Developers supported by Ripple released a proposal to introduce Red-Hot NFT to XRP Ledger
Wietse Wind, the founder of XRPL Labs, a development studio backed by Ripple, announced plans to add non-fungible tokens (NFT) to the #XRP# ledger.
In a new tweet, Wind caught the attention of XRPL developers to share their thoughts on how to introduce the increasingly popular unique digital assets to XRP Ledger.
NFT has unique encryption properties, so no two are the same. Therefore, it is possible to verify the ownership and scarcity of digital goods such as collectibles, artworks, and virtual land parcels.
Irreplaceable nature of NFT makes it different from other encrypted assets
Wind pointed out that the irreplaceable nature of NFT makes it different from other encrypted assets such as XRP that can be divided and copied.
Wietse Wind also emphasized that NFT transactions on the XRP ledger will be different from NFT transactions on other blockchains such as Ethereum. He said that if a user opts in through a TrustSet transaction that lists the issuer’s account and the token code to be trusted by signing, he can only receive specific tokens from other users.
With growing interest in the rapidly expanding NFT space, Wind made his suggestion. Recently, YouTube star Logan Paul (Logan Paul) released his own NFT artwork and sold digital products worth more than $3.5 million in less than 24 hours.
