WTF* 是一種 NFT**（非同質化代幣）
NFTs can be a financial investment, a sentimental purchase, a collectible item or a way for the buyer to feel more connected to the NFT’s creator, like an artist or a brand. It is similar to how people collect baseball cards, sneakers or even Beanie Babies.
*編按：WTF 在本文中僅出現在標題，此文為《DIGIDAY》系列專欄「WTF Series」。WTF，在英文世界有時會是「What the fxxk?」的縮寫。本文開頭，推特創辦人多爾西拍賣他的第一則推文成為 NFT，裡面也使用代號：「twttr」——是 twitter 省略母音，所以同理，推文「WTF」也可已成為 NFT。
**編按：NFT，Non-Fungible Token，是不可分割、不可取代、獨一無二的「非同質化代幣」。詳細介紹可參閱：〈區區小事｜NFT系列〈2〉什麼是NFT？— 區塊鏈與虛實整合的關鍵，萬物皆可幣？〉
