The Cable News Network, popularly known as CNN, announced it will launch its NFT collection named “Vault by CNN” later this month.
CNN will collate and mint significant news events in its over four-decade existence and offer them to customers as NFT collectibles.
“For 41 years, CNN has gone to extraordinary lengths to document and broadcast the global stories of our time. Now, the network and digital news powerhouse is opening its archives for the first time to offer collectors the opportunity to own a piece of history.”
Vault by CNN will house a select set of digital collectibles, or ‘Moments’, from CNN’s television archives, mint them as NFTs using blockchain technology, and sell them at vault.cnn.com.
The preliminary launch will begin in late June and include six weekly drops of Moments.
CNN also gave a somewhat clouded hint about the Moments that will be offered.
Offerings will include key historical moments organized around specific themes including early CNN exclusives, world history, and Presidential Elections.
