What is DAFAx?
Powered by Digital Art Fair, the leading international art x tech fair dedicated to innovative digital art & NFTs, DAFAx is a brand new Web 3.0 art exchange that features a self-sustaining art ecosystem where artists, collectors, dealers and gallerists from around the world can exhibit, sell and collect NFT fine art.
What are NFTs?
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a type of digital asset with blockchain-managed ownership. Unlike currency or stocks, these assets must be traded as a whole entity and not in portions. If you would like to learn more about NFTs, the history of digital art and blockchain technology, stay tuned for our knowledge depository for a concise summary of these topics.

What is the difference between DAFAx and Digital Art Fair?
Digital Art Fair is a global in-person art fair and event, and its subsidiary, DAFAx is a curated art exchange that will feature some of the digital art from the event and its own original content.
How do I set up a wallet?
Setting up a wallet is essential to starting your journey into NFTs. We recommend beginning with MetaMask via the Connect Wallet button.
I want an NFT but my cryptocurrency is not the same as the artwork’s blockchain, will this work?
Depending on the NFT’s blockchain, you will have to exchange your coin into its corresponding cryptocurrency. This means that Bitcoin will not work on Ethereum-based NFTs, and it can only be traded with ETH.
Why do I need to make an account with DAFAx?
We understand, through years of expertise in the Art World as well as our panel of advisors who have launched Crypto projects from as early as 2013, that handling cultural objects of value such as NFTs requires an equally robust system in place to ensure protections for all involved. To make an account, you would have to leave your details such as your email, as well as connect a wallet that will be associated with your account.
Can I delete an NFT?
NFTs once minted, cannot be deleted, however, they can be ‘burned’. Burning an NFT simply stops the token from circulation forever by sending it to a null address. This action is irreversible and we advise you to be careful before burning an NFT.
