领域的主要品牌洽谈,以开发类似的产品。“这只是个开始,”她说。

The 4-year-old company, which employs under 100 people, isreportedlyset to raise a $250 million round at a $2 billion valuation. Total funding to date is $80 million. Investors include Andreessen Horowitz; Warner Music Group; Union Square Ventures; Version One; and others. Dapper is led byRoham Gharegozlou, the former CEO at Axiom Zen.

下一步:Here’s a prediction from Chris Dixon,Andreessen Horowitz普通合伙人:

“NFT仍处于早期阶段,并将不断发展。它们的效用将随着围绕它们构建的数字体验而增加,包括市场、社交网络、展示柜、游戏和虚拟世界。其他面向消费者的加密产品也很可能与NFT结合出现。像Fortnite这样的现代电子游戏包含着复杂的经济体,它们将V-buck之类的可替代代币与nft/皮肤之类的虚拟商品混合在一起。有一天,每个互联网社区都可能拥有自己的微观经济,包括NFT和用户可以使用、拥有和收集的可替代代币。”
