Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum are digital monies that use a technology called the "Blockchain" to exist. Unlike normal money issued by banks, no single entity controls them. Instead, cryptocurrencies are run by a network of computers that verify and record all transactions.
An NFT is a special type of digital item that you truly own, which is stored, secured, and validated on the Blockchain. NFT stands for "non-fungible token," which means it's one-of-a-kind and can't be replaced with something else. Think of NFTs like unique trading cards - no two are exactly the same.
In Sipher Odyssey, players can convert some of their items into NFTs. This allows players to truly own those items instead of just in-game. By turning an item into an NFT, a player receives the original copy of that digital asset that they can keep, sell or trade - even outside our game.
