NFTs and LEDs go hand in hand. Both are contemporary futuristic technology, that can be fused together into ultra art shows, fantastic waiting rooms, or entertainment that steps outside of the traditional norms in tech and marketing. Non-fungible tokens remain a hot topic of conversation, but you aren’t alone if you aren’t quite clear on what they are. Or if they are of value to you or your business. Here is a quick but detailed look at what they are, how they work, and why you should buy NFTs.
What Are NFTs?
Just like you put a token in an arcade game so that you can play, non-fungible tokens are a token that allows access to a digital file. When you purchase an NFT, you are granted exclusive access to your digital purchase. Like artwork, some of these digital goods are one-of-a-kind, some are custom-made, and some are limited editions. Unlike most digital files, even those with secure passwords, the risk of someone hacking or gaining access to your NFT is extremely unlikely. Also, you cannot share your NFT as it is only for you.
Examples of NFTs include:
- A work of art
- Motion graphics
- Video games
- Trading cards
- Access to member’s only clubs
- And more!
How Is Access Exclusive?
Digital files are nothing new, but by utilizing blockchain technology—the art or file is only shared with the person who made the purchase. Blockchain technology is most often referenced when speaking of cryptocurrency. When used for crypto, it is to create a decentralized globalized currency. When used for NFTs, it’s to create an ultra-secure place to sell digital goods, while tracking who has access to the file. Even after you purchase the file, you can’t just share or give it to someone else. However, you can sell it when and if you want to.
This provides artists and other content creators with the confidence that their art and digital goods are not stolen—which occurs frequently on the web.
Why You Should Buy NFTs and LEDs?
There are a variety of reasons to buy NFTs, and a lot of confusion. For example, you may have heard of some pieces of NFT artwork selling for millions of dollars. Just like any work of art, an NFT’s investment potential comes with risks. Some artists are on-trend, such as the Bored Ape Yacht Club designs that currently features over 10,000 apes. Some designers are up and coming, so there is no way to guarantee that it will increase in value.
Beyond investment potential, purchasing NFTs supports global artists and provides you with unique décor for your home or business. It’s also a super modern form of art and interior design. NFT’s and LED’s can go hand in hand. If your business offers a modern approach to art, there is nothing more contemporary at the moment than to feature NFT’s on LED Screens. Display all your NFT’s on a monitor, or if you are an artist offer scrolling NFT’s on LED’s to offer your potential customers a sneak peak into your art. If you’re selling, displaying your NFTs and LEDs together is a contemporary method of marketing used to acquisition sales.
Where To Buy And Sell NFTs?
Some NFT artists have websites that feature their products, but you must make your purchase through a site that supports NFT blockchain technology. However, you may be able to buy branded swag, such as t-shirts and caps, on the NFT artist’s website.
You have countless options to choose from including OpenSea, Rarible, SuperRare, Nifty Gateway, Blackdove, and more. Some sites have curated collections while the largest (OpenSea) has a mix of everything. OpenSea is considered the Amazon of NFT, with over $13 billion in global sales. These sites are also where you will go if you want to resell your non-fungible token.
You’ll make your purchase through the secure NFT wallets provided by the site you purchase from. These wallets work in a similar manner to Google Pay and other digital wallets, but they are only for NFTs. The added bonus is that they track the ownership of each NFT to ensure it’s in the right hands.
How To Display Your NFT Art?
Now you know why you should buy NFTs—what’s next? Just like all art, you need to find the ideal place to display it. Unlike many pieces of art, many NFTs can be displayed in a variety of sizes. This gives you the freedom and flexibility to put it where it works—and move it as needed. For example, you can display it on a screen as small as a notebook or as large as an oversized flat screen TV.
You can invest in an NFT framed display, but that won’t always work for your purchases. Maybe you can’t find a display the size you want or in a design aesthetic that works for you. The benefit of designated NFT displays is that they connect to NFT wallets. This allows you to quickly and easily display your art. Some are even touchscreen capable. Just make sure that the display you purchase works with your NFT wallet.
You can also post your NFT to a smart TV or custom-built LED. Those that don’t connect to an NFT wallet, need to be uploaded via a third-party app. To ensure a compliant verification process, you can use the Blackdove app.
What Is The Blackdove App?
Blackdove is an NFT marketplace, but they also offer a variety of essential NFT products—including the Blackdove app. The Blackdove app empowers you to connect to a MetaMask wallet to securely import art from most NFT marketplaces. This way you can purchase a smart TV or have an LED screen custom-built to post your NFT art.
Why Post Your NFT To A Custom Built LED Display?
While NFT frames come in a variety of sizes and designs, your options are limited. With a custom-built display, your options are endless. The display can be any size you like, from small to billboard. Again, keep in mind that not all NFTs will display with clarity on oversized displays—so keep that in mind.
Your display will be high definition and multi-purpose, as you can also use it as signage. Another advantage is that it can be built for either interior or exterior placement. The display itself comes with a standard black frame, but a custom frame and mount can be built to match your design aesthetic.
