Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is Crowducers?
Crowducers is the first innovative financing initiative built for the movie industry, which allows you to invest with confidence in major international productions and in cinematographic works. It only takes a few clicks and the process is completely secure.
What are NFTs and how do they work?
NFT is the acronym for Non-Fungible Token. The adjective “non-fungible” indicates a non-replicable and non-replaceable good because it has a specific individuality. An NFT can be any digital object: a video, a photo or an image, a music or an audio track, a text or an article, it has a certificate of authenticity and uniqueness, issued thanks to blockchain technology.
NFTs are, therefore, contents associated with a digital register, which guarantees the characteristics of uniqueness and authenticity, giving the buyer a certificate of originality and ownership of the digital product, which is equivalent to the signature of the author. Each NFT, thanks to the blockchain, is a unique piece.
NFTs therefore represent the ownership of unique objects. They can only have one official owner at a time and are tracked and protected by the blockchain: no one can change the intellectual property of a digital work or copy a new existing NFT.
NFTs represent a digital asset: as tokens we can use them to prove our ownership of unique objects. Digital items such as film, art and collectibles can be created and exchanged.
