The safest wallet for your NFTs, available as a browser extension and mobile app.
While you may have heard the term “NFTs” before, it’s understandable if you still don’t know what that means. Simply, NFTs stand for non-fungible tokens—tokens that can’t be substituted for something else. To demonstrate with an example, your $1 bill is valued the same as any other $1 bill and can be substituted for any $1 bill in the world. This makes it fungible.
A Van Gogh art painting, on the other hand, is one of a kind, and can’t be substituted for another painting by the same painter or another artist. It is non-fungible.
In Web3, an NFT proves the ownership of a non-fungible asset like digital art, credentials, badges, and more.
Now that you have an idea of what NFTs are, be mindful that they can be popular targets for scams and exploits. MetaMask works 24/7 to maintain and develop the highest Web3 security standards. A new update of MetaMask is specifically designed to counteract malicious behaviors by making permission granting clearer.
This makes it easier to know what you’re approving within the wallet so you don’t fall victim to nefarious crypto scams. If you have been compromised, learn how MetaMask can help with recovering lost crypto assets.
