The WAX blockchain serves as a decentralized marketplace and dApp platform that is hyper-focused on video gaming and virtual collectibles. NFTs in particular are stored in Interplanetary File System, IPFS, and not housed in any internal database. IPFS is a decentralized file system that stores media and large content and allows you to view your NFTs, avatars and more when used as a service; your NFTs are minted and stored on the blockchain itself. If it’s not on IPFS, it’s not your NFT.
