Read the specs of NFT's to elevate your understanding. Example: Metadata, or files are not a requirement to create a NFT.

Thanks, it's an interesting read. Nice to see confirmation of the paired credit design which is something I'd arrived at in Touchgram for our internal marketplace.

From a quick skim of the standard, it confirms something I'd long suspected - NFT on the blockchain do not support any form of discovery. They are utterly reliant on external documents which contain the NFT number and don't prove anything at all in isolation.

So any time you hear people say putting on the blockchain make sure you ask them where the rest of the data lives.
