NFT means a non-replaceable, digitally protected object that cannot be copied. A token is the digitized form of an asset. The token therefore has a certain value or function. At the same time, however, real assets such as real estate or music rights can also be tokenized by transferring the rights and obligations associated with the token. This means that ownership relationships are digitally mapped and are therefore negotiable.
