While nonfungible tokens (NFTs) are currently suffering in the bowels of a bear market, some are using this time to build and develop new concepts with the technology.
Once such new concept is fractional NFTs — an iteration of NFTs that enable multiple investors to own a piece of a single token.
These NFTs differ from regular NFTs in that they employ smart contracts to fractionalize the token into a number of parts predetermined by the owner or issuing organization, who then set the minimum price.
When applied to real-world assets, these NFTs provide an interesting use case for investors who plan on owning valuable real-world goods.
Fractional NFTs spread the cost of asset ownership over a wide range of users, making it possible for a group of investors to own a piece of a larger asset.
David Shin, head of global group at Klaytn Foundation — a metaverse-focused blockchain — told Cointelegraph that they “enable more people to reap the benefits of asset ownership while reducing the amount of upfront capital required per user, creating more inclusivity for users who would otherwise have been priced out.”
Tokenized ownership is not a new concept. Before the advent of NFTs, tokenization was a way for users to fractionalize real-world assets. However, fractional NFTs provide a new way for investors to divide the cost and transfer ownership of particular assets.
