What is an NFT

Wikipedia explains NFT as “A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable.[1] NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files. Access to any copy of the original file, however, is not restricted to the buyer of the NFT. While copies of these digital items are available for anyone to obtain, NFTs are tracked on blockchains to provide the owner with proof of ownership that is separate from copyright.

In 2021, there has been increased interest in using NFTs. Blockchains like Ethereum, Flow, and Tezos have their own standards when it comes to supporting NFTs, but each works to ensure that the digital item represented is authentically one-of-a-kind. NFTs are now being used to commodify digital assets in art, music, sports, and other popular entertainment. Most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain; however, other blockchains can implement their own versions of NFTs. The NFT market value tripled in 2020, reaching more than $250 million.”

Other NFT cigars

United Cigars, the cigar company of Dave Garofalo from 2 guys smoke shop, was the first cigar company to launch an NFT cigar. That is the Atabey Black Ritos. But that cigar is just a concept and thus not asset-backed. It might be in the future though. United Cigars sold 10 boxes plus 25 individual cigars in April of this year. 

Whether the Atabey Black Ritos will ever be a physical product is still a question mark. Back in April, Oliver Niveau of United Cigars said “The Atabey Black Ritos NFT is just a concept and not in actual production yet. or now, it’s only available to be seen and purchased on Ocean Sea.” The profits of the Atabey Black Ritos all went to the Cigar Rights of the World.
