NFT or non-fungible tokens are becoming very popular among the digerati recently, having artwork, music, tweets, and other content selling for millions of dollars in most cases. But all the Ellen DeGeneres fans are not irrationally exuberant about this hype. Her first NFT token sale got a net total of $30,955. Using NFTs, people can buy or sell digital assets that are certified through blockchain-based technology.
