The WarnerMedia-owned cable news channel is branching into the burgeoning NFT space with a new offering it is calling the “Vault by CNN.”
Beginning in late June, the company will “mint” NFTs on the Flow blockchain of memorable moments from CNN’s 41-year history. It will then sell them to the public as digital collectibles. The first batch of news “moments” is TBD, but the company says it could include coverage from presidential elections, CNN exclusives, or moments from world history (want to own CNN’s coverage of the Berlin Wall coming down? Now might be your chance!).
The tokenholder will be able to display the moments they own on a user page in the “vault,” and CNN says that it is working with a third-party company to produce a physical version of the NFTs for some limited edition sets that “will include a premium video display case that will render a physical representation of the Moment on a screen.”
