Why NFTs? Why the blockchain?
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are essentially digital limited-edition lithographs. Museums can reproduce works from their collections, just like they do everyday with print, and sell them on the blockchain with a digital certificate of authenticity. Like other collectibles, you can buy, sell, and trade them.
Combining museums with the blockchain are a perfect match because they share a common goal: preservation and permanence. By placing museum collections on the blockchain, we are decentralizing the world's knowledge while ensuring our history will live on forever.
