Personal Bit: Old Man Learns New Trick Called NFT

June 23, 2021

When I was younger, I was told over and over again that old dogs can’t learn new tricks. I am 51 years old now and I have learned to make an NFT.
what is an NFT? NFT stands for non-fungible token. It is basically a picture that has been transformed into a virtual picture. It is usually bought with cryptocurrency and for some reason, the cryptocurrency of choice to buy it is Ethereum.
You can create an NFT on websites like OpenSea and Mintable. On OpenSea, you can create the NFT for free. You simply go to My Collections on your dashboard and a window pops up that says that you have to upload a picture. You upload a picture. You are also expected the new NFT a name and a description. You click to add it to your collection and you are then finished in creating an NFT.
Before creating an NFT, you should know that you have an Ethereum wallet. All NFT websites require that you have an Ethereum. Each NFT website gives you the choice of what wallet website that you can use.
I first heard about NFTs when I watched a news story on PBS Newshour. Some man had sold his NFT collection for millions of dollars. Another YouTube story said that a girl had been half a million US dollars for a viral picture that she appeared in. I don’t know what is going to happen to my NFT.
This is my NFT:

I don’t if it will light up the world, but I can say that I am an old who learned a new trick.
