NFTs are Non-Fungible Tokens are cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin or Ether (ETH), but they only represent/deal with one item each - hence "Non-Fungible." The NFT system allows people, for the first time in Internet history, to buy and sell unique objects (like digital art, collectibles, games, or land). If you have never heard of NFTs, or this is new to you, or you know a little about it but want to know more and want to invest, but don't know where to start - or maybe you've already invested and got burned and want to do it right.

Paulette Watson will show you everything you need to know about the world of NFTs, how to invest, and how to make money safely and avoid losing it to scams, hacks, and destructive projects. You will learn the basics and navigate your way through this space. NFTs are one of the most exciting innovations in history and will change the world
