A collectible ID is a unique identifier for an NFT in its collection. However, finding a collectible ID is simple with Metamask. All you have to do is find the NFT and check its details.
A collectible ID is another property of an NFT that showcases its uniqueness. NFTs, as we all know, are digital cryptographic assets.
Unlike cryptocurrencies that can be exchanged or traded at a pegged equivalency, NFTs contain unique codes and metadata that differentiate them from other NFTs. Therefore, an NFT cannot be exchanged at equivalency.
NFT contains identification code and metadata on the blockchain, hence, its irreplaceability. They represent real-world items like real estate and art.
Meanwhile, the art that NFTs represent can vary from images to videos, audio, gaming items, gifs, and so on.
Although NFTs cannot be exchanged for another like cryptocurrencies, they can still be minted or traded on the blockchain.
Anytime an NFT is minted, a collectible or token ID is always generated. A token ID is usually a 256-bit unsigned integer variable (uint256 variable) that is assigned to an NFT.
It represents the ID of an NFT in a collection, and therefore, it is always constant and globally unique within a collection.
Meanwhile, the collectible ID and the contract address of the NFT project represent the unique representation of the NFT assets on its blockchain.
