KYC for NFTs

Non-Fungible Tokens or 'NFTs' are an increasingly popular form of digital token can be thought of as complementary to cryptocurrencies. 

A cryptocurrency is a fungible token - that is, a token which is functionally equivalent to another of its kind (e.g. one bitcoin fuctions the same and has the same value as any other bitcoin).

Of course, the obvious issue with using NFTs is being able to prove ownership of them, or with proving the NFT represents what it claims to represent. Using the art world for another example, artist Damien Hurst recently made headlines by burning the originals of his work for those who preferred to purchase them as NFTs (perhaps missing an opportunity to simple use NFTs to show ownership of the originals) but

What is there to stop someone else from creating another NFT and fraudulently advertising it as a Damien Hurst NFT? Or, what is to stop someone selling an NFT they claim to own when in reality they are simply scamming the buyer in a ‘Brooklyn Bridge’ style con?

The answer to these questions is that the NFT ecosystem needs regulation. Just as crypto and blockchain are embracing regulatory measures, ensuring the safety and security of those who interact with NFTs is vital for the potential of the market to be fully realized and to thrive. By introducing KYC measures to the NFT space, the risk of encountering fraudsters and scam artists plummets, and users can interact with NFTs and each other to trade value and to develop further markets and businesses. This potential is on the verge of breaking out into something colossal as we hinge on the arrival of the metaverse - a development that will require both crypto and NFTs to fully enable the digital world to function. As this aims to become an everyday method for interaction and underpinning technology for life in the future, it has to be protected from bad actors.
