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.
