The time is right for NFT Photography
NFTphotography creates a new revenue stream for photographers, photo estates, and collectors.

Blockchain technology simplifies the licensing process by providing full transparency on how photographic work is being used.
Smart contracts verify ownership and create a true status of uniqueness and authenticity.
Entries and transactions in a blockchain cannot be manipulated, making acquisition and ownership of an NFT both guaranteed and verifiable.
Just as with digital art, music clips, videos and animation, blockchain technology offers an exciting and lucrative new format for traditional film photography.
How the works of 20th century master photographers in particular fit into this new era is largely dependent on the adaptability of the copyright holders of master works.
The significance of NFT photographs
For veteran art collectors, the first glimpse into the world of NFTs can be an overwhelming experience.
The Bock-Schroeder Foundation is aware of the opportunities that arise from the novel application of NFTs and NFT derivatives.

The vibrancy of NFTs is poised to create a much more vibrant and eager-to-buy generation amongst photo lovers.
What is an NFT ?
Unlike traditional cryptocurrencies, where units are interchangeable, NFTs are blockchain-based digital commodities with units designed to be unique.
Digital scarcity and uniqueness are not the only attractions. The individual benefits and emotions resulting from the origin of the Photo NFT are equally significant.
NFTs represent a distinctive and unique asset in the physical and real world or/and in digital format.
They act as a verifiable proof of ownership and authenticity within a blockchain network.
Photo NFTs verify ownership, create uniqueness, and reward creators. Another interesting feature is the ability to link license agreements to NFTphotographs.
As of 2021, more than $44.2 billion in cryptocurrencies have been sent by NFT investors to ERC-721 and ERC-1155 contracts, the two Ethereum smart contract types used in the context with NFT marketplaces and NFT collections.

NFTs are singular, non-interchangeable (non fungible), rare, unique, permanent, traceably scarce, and counterfeit-proof.
NFT boudoir photography is a distinctive element within portrait photography and the NFT market for art and fine art photography.
Luxury boudoir erotic photography is all about the empowerment and emancipation of women.
Seductive poses and erotic photography play an important role in the evolution of NFTphotography and the market for crypto collectibles.
Art, glamour and erotic photographs conquer the NFT world right down the line.
