Beyond the hype of NFT in the art sector, use cases across various sectors, including the financial industry, are emerging as NFT increases in maturity. NFT stands for non-fungible token and is often described as a blockchain-based asset that can be used to represent ownership of unique items. As such, it presents the same intrinsic characteristics of blockchain technology (immutable, decentralized, traceable, transparent, and near real-time). But, NFT brings also its own set of characteristics, such as non-fungibility, uniqueness, scarcity, verifiability, and programmability.

Three key points of the report


1. NFTs are rapidly expanding


Currently, the most popular types of NFTs are those related to art. However, as the technology evolves, new types of products are emerging, including as a way to issue bonds, distribute dividends, creating real estate products,and for enabling the DeFi ecosystem.

2. Some prominent Use Cases




The number of NFT use cases explored to help address these pain points is growing, with the potential to improve this industry through verification of asset ownership, real- time transactions, fraud detection optimization and more. NFTs further have the potential to democratize certain classes of assets, products, or services.


3. Next Steps for Sound and Widespread Adoptions



While most of the NFT use cases are still in exploration, according to a new report from KPMG and HSBC, NFT is the most prominent industry sub-sector, with 25% of emerging giants in Asia Pacific identifying themselves as part of this sub-sector category.
