Podcast: What Are Soulbound Tokens? SBTs Explained

Today, Ty answers the question, “What are soulbound tokens?” Soulbound tokens (SBTs) are easier to understand than you’d think.

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, describes SBTs as “the future” of Web3. This is because SBTs can’t be transferred once received. They are held in a wallet indefinitely.

The world of non-fungible token (NFTs) can get complicated to navigate, especially when it’s an ever-changing industry that continues to grow in complexity. The non-transferability factor is what seems to throw a lot of people off.

However, in this episode Ty will not only use real-world examples to help you better understand the concept of SBTs, but he’s answering the most common questions people currently have around SBTs. From what they truly are, how they differ from NFTs, and the true applicability and need for soulbound tokens.
