What is a tezos NFT?

Tezos NFT is a digital file that has been turned into a non-fungible token on the Tezos cryptocurrency blockchain. 

Tezos is a great choice for artists because the fees for creating NFTs and collections of NFTs are very low compared to other blockchains. To get started on, you only need to spend around five dollars.
