It all started in 2007, when Winkelmann decided to publish a digital picture online every single day. Little did he know that 5000 days later, he would compile them together into one big image, and become a millionaire.
NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. Non-fungible means unique, that can’t be replaced
An NFT can be any kind of digital or conceptual content – images, videos, pixels, music, and even experiences or abstract ideas – that exclusively belongs to its owner and potential buyer. So theoretically, if it’s something that exists online, you can acquire it as an NFT.
2. What are the pros and cons of NFTs ?
The vast majority of NFTs utilize the Ethereum blockchain. So if you have cryptocurrency, you can buy NFTs. Easy! You can purchase them at NFT-specific marketplaces. Platforms such as OpenSea, Rarible and Foundation are currently booming with artists and brands selling their digital artworks and products for mind-blowing amounts of money.
As you may know by now, NFT’s primary market is when a random person buys an NFT from an artist on an NFT marketplace. The secondary market is when the buyer of an artwork resells it. And that’s where the real money is being made, because the resale price is usually higher than the base price set by the artist. Don’t worry, the artist gets a percentage every time the NFT is resold.
We’ll leave it to the professionals so here’s a video that explains how to create NFT art from scratch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7l_Z3IeGCg
The raison d’être of blockchain technology is to avoid “double-spending”. Which means that a bitcoin holder cannot spend the same bitcoin more than once. Buying and selling NFTs uses the same principle. The artist cannot sell the same NFT to multiple buyers, but the tricky part is that there are no guarantees that they haven’t created different NFTs of the same artwork.
Since NFTs are still new, rules and regulations are just being set recently. For example, you can sue an artist for selling the same artwork to several buyers on different blockchains.

, the US ecommerce market “will surpass 10% of total US retail sales for the first time in history”.
Our Facial AR try-ons include:
– Instant change of variation – no load time between different colors
When we go out shopping, we naturally take mirrors for granted as they’re everywhere, and they’re our only way to judge whether we will eventually purchase the item we’re trying on or not.
With online shopping, seeing our reflection with the product takes another dimension.
Ditto’s recorded experience is basic to say the least. You open your camera, and you are guided to turn your head left and right. After which you receive a recorded video of your face with the glasses. How time-consuming and non-intuitive!
Fittingbox has a live try-on feature, but it lacks the superior quality face-tracking functionality that Designhubz’s avatar has. It’s important to mention that all the products in our AR viewer blend with the lighting environment, while the other solutions don’t allow that.
The fit is one of the most important and tricky aspects of shopping. It makes or breaks a shopping experience, and can end up with returned products, refunds and broken hearts.
Ditto’s Pre-fit means that it does the eyewear fitting on the face before the experience on the platform. Which entails analyzing the recording of your face, doing the fitting, and then showing the result.
Fittingbox has no fit. They simply place the eyewear on your face, just like a Snapchat or Instagram filter.
While Designhubz’s solution does it all: our deep-learning algorithm provides you with the exact size and scale in real time.
Ditto and Fittingbox do not have this essential and crucial step for a seamless shopping experience that we offer our clients. Our AI recommendation engine will give you eyewear options from the catalogue that you may not have considered, that would actually be the perfect fit for your facial features and shape.
This is where Designhubz also shines! When you try out a model that has several colors and variations, our AR solution let’s you instantly switch from one variation to the other, without any loading time.
While Ditto and Fittingbox have a fixed positioning of the product, with Designhubz you can change the placement of your glasses from your eyes, to down on your nose. We’re all about that attitude!
And finally, one of our sexiest features: our high quality 3D modeling and instant swap between 3D and AR. You will have the product in all its 3D glory, with the tiniest detail in texture, color, and design.
