Let’s start by introducing the basics of NFT. NFT is based on blockchain token which has special codes to signify ownership of digital items. For example, images, video files, and physical assets as well. 

To simplify, NFT minting is a process where digital files are converted into crypto collections or digital assets that are stored in the blockchain. Hence, uploading a specific item to the blockchain is minting. 

Next, the digital items will be stored in a database or a distributed ledger that cannot be edited, modified, or deleted.
