Digital-only trading cards are being bought and sold as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

An NFT uses blockchain technology to create a unique digital certificate which states who owns it. There is no physical item and it can still be reproduced or seen by others.

The technology has recently been used to purchase digital art, video clips, tweets and memes.

But in the last year, Pokémon cards have also experienced a revival – with many cards originating from the 1990s now fetching high prices.

So will these trading cards eventually be phased out by digital ones?

BBC Click’s Omar Mehtab finds out more.

  1. What’s funny is everybody who is complaining/sour about why he paid are the guys who missed out on btc/Eth in 2013 lol . I dumped 300k on Digital Brady, Curry, Lebron, and Ohtani. I’ll be back in 10 years to see how this plays out. Hopefully your all right on this bc I have no worries. It’s an investment on future generations of blockchain cards. Zero Carbon footprint and limited numbers all sound good to me.
