What is an NFT?
On a higher level of understanding an NFT is a Non-Fungible Token stored on the blockchain, in layman’s terms, it is a one-of-a-kind digital asset that belongs to the owner and owner only until and unless the ownership is transferred which is further recorded on the blockchain. Each token is unique. Due to the unique metadata of each NFT, its characteristics cannot be changed and the NFT itself cannot be duplicated. NFTs can be anything ranging from a photo, a video, or an audio file to tweets and clothing apparel. With the recent surge of the metaverse, another added utility to these NFTs is rising as consumables in the metaverse.
The total market cap of NFTs surged to a new all-time high of $10.7 billion during the third quarter of 2021. That is an increase of 723% when compared to the second quarter of 2021 when total sales in NFTs reached $1.3 billion.

** Since transactions are executed peer-to-peer via the blockchain there is no intervention of a middleman. This has resulted in artists being rewarded more fairly for their effort.
** Many factors contribute to the overall value of an NFT. The main are immutable ownership and digital scarcity. Regardless of the amount of me that passes, you will always have the opportunity to validate an NFT within a few minutes.

The Real Origin Story
The team wanted to create something that everyone was well acquainted with, a Stick Figure. The team thought that everyone has been drawing stick figures since they were just kids, so why not transform them into NFTs? And the XRP ledger turned that idea into reality. Stick figures turned into modern-day art, xStiks as individual characters are fun, versatile, and surprising. xStik can be turned into anything, xStik can be a celebrity, athlete, or animal, the possibilities are endless but the primary goal of the project is to represent XRP worldwide as the official mascot.

This will drive an upward price action by inducing competitiveness among the community, the utility of the xStik token is not limited, Game adaptations for the token are also in talks and planned later down the roadmap.
