NFTs Defined

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique digital assets and cannot be replaced. They are often used to represent items such as art, collectibles, game items, and other digital assets.

Non-fungible means that each NFT is unique and not interchangeable with another NFT. In contrast, fungible assets like money or commodities can be easily exchanged for one another because they are all of equal value.

NFTs are stored on a blockchain, a digital ledger that records all transactions made using cryptocurrencies. When an NFT is created, it is assigned a unique code that is stored on the blockchain. This code contains information about the NFT, such as who owns it and what it represents.

New York’s Fashion Act Will Reshape Retail

Legislation pending in New York has the potential to transform the fashion world. Should the Fashion Act pass, retailers and manufacturers will soon find themselves required to map the sources of at least half of their materials and products and disclose the environmental and social impacts involved in bringing the latest trends to SoHo storefronts.

Because the law would apply to any fashion company with more than $100 million in global revenue that also sells goods in New York, the Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act is poised to have ripple effects felt well beyond Fifth Avenue.
