Blockchain provides a sophisticated decentralized system for storing and authenticating a wide variety of valuable items — not just cash, but works of art, intellectual property, contract rights, real estate records, and virtually any other tangible or intangible items capable of being owned.
For example, in the last few years, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have started to transform the world of digital art and other fields where value can be captured by enabling owners of digital properties to prove ownership of a unique work, or of one in a limited series of works.
Reportedly, the first NFT was created on May 3, 2014, by Kevin McCoy and Anil Dash, live at the Seven on Seven conference at the New Museum in New York City.
