Taiwan’s Central Bank Finds NFTs As Inappropriate, Warns General Public To Stay Away

Non-fungible tokens have risen sharply in the digital space, but there are some concerns about their growth. More people are embracing NFTs and their many opportunities in the virtual world. The focus is on some uses and applications of NFTs. Some brands use tokens for advertising, while others use tokens to build and engage a strong user community.

However, recent reports of fraud using irreplaceable tokens are increasing. Some strategies and frauds go back to the use of NFTs. Such uprisings have attracted the attention of various governments, regulators and financial institutions.

There are rumors and beliefs that many fake transactions occur in NFT spaces. In addition, a recent report disclosed a warning from the Central Bank of Taiwan, which shares the same opinion on fake NFT transactions.

Taiwan News reports that the Central Bank of the Republic of China is skeptical about NFT investment. The top bank of the country has issued its statement based on a survey of the NFT collection. According to the report, the profitability of NFT investments was recorded to be less than 30% among investors. In addition, many of the artwork NFTs remained unsold.

NFT collection can be suspicious

In that debate, banks suspect ownership certification by collectibles. NFT definitions are in physical and virtual items.

Therefore, once an investor acquires an NFT collection, they need to prove ownership and verify their credibility. However, banks claim that anyone could develop an NFT to steal investor data, which could involve suspicious creators.

Last year, Taiwan’s central bank confirmed significant growth in the NFT market. As of 2020, there were about 75,000 traders hovering through NFT transactions in the market. That number gradually increased to 2.3 million participants in 2021. However, the overall price decline in crypto space also affected NFT performance.
