What is an NFT?

An NFT (or non-fungible token if you’re fancy) is a piece of digital content that is stored on the blockchain (a digital ledger). This content can take the form of digital artwork, photos, video and more. We’re selecting certain, special in-game sneakers and assets to offer as NFTs in the Aglet shop that you’ll be able to buy, sell and trade both in our Marketplace and in outside marketplaces. For more on what you can do with Aglet NFTs (and when) check out our 2022 NFT roadmap here: - https://medium.com/agletapp/aglet-nft-roadmap-6de1a4727f7b
