I understand what an NFT is

I understand what an NFT is. I really do. I know that it goes on or in or through the blockchain, which is another thing that I understand. I conducted an extensive literature review, digging deep into works such as “NFTs for dummies” to “So, you’re confused about NFTs” to “NFTS: a simple explanation,” so I obviously get it now. I can tell you with great ease that NFT stands for “non-fungible token.” The “non” part is a prefix that means not. The “fungible” part is not related to mushrooms and means interchangeable. The “token” part—well, “token” has a whole mess of definitions, but it’s basically just a thing, you know? There you have it, clear as day.
