I love art but I am no artist (yet). As a tech lawyer, I am curious why NFTs are popular among many talented people in art and gaming (and not only). What are they and how do NFTs innovate? Is the NFT-market regulated? And what legal headaches do NFTs bring with them? Do NFTs run on smart contracts and, if yes, how do these contracts work; does the blockchain technology play any role in it? Do these digital assets really stimulate growth and trigger the creation of new tech solutions?
