Forbes is selling latest cover as an NFT
Forbes said Monday that its latest cover will be sold a non-fungible token.
The digital art, featuring Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, titled “Merchants of the Metaverse,” will be sold at a limited 24-hour auction beginning 1:30 p.m. Wednesday and closing 1:30 p.m. Thursday
Forbes will donate all proceeds to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) and the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF).
“In turning our cover into an NFT, we’re demonstrating that journalism is as immutable as the one-of-a-kind artwork portrays and helping two key organizations – the CPJ and IWMF – which are committed to helping advance and protect journalists,” said Forbes chief content officer Randall Lane in a statement.
The NFT cover will be auctioned on Nifty Gateway. The NFT platform Nifty Gateway was purchased by the Winklevoss twins in November 2019.
