NFTs

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are crypto assets on a blockchain with special identification codes and metadata that can’t be replicated. NFTs differ from “fungible” crypto because they aren’t traded or exchanged equally.

Note

Currently, you can only receive and store NFTs with Robinhood Wallet. We’re working on support for sending NFTs in the future.

Protect yourself from NFT scams

As NFTs gain popularity, scams are becoming more common. Scammers have come up with sophisticated ways to convince you to transfer your NFTs, or to sign malicious contracts that give them permission to access your wallet.

Here are some popular NFT scams to look out for:

  • Counterfeit NFTs that look like authentic or popular NFTs, which hold no actual value and are designed solely to steal your crypto.
  • Fake marketplaces, social media accounts, giveaway offers, and unsolicited airdropped NFTs. These usually contain phishing links designed to get your personal or sensitive wallet information–like your secret recovery phrase. Others are embedded with malicious smart contracts designed to give the scammer access to your NFTs or entire wallet.
  • Pump-and-dump schemes where scammers rapidly and artificially inflate the price of an NFT and then sell the NFT to you when the value is high, leaving you stuck with an NFT that has little-to-no real value.
  • Rug-pull schemes where scammers attract investors, but then abandon the project and disappear with project funds.

To keep your NFTs, wallet, and data secure, we suggest taking the following precautions:

  • Never share your secret recovery phrase with anyone. We will never ask you for your secret recovery phrase outside of the Robinhood Wallet app.
  • Be wary of suspicious phishing, social engineering, and scam attempts. This includes airdrops, emails, text messages, social media messages, and fraudulent websites that ask for your personal information, contain unexpected NFTs, offer financial advice, etc. When in doubt, verify the authenticity of any request before taking action.
  • Before signing a transaction with your wallet, make sure to check the transaction details. It’s possible for scammers to access your funds if you sign a transaction, so only approve transactions if you trust the sender.
  • Only transact with entities and individuals that you know and trust. This includes connecting to dapps, interacting with NFTs, sending and receiving NFTs, and so on.
  • Do your research. Review the transaction history of an NFT before interacting with it, cross-check NFT prices, and review the collection information.

In general, it's a good rule of thumb to always proceed with caution when interacting with NFTs, marketplaces, giveaways, and websites. If something sounds too good to be true or seems suspicious, it probably is.
