What is NFT

NFT, or non-fungible token, is a token created on a blockchain. This is a unique digital certificate or signature that guarantees the originality of some object and gives the owner exclusive rights for it.

Such assets include pieces of music, pictures, photos, videos, or other digital files of some value. Even a tweet or a building in virtual reality.

NFTs are stored in distributed blockchains, which means they cannot be forged, at least nowadays. Anyone can check the authenticity of rights for this or that asset, which decreases fraud levels in this market.

NFT technologies let content makers secure property rights for their creations and make money on safely and profitably trading unique tokens.

Today, some analysts and investors are not quite sure in future success of Cloudflare. One reason is an increase in the debt of the tech company. However, note that the corporation has a sum of money that exceeds the debt.

All this leads to an idea that hopes for future growth of Cloudflare shares is not vain. Now the quotes of Cloudflare Inc. (NYSE: NET) are falling, going by a downtrend. This can be a signal that after the quotes cross the level of $30, the company will receive a new impulse of growth and recovery.
