What are NFTs?

NFTs are simply digital assets on a network called the blockchain. You may see them as JPEGs that wealthy people purchase because they have extra cash to burn. However, you’ll be surprised with the several utilities they have.

NFTs are often referred to as digital tokens and can be used to represent a collection of real world and digital assets that have been created through software and applications. They are intended to be used in the virtual estate business, in the creation of communities , in furthering fashion and might even influence the music you so deeply care about.

If you have knowledge of the most recent market patterns and the necessary tools to interpret future projections, investing in and trading in NFTs is simple.

With the use of the right NFT analytics tools, even beginners can get started.

How to Trade NFTs (profitably)

The NFT space doesn’t use the fiat currencies you are used to. You will need to set up a digital wallet and sign up on marketplaces like OpenSea.  A lot of new marketplaces keep coming up in the space and the drama they generate keeps the NFT audience addicted to Twitter.

Don’t worry, digital wallets are (usually) very secure and setting one up is not very hard. Once you have got that down, you can start on your lookout for a profitable NFT, an NFT that might just be the next Cryptopunks.

DYOR, which stands for 'Do your own research' is a term frequently thrown around in this space.

To trade NFTs, you might want to start by creating your own analysis.

The first step is to understand the market and its current trends. Twitter is the best platform for the same, but there are a variety of other platforms that do the job. There are two types of analysis you can conduct - fundamental and technical analysis.

In fundamental analysis, we examine the variables that influence an asset's price over time. Technical analysis examines patterns in the data that depict prevailing patterns of demand and supply for the asset's token or for other asset classes; these patterns may evolve over time.

As mentioned in the previous article, in order for NFT trading to be profitable, you must find an opportunity where there is low supply coupled with high demand. Here are some important tips from us:

  1. Invest, but do not empty your pockets. It’s better to start with a small amount and add money as needed. In the event that something goes wrong, you don't want to be facing a big loss.
  2. Pick a platform that doesn’t eat away a huge chunk of the money you’ve reserved for the NFT. Some platforms have made royalties optional, so make sure you look into royalty fee and the NFT licensing.
  3. Last but not least, keep in mind that human mistake poses the greatest risk in NFT trading. The only thing anyone can do if they make a trading error is to hope that the price will rise once more. Now even novice traders can make winning trades using automated bots and other trading tools.

While its not very hard to start off, you must stay on top of trends to know what trades to make. With changes to the underlying Ethereum network and with security organizations like the SEC looking into NFTs, the space can change overnight and it might affect the NFTs you are looking into.

Regardless of whether you want to generate passive income from NFT or switching to virtual estates  because you're sick of actual estates (which is completely understandable) it's critical to DYOR before investing in an NFT project. WAGMI.
