How To Learn About The NFT Space Quickly And Easily
What is the fastest way to get up to speed on the subject of NFTs?
The NFT space is moving at ludicrous speed, and you’ve been meaning to look into these NFT things, but y’know, they seem really complicated and you have a real life to attend to. All of a sudden, some type of opportunity has come along or you’re beginning to see the writing on the wall and you need to know everything there is to know about NFTs, like yesterday; at least that’s how I felt when I started learning about blockchain tech. It seemed like I was already late to the party and needed to get up to speed as quickly as possible. The key is finding high quality content and consuming it efficiently. Let’s talk about some of the techniques and methods we can use to separate the wheat from the chaff.
The first place I always go when I want to get familiar with a new subject is Youtube, I feel like, for me, visual learning tends to be the best way to retain the information. There are many amazing channels featuring NFT learning courses. Search for “NFT beginners”, “learn NFTs” and other more specific queries when you’ve increased your knowledge base. Always check the youtube channels page to read about them and see if they have an extensive catalog pertaining to NFTs and well defined playlists. Watch a sample video and then, if you like the format, subscribe to the channel and continue the hunt. I specifically look for multi-video series that start at the most basic level.
Youtube is great when I’m in front of a computer or sitting on the couch, but I often find myself on the go. I usually look for audiobooks on subjects that I am interested in, but the NFT space is evolving so fast that books can become outdated. My favorite way to consume information about NFTs is audio podcasts. When you’re just starting out, look for beginner oriented podcasts at first and once you’ve gleaned everything you can from that style of podcast, move on to podcasts that are focused on weekly or daily news about the NFT space. It’s a great way to stay on top of the zeitgeist, and to find out about new projects, developments and technology.
When you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty, good old fashioned reading will bring you through to the finish. Medium has become the de-facto space for NFT oriented articles and a quick search will yield hundreds of results. If you have the time to sit down and read, these articles are a perfect way to dig deeper into the nuances in the NFT world. There are new articles being published every day on every related subject. Familiarize yourself with the terminology and deep-dive into specific subjects.
If you follow these steps, you will be well on your way to understanding and utilizing NFT and blockchain technology in no time. Once you have a basic understanding, the learning curve flattens dramatically.
