Digital signals?

Why the graph below is considered a digital signal while the time t1 has an infinite number of values and the definition of digital signals are signals that has an finite number of values

    The vertical blue line is the y-axis (has the same characteristics as the horizontal blue line).

    Horizontal blue line is the x-axis.

    t1 probably refers to the pink line above it which means it has a value of high or is hiding information because the time resolution isn't high enough.

    first of all, you do not define T1. Is it where the vertical blue line is? in that case the signal has a value of zero.

    I'd have to expand the time axis to see what goes on in those vertical pink lines. If they are a pulse with height shown (call it 1 volt), then that is a digital pulse train. The signal levels are –1, 0, +1 volts.

    There is no scale, but it looks to me like the only values for the signal are -1, 0, and +1.
