What Is a Crypto-collectible?
A crypto-collectible is a one-of-a-kind non-fungible digital asset. Like cryptocurrencies, crypto-collectibles are limited in quantity and powered by blockchain technology. But unlike cryptocurrencies, each crypto-collectable is provably unique.
Crypto-collectible assets can be designed in any number of ways. Some crypto-collectibles are computer generated works of art. Others are digital pets that you can design and customize. Each individual token has unique variations that can’t be replicated.
Hundreds of crypto-collectibles are popping up all across the internet. If you know of any new crypto-collectible projects or existing ones that we missed, drop us a line in the comments section below and we’ll add it to our list.
