3D characters and why they are so popular (NFTs)

NFT means non-fungible token, and non-fungible means it is unique – you cannot replace it. A non-fungible token (NFT) is an irreplaceable unit of data stored in a blockchain, a form of digital register. NFT data types can be associated with digital files such as photos, videos, and audio. 

NFTs have become very popular in the last year. You’ve probably heard of them more than once. They are all over the internet, and everyone is commenting on them. If you are more familiar with cryptocurrencies, you probably know more about NFTs.

If you still don’t know what NFT is or want to know more, you can read about it on our blog.

In today’s blog post, we’re going to talk about 3D characters and why they’re so popular. If you want to know more, keep reading.

What is NFT?

NFT means non-fungible token, and non-fungible means it’s unique – you cannot replace it. A non-fungible token (NFT) is an irreplaceable unit of data stored in a blockchain, a form of digital register. NFT data types can be associated with digital files such as photos, videos, and audio. 

Because each token is uniquely identified, NFTs differ from blockchain cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin. In addition, bitcoin is interchangeable, as you can trade your bitcoin for another. Eventually, you will get bitcoin in both cases. NFTs are more like collectible cards (Pokemon, Yu Gi Oh, celebrity cards, etc.) – one-of-a-kind trading tokens that, if you trade for each other, you will receive a token different from the one you gave.

NFT can be anything – jpg images, music, digital art.

NFTs are created when blockchains string records of cryptographic hash, a set of characters identifying a set of data, onto previous records, therefore, creating a chain of identifiable data blocks.

Ownership of NFT does not grant copyright. Although someone may sell an NFT representing his work, the buyer will not necessarily receive copyright privileges when the owner of the NFT is changed, and the original owner is allowed to create more NFTs on the same work. In this sense, NFT is simply proof of ownership separate from copyright.

NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs. Other blockchains can also deploy their NFT versions, so Ethereum isn’t the only one.

The main impact of NFTs is making it easy to own and sell digital content. Before, digital artists could build up a following online or work for a company that needs graphics. The other option was to print your paintings and sell them that way or work as a freelancer. However, many users do not understand why they pay for digital pictures, as they can take a screenshot for free or save them with two clicks.

Although the technology behind NFT facilitates the marketing and sale of images online, the NFT community should take advantage of the market access opportunity for these digital assets. Technical digital art that has been converted into NFTs can still be saved for free.

What are 3D NFTs?

If you look at any NFT market, you will see that an NFT can be truly anything. 3D models are also becoming more and more popular. They are well-liked by most people and are promisingly growing in the NFT markets. Additionally, they will be able to integrate into different metaverses.

As 3D models slowly become the norm for new NFT projects, marketplaces like OpenSea and Rarible have had to adapt quickly. Currently, almost every NFT market supports 3D assets, which is a big step in the NFT world moving away from 2D and towards 3D as a primary form of artistic expression.

How 3D NFTs are impacting the market?

As the next step from 2D NFTs, 3D NFTs have become a significant breakthrough in the growth of the NFT market by integrating with gaming assets, building a metaverse, and tokenizing digital manufacturing assets with NFTs for better security and privacy.

Because each non-fungible token you create is unique, it can be designed to retain value beyond the scope it was created for, be it gaming, e-commerce, or entertainment.

The future of the metaverse is closely related to 3D NFT. The metaverse is the next evolution of the internet and is currently exploding, fueled by the utility and flexibility of 3D NFTs. It is the main reason why they are so famous and widespread.

Why are 3D NFTs so popular?

As already mentioned, the main reason 3D NFTs have become so popular is the metaverse, which has gained enormous popularity in recent years. Because of it, 3D characters and VR (virtual reality) quickly became much more common.

It turns out that 3D is the ideal format for NFTs. Thanks to it, they can easily be used in the metaverse. It is the perfect format to help brands take advantage of NFT. 

One example is KIA America’s new campaign. The “actors” in the video at the heart of the campaign, developed by the David&Goliath agency, are three popular characters from the Dead Army Skeleton Klub (DASK), a group of computer-generated 3D skeletons whose NFTs can be collected and traded online. KIA America aims to engage consumers with the Kia Soul campaign with the unique offering of themed Kia DASK NFTs that viewers of the ad can get. More companies are starting to take advantage of 3D NFTs like that.

3D NFTs can be included in most metaverse-ready video games. They can also be used as digital profiles and avatars in virtual and augmented reality. Moreover, the limited number of 3D NFTs available in the market makes their intrinsic value grow steadily day by day.

Many people say that NFT is the future, while others believe it will disappear in time. No one is sure exactly how much they will develop. 

NFT can be absolutely anything – paintings, music, videos, famous memes, movies. It makes them so different from traditional art or cryptocurrencies. People like them because they are different and everyone can find something to their liking. And although everyone can see the NFT you bought, you are the only owner.
