WazirX's NFT Marketplace

WazirX will now allow the content creators in India to place digital assets – audio/video, art pieces, animated GIFs and tweets, and all intellectual properties for the auction and earn royalties on them.

Once an NFT is created and sold, then it becomes a unique asset for the buyer and cannot be copied – the ownership of the asset will be tracked with the help of Blockchain.

NFT builds on blockchain that allows smart contracts, and the fee has to be paid to the miners for the computer power used to verify the transactions.
