NFTs, explained

I started this week with a mission: I wanted an answer to WTF it is with NFT that are suddenly everywhere? For when a cat gif sells for $580000, something interesting and/or crazy is happening.

I still haven’t quite wrapped my head around all of it, but this piece from The Verge serves as a good (and entertaining) primer.
