The Associated Press launched a collection of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) on Binance’s marketplace. The collection, named “Unique Moments”, features digitalized versions of photos and news wires based on the AP’s reporting on historical moments of the last century. Examples include Japan’s WWII surrender, Nelson Mandela’s inauguration, and the discovery of Pluto.
The NFTs are available in the form of an auction and Mystery Box.
Mystery Boxes Offer an Affordable Choice
Each Mystery Box is priced at 29BUSD (Binance’s stablecoin). With four different levels of rarity; Normal, Rare, Super Rare, and Super Super Rare.
If a person buys the Mystery Box, they will not know what is inside the Box when buying. Hence, how it got its name “Mystery Box”.
It is only after ‘opening’ the Box, the buyer gets to know.
Each Binance account can buy a maximum of 25 Mystery Boxes.
Rewards to Win
There’s an exclusive reward for the grabs too.
Buyers who collect one Normal, one Rare, and one Super Rare item and hold onto them until 11:59 PM UTC October 25 can win another NFT that “symbolizes the AP’s reach in the world.
Images Available Through Auction
Other than the boxes, some iconic images are also available for auction like the D-Day Landing AP News Flash, D-Day Landing images, and more. To buy them, a person has to participate in the auctions.
The AP sold an NFT artwork for $180,000 in ether earlier this year. Adding to the list are also The New York Times and The New Yorker who has sold NFTs.
