Associated Press Launching NFT Marketplace for Its Photographs
The news agency, the Associated Press, is launching a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace for collectors to purchase photographs from its 175-year history.
The marketplace is being built by blockchain tech firm Xooa and the NFTs will be minted on the Polygon blockchain.
The initial collection will be released over several weeks starting on Jan. 31, with subjects ranging from space, climate and war to spotlights on the work of specific AP photographers.
Each NFT will include detailed metadata showing the time, date, location, equipment and technical settings used for the photograph.
Last June, CNN launched The Vault, an NFT collection of top news moments from its 41-year history, on the Flow blockchain.Source
