Cryptocollectable

Crypto-collectibles are cryptographically unique and non-fungible digital assets based on blockchain technology.

A crypto-collectible is a cryptographically unique, non-fungible digital asset. They usually take the form of collectible items, such as trading cards, pets or real-life objects. Crypto-collectibles rely on the ERC721 token standard on the Ethereum blockchain. It is possible to exchange and collect crypto-collectibles as they are digitally scarce, contrary to normal digital assets.

The most notable cryptocollectibles project are CryptoKitties and Decentraland.
