Basically, a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is a blockchain-based cryptographic token representing a unique asset. NFTs can be tokenized versions of real-world assets or digital assets. As the name suggests NFTs are ‘non-fungible’ meaning they’re not mutually interchangeable.
NFTs are used to create digital ownership for some unique digital items like crypto art, crypto-gaming, or crypto-collectibles. They also create the facility of asset interoperability across multiple platforms.

NFT data aggregator nonfungible.com shows that there have been 32501 sales over the last month with nearly $3.5 million in trade volumes.
