More about NFT And Akshaya.io
Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are digital assets that help one trade across products, including online-only assets. An NFT is a non-interchangeable unit of data and is stored on a blockchain. You can either sell or trade it. With Metaverse, NFTs, and other advanced tools, the world is slowly starting to experience the Web 3.0 transformation. It is all set to transform the utility of the internet to unimaginable levels. And Vikas Khanna seems to comprehend it quite beautifully. This is the right time to create physical + digital assets that will gain prominence in the coming years. Akshaya.io is the first-ever platform to provide the best experience of physical and experiential shopping in the virtual world. Akshaya’s marketplace powered by deep-tech enables brands, iconic celebrities, and content creators to market their products as PHYGITAL NFTs. And chef Vikas Khanna is seen doing the same with Sacred Foods of India.
