6. What is an NFT?
At the most basic level, a non-fungible token is a one-of-a-kind, verifiable digital asset that can be exchanged between a creator and a buyer. The one-of-a-kind characteristic is essential in distinguishing NFTs from other digital assets; one NFT is not interchangeable for another, like a dollar bill or a share of stock, but is unique and has its own value.
5. What is a DAO?
A DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) is a community-led entity with no central authority. It is fully autonomous and transparent: smart contracts lay the foundational rules, execute the agreed-upon decisions, and at any point, proposals, voting, and even the very code itself can be publicly audited.
6. How does DAO voting work?
When the PCF reaches $50,000, the community (NFT owners) will vote on which animal facilities will each receive funds. Animal facilities will also receive $1,000 out of the fund for every 100 nominations. Once voting begins, community members will have 7 calendar days to place their vote.

After the voting has ended, ViciNFT will award the winning animal facility the funds based on the Pet Community Fund agreement.
