What Are NFT Coins? Hint: They Aren’t NFTs.

Not to be confused with NFTs themselves, NFT coins are any cryptocurrency coins used to support NFTs ecosystems. For example, Axie Infinity is an NFT blockchain game that uses their native token, AXS, to facilitate staking and voting to maintain the play-to-earn economy. Thus, AXS is Axie Infinity’s NFT coin. NFT coins like AXS, SLP and SAND help decentralized applications with a variety of important functions, from being an in-game currency to voting. And like any other cryptocurrency, NFT coins can be traded or invested in.

The main way NFT coins differ from NFTs is in their fungibility. NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, represent ownership rights to unique digital or real-world assets, while NFT coins are fungible, i.e. they can be traded or exchanged for another NFT coin of the same value. As mentioned, NFT coins are the token currencies that power the economy of NFT projects.

From being a medium of exchange, acting as staking rewards and being transacted as in-game currency, NFT tokens have great utility in the metaverses of projects. Below, we’ve listed the top 5 most popular NFT coins available on Binance, with prices of NFT currencies based on opening price at 22th February 2022 on Binance exchange.
