NFT History

● In 1993, Hal Finney - the first member of the crypto community to assist Satoshi Nakamoto in testing Bitcoin - proposed an idea for "crypto trading cards." However, due to technical limitations, his plan was not implemented. This marks the beginning of NFT.
● In 2013, Ethereum proposed in its whitepaper to create a special type of asset that could be used as an anchor for other tokens. In the early days of the cryptocurrency industry, there were only two standards: ERC721 and ERC1155.
● In June 2017, CryptoPunks, the world's first NFT project, was released in Ethereum. In the same year, a game called CryptoKitties, created by the Dapper Labs team, officially introduced the concept of "NFT" for the first time.
● From 2018 to 2020, the NFT ecosystem grew significantly. The increasing user base and technical innovations have led to more creative NFT projects. NFT platforms such as OpenSea and Rarible have been developed, covering numerous fields such as games, artworks, collectibles, music, etc.
