I apologize, I tried to make the title as concise as I could.
If a Blockchain, say the Bitcoin chain, has some NFT that exists uniquely (by definition of an NFT) on that blockchain, what prevents the same NFT from existing on a totally different blockchain, such as the Polygon Blockchain, under new ownership?
In this situation you would have the same digital asset owned by two separate people, on two separate blockchains. With the digital asset being unique only in its own blockchain.
Is there some sort of communication between all blockchains that exist that prevents this from happening?
I may be (probably) not understanding Blockchain technology properly, and I am trying to find the hole in my understanding of the topic. I've tried researching similar topics, but can't seem to find the answers I am looking for. Maybe I am using the wrong terms?
