Frequently Asked Questions
What is NFT?
A Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is "the one and only digital data that cannot be replaced" and is like a digital certificate of authenticity.
NFTs use blockchain technology that can prevent fraud and tampering, and can prove "if it is genuine" and "who it belongs to".

What is a wallet address?
The wallet address is like an "address" for the blockchain and is generated automatically.
What is Ethereum?
Ethereum is a decentralized application platform with smart contract functionality (technology that can be set up to automate transactions, transfers, etc.).
The currency used on Ethereum is called ETH (Ether).
What is a gas fee?
A gas fee is a fee incurred during transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, such as purchasing an NFT, rewriting data, deleting data, and at various other times.
Why does a gas fee change?
A gas fee always fluctuates depending on the time of day and network congestion.
