The use case of NFT is different from other cryptocurrencies, people who own an NFT are at par with the proof of ownership. Apart from applying on artworks, music and games, it is possible to apply on the trading of real world housing. Creating NFT for property contracts allows buyers to buy the estate directly from the sellers, without processing redundant procedures like paperwork and communication via agency. Therefore, the virtual land sale can happen in the real world, and with the characteristics of blockchain, NFT can prevent others from copying, or destroying it. Thus, people can create NFTs for tangible things to prove their ownership ans prevent controversy.
