L’AFP also intend to offer non-fungible tokens, a first for the agency. In collaboration with the startup The collection, 3 NFTs will be so sold at auction Saturday 5 Nov.
The first token represents the digital duplicate of the first AFP transmission. The other two are iconic photos from Serge Gainsbourg the burning of a 500 franc note and the famous mittens of Bernie Sanders.
The growing community of crypto collectors and blockchain technology are now paving the way for new ways to interact with art, culture and heritage. We have therefore integrated our first NFTs into the exhibition and this sale,” said Marielle Eudes, Director of Special Photo Projects at AFP, in a press release.
Earlier this year, another major global news agency, Associated Press (AP)also plunged into the NFT haze with the creation of a platform where you can buy your photos in NFT format.
