How to Collect NFTs on Kalamint (Tezos)
Everything you need to know about Tezos NFTs.
Tezos is a proof-of-stake blockchain – meaning that validation rights are determined based on the percentage of XTZ tokens you are staking compared to the overall network participation. This means that it is far cheaper to maintain the integrity and security of Tezos than in comparison to Proof-of-Work blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Tezos transaction gas costs are also extremely cheap and fast in comparison to other blockchains.
NFTs are defined as non-fungible tokens. A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio and other types of digital files. Tezonians for example are NFTs representing unique original artworks – the tokens can be traded, sent, received and auctioned.
