[Gate.io: For beginners] Can NFT art sell even if it’s bad?


NFT art can be said to be the most popular and distributed content in the NFT genre. When it comes to NFT art, people tend to think that it is created by a designer, but surprisingly that is not the case. In fact, there is a possibility that even a picture without drawing ability will sell.

What is NFT Art?

NFT is an abbreviation for Non-Fungible Token. NFT uses the blockchain technology used in virtual currency, and the blockchain technology has realized a mechanism that prevents data falsification, making it possible to find high asset value in digital data. NFT art was born from this.

NFT art is said to reflect NFT technology in digital art. Since digital art can be easily copied, it was said that there was no way to distinguish which was genuine, and it was difficult to attach a high value. However, as described above, we have realized a mechanism that prevents data falsification, and it has become a viable business. Many artists are now participating.

How to create NFT art?

In order to create NFT art, there are many cases where it is created digitally.


The PC is probably the most major medium for creating art. PCs are very suitable for those who are good at detailed work. In addition, older people are most accustomed to PCs, and the reality is that many people are unfamiliar with the operation of tablets and smartphones. In such a case, PC is the most recommended.


A tablet would also be a major tool. In the case of tablets, there are many younger generations. In the case of tablets, there is also a tablet that is specialized for drawing, called a pen tablet. These are for advanced users.


Once you launch the app, you can start drawing immediately without the hassle of registering an account, but the disadvantage is that the screen is small. Therefore, these tools are not recommended if you need very fine details.

When it comes to NFT art, people tend to think that it is created by a professional designer, but the reality is that even poorly made art sells surprisingly well. So why is it that even a bad painting can sell? This is for the following reasons.

This is probably about 70% of the reason why even a bad picture sells. Even if a piece made by a famous artist is of low quality, it sells very well because it is very well known. If you have influence on SNS etc., you can sell it at a high price if you sell a bad picture as NFT. This includes celebrities, the rich, and even influencers.


For those who are not famous, most of them will give you special benefits. For example, by purchasing NFTs, there are cases where other preferential acquisition rights can be obtained, and in addition to that, by giving purchasers benefits such as being able to participate in the community, there are many cases where it sells in some way. Such things are called utilities.
