Katja sees the irreversible tokens as a classic exhibition at an art gallery. “NTF is a great chance for making money basically like in an art gallery, except that this one is online. And so, buyers are the visitors of the platform on which I exhibit my art,” says Katja and adds that all galleries, even online ones, have their criteria. And in order to meet those criteria, you have to prove that your art is authentic and high-quality. This is then officially marked with a tick next to the artist’s name – they receive a verification badge. In order to verify her account, Katja had to prove that she is the author of the work she published, which means that she had to record herself while making one of her NTF’s. She received the approval in 15 days, however, she says that the waiting period has now been extended to one month because more and more users are entering the platform.
