Developers are creating NFTs for older proof-of-work networks like Litecoin by forking the code behind Bitcoin Ordinals. Bitcoin developer Anthony Gurrera recently forked this code to the Litecoin blockchain and added a copy of the mimblewimble upgrade white paper, making it the first NFT on Litecoin. The effort was likely prompted by a public bounty offered to any developer who could successfully port Ordinals to Litecoin.

The judge mentioned the Howey Test, which is used to determine whether certain transactions are “investment contracts.”
