We all have heard about the cryptocurrency boom which took the world by surprise in the past few years, and NFT comes as the next rage that has brought people in awe. A large section of the population is already better informed about NFTs and their usefulness in terms of the NFT trade. The ability to trade in NFTs has made people realize that NFTs can serve as an alternative way of asset keep, compared to traditional ways like real-estates and shares.
What is NFT?
An NFT or Non-Fungible Token is a unique type of secured token, owned by a single entity and can’t be substituted. An NFT can represent almost anything in the real world, right from cars, real estate, music, art pieces, or some in-game virtual assets that are not interchangeable. NFTs are such digital assets that can be traded like any other real-world asset like cars or properties, minus any sort of maintenance, as they do not have tangible forms of their own.
Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) have taken the digitization of assets to unimaginable levels and lately, banks and other financial institutions have been looking forward to ways how to utilize NFTs. Till now NFT solutions were limited to individual use cases, but ever wondered how banking and financial organizations can get benefited from this?
The article below will explain what are the prime use cases of NFT for the banking sector and how financial institutions are looking forward to leveraging it.
How banking sector can utilize NFTs?
The asset and wealth management sector have already looked into physical collectibles, particularly those been in high value like bullion and real estate as a part of the client’s portfolio. Now with the advancement in the technological field, banks have been exploring possibilities in chalking out the worth of digital collectibles like NFTs. It is Metaverse at which banks have been looking out to explore the real-world assets which can be bought and sold as a medium of NFTs.
The benefits NFTs offer to the banking and financial sector
- NFTs being backed by blockchain platforms, let banks record the details of the digital assets of owners before transfer so that they can be protected from potential fraud or loss. In this way, financial institutions like banks can smoothly deal with the challenges which come while dealing with secured sensitive data.
- In case there is a royalty-related payment then, banks can track regarding who owns the asset and effectively know if there is any lapse in payment and rectify the same in minutes.
- There have been instances of people not trusting cryptocurrencies due to their volatile nature, and NFTs can help banks in bringing such investors into the pool.
- Banks and Fintech can exploit NFTs in the same way as one sells collectible assets like expensive watches, fine wines, or gemstones.
The integration of NFTs into social media through Metaverse can be a deciding factor regarding how the banking sector will grab this opportunity. The rise of NFTs won’t be anything like people spending a large amount of money to buy a rare NFT like Apple watches or digital wearables symbolizing status symbols. A senior NFT developer from Rejolut says that, since DeFi (Decentralized Finance) has effectively able to unlock the value of NFTs, we are hopeful that the banking sector would even embrace and adopt the concept of Yield Farming in the future, but subject to government regulations.
