BC Vault does support storage of NFTs on Ethereum (and Ethereum clones as Polygon, Cronos...) Wallets natively (ERC-721) and via WalletConnect protocol (ERC-1155...)!
What are NFTs - Non-fungible token?
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a special type of cryptographic token that represents something unique. NFTs are called non-fungible because they are not mutually interchangeable, since they contain unique information, although it is possible to mint any number of NFTs representing the same object. This is in contrast to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, and many networks or utility tokens, that are fungible in nature (Wikipedia 2021).
How to use BC Vault with NFTs (ERC-721):
From v1.8.0 BC Vault Desktop Application will show you all your ERC-721 NFTs in the application itself (all other NFTs are supported via WalletConnect and sites as OpenSea, see below).
This icon will show you which crypto currencies on the BC Vault support in-application NFT operations:
You can directly view and send the NFTs from the application itself.
