Frequently Asked Questions
1. WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN?

A blockchain is a digital record of transactions. The name comes from its structure, in which individual records, called blocks, are linked together in single list, called a chain. This chain records these transactions and information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system.


Blockchains are used for recording transactions made with cryptocurrencies, NFT marketplaces, but could and have other uses such as royalties tracking, voting mechanism, medical data sharing, etc.

2. WHAT IS AN NFT?

An NFT, or Non-Fungible-Token, is a unit of data stored a blockchain, which can be sold and traded. An NFT can be associated with a particular digital asset such as a file, game object, gif, image, etc. Each NFT has a specific, immutable, and unique ID. Also, an NFT cannot be substituted for another NFT as each NFT is distinctive and unique in some way. An NFT is not a medium of exchange and is not convertible virtual currency.


Each “Virtual 24H of Le Mans NFT” is secured by the Algorand blockchain


NFTs could be created (minted) by a developer, artist, a partner, a user and etc, but with once is traded or sold, ownership is transferred.

3. WHAT IS A FUNGIBLE TOKEN?

These are types of cryptographic tokens, based on blockchain, that are basically identical or uniform and can be interchanged with other fungible tokens of the same type without any issues, just like any physical token such as the Dollar, Euro or Renminbi are.


Such Crypto tokens are built in such a way that each fraction of a token is equivalent to the next. For instance, Bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency, is fungible, which means one Bitcoin is equal to one Bitcoin, and it's equal to all other Bitcoins. Such tokens are assumed to be interchangeable and divisible too.

4. WHAT DOES "MINTING" MEAN?

The process under which an NFT is generated or creates is called, minting. When minting an NFT or digital asset it becomes a part of the underlaying blockchain (in this case Algorand's), making it a public, unchangeable, and tamper-proof. The process is similar to the way that metal coins are minted and added into circulation, NFTs are also tokens that get “minted” once they are created. They could be minted by individuals or business for a specific purpose, like a game assets or collectible art, images and more. They are the minters.
