Rapid advancements in technology have transformed the way people live. Believe it or not but modern tech such as block chain, Virtual Reality, NFTs, and the concept of Metaverse enabled people to rethink possibilities around them and make these unique things a part of their lifestyle. There was a time when people used to find and buy unique NFTs that offered only digital art pieces but notions have changed quickly. Now there are certain collectables such as jewelry, pets, and even vehicles that you can purchase as NFTs with their real and physical copies. So, forget about buying your favorite music and paintings, let’s talk about something more worthy and luxurious that superimposes one’s personality. Yes, it is all about costumes, diamonds, horses, and camels that are up for sale as NFTs. This seems like fiction but now it has become a reality. Amsterdam Diamond Club which is a renowned diamond NFT marketplace in Amsterdam has introduced this idea to the entire world. Based on the ERC721 (Non-Fungible Token) standard, each NFT created by this company is one of a kind in both the real and digital world. The company features an exclusive collection of diamond NFTs on its opensea.io marketplace and offers a true copy of that NFT in the form of a real diamond. This not only sounds cool but exciting too. Just imagine that diamonds that are unique and rare in the real world are also unique and rare in the digital world. You might be thinking about how this whole thing works and makes it possible for you to have a physical copy of your NFTs. Everything remains the same, the buyer needs to choose and buy a unique real item like a diamond, horse, etc. and get it with its unique NFT. This works just like any other NFT created on the Ethereum blockchain and features the buyer to have a physical copy as well. Next to Diamonds, a crazier and amazing idea is to buy a horse NFT. That’s true, now people can buy real horses with their unique NFTs. So, whether you are in the Metaverse or the Real World, your companion will always be there with you. Sustain.
