What are Crypto and Non-Fungible Tokens?

Non-fungible tokens are digital assets that have a unique identity and are often considered collectibles. Crypto collectibles (CDTs) are unique, cryptographically created digital assets, and include digital tokens, digital artwork, and other digital assets that can be used for exchange and acquisition (programmable money). Like any asset, crypto collectibles are maintained by the underlying technology. Like all collectible items, they may be moved or destroyed in accordance with the underlying law of their creation or transfer. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) can be used to allow for interaction with a non-fungible digital asset. For example, a buyer who purchases a CDT could request a coin on another digital asset that they are not allowed to resell.
