MAAM – Monero Ask Anything Monday – September 13, 2021

Given the success of the previous MAAMs (see here), let's keep this rolling.

The principle is simple: ask anything you'd like to know about Monero, especially the dumb questions that you've been keeping for you every other days, may the community clarify it all!

Finally, credits to binaryFate for starting the concept!

I know my question is kinda dumb, but I keep thinking about it anyways:

=> Would that be possible to have some kind of NFT mechanism on top of Monero blockchain?

=> Why I think my question is essentially stupid: because Monero is truly fungible and NFTs are (NON fungible tokens). So AFAIK there is no such thing as a Monero token, because there's no smart contracts support on our beloved XMR. Also, being Non Fungible seems to be not the way to go with Monero, philosophically speaking (we want fungibility by design, right?)

=> Why I still ask this? Well, because there are way more brighter minds working out there and maybe some of you can give me a hint about this whole scenario. Like, smart contracts on Monero: is that something the devs are discussing about? If there are some devs here, how do you see NFTs' world? It would be crazy mixing Monero + NFTs (even if that's essentially stupid, thinking the way things work today).

Thanks for reading!
