What are NFTs?

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are units of data, such as images, music, and GIFs, that are stored on the blockchain. Non-fungible means that each NFT is unique and cannot be replaced.

When something is fungible, it is interchangeable - it can be replaced by another identical item. Let’s take two decks of playing cards, for example. If the design is the same, you can exchange the Queen of Hearts from one deck to another without anyone noticing.

With non-fungible items, however, such as the Mona Lisa, you can’t exchange it with another identical Mona Lisa. Even if a forger produced a painting that looked exactly the same, only the original would have value. Non-fungible tokens are similar - they are unique and distinguishable from all other non-fungible tokens. As the immortal line goes, “There can be only one.

This is because when NFTs are created, or minted, they are written to a blockchain. This minting process ensures the authentication of each NFT by providing a digital signature that is used to track NFT ownership. Consider the Mona Lisa example above. Anyone can replicate da Vinci’s masterpiece - you can even buy a print of it for a few dollars - but the owner of the authentic Mona Lisa is the French government.

The same concept applies to digital NFTs. Yes, anyone can right-click copy the image of a Degenerate Ape, but its ownership doesn’t transfer when you paste.

There are many potential uses for NFTs - digital art, games, virtual worlds, music, memes, and even film, living on blockchains like Solana, Cardano, and Ethereum. The metaverse awaits!


Your NFT Gallery in Exodus Mobile, Exodus Desktop and the Exodus Browser Extension is where you can receive, store, display, and share your NFTs!

Do I need Solana (SOL) to send my NFTs?

Yes. In addition to the minimum reserve of 0.01 SOL, you will need a small amount of SOL to pay the transaction fee to list, cancel a listing, and sent NFTs out of your NFT Gallery. Transaction fees will not be taken out of the 0.01 SOL reserve.

If you don't have enough SOL in your wallet, you will receive an error message that the Solana network requires some SOL to send and to "Deposit at least 0.000005 SOL in your wallet then try again".

Mobile (Android only)

Desktop

To fix this, you can receive SOL from another wallet, buy SOL from another platform, or exchange for SOL using the in-app exchange or the FTX Exchange app in Exodus.
