The development and the knowledge of blockchain technology in the last few years have been incredible and have resulted in the growth of Cryptos and NFTs. Blockchain is a digital ledger where all the information is duplicated and distributed to thousands of systems that are connected to the specific blockchain. Thousands of systems are connected simultaneously as a chain link to perform simulations on the blockchain network. The security of the blockchain networks makes them unique as they cannot be hacked from any attacks as the information is distributed and stored on various systems around the globe. Currently, the most popular blockchain networks with the most features are Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, and Solana. Developing these blockchain networks results in NFT development.
