Washington Wizards Starting Five Collections

Inspired by the legendary cherry blossom trees that line the border of Washington D.C.'s tidal basin, the Wizards' Bloom City NFT Collection features five unique pieces of art that digitally bring to life one of the city's most historically beautiful symbols. The cherry blossom trees were a gift from Japan to the United States in 1912 and have stood as a symbol of peace and solidarity every year since, blooming annually to provide the Nation's capital with a fresh start and a new outlook on the coming season. Fusing some of D.C.'s most recognizable landmarks, Wizards' iconography and authentic Japanese artistic elements – like the twisting, hypnotic Suminagashi effect – the Wizards' Bloom City NFT Collection arrives just in time for Spring.

NFT BASICS

NFT stands for non-fungible token. It is a one-of-a-kind digital token that you can buy, sell, or hold. These tokens can represent almost anything. Sometimes they are associated with a digital image, GIF, or song. Sometimes, they can be redeemed for a physical object. Sometimes the owner is entitled to an experience, like a movie or a phone call. Sometimes they are associated with nothing at all.

A blockchain is a ledger of transactions distributed amongst many computers. It is public and immutable, meaning that the transactions that occur on it are irreversible and can be referenced in the future. The blockchain enables for the exchange of these NFTs in a decentralized, peer-to-peer format.

NFTs can take a number of forms. The most common use case today is the sale and exchange of digital art. Ownership of an NFT can grant you access to real world experiences and physical items. Some people even buy NFTs purely for their emotional value, like a piece of art. We are still discovering the unique ways NFTs can be used.
