What is an NFT?
NFT is a way of registering (tokenising) a single digital, original object on a blockchain to create a permanent proof of ownership. The owner of the token is the sole registered owner of the original piece.
Angelo Galasso are linking the digital proof of ownership of the digital artwork to a limited series physical exclusive fashion item creating a symbiotic relationship between a digital and physical product, digital twin authenticating each others.
