Your chance to own the internet…kind of
One of the architects of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, is selling the source code to the original web browser as an NFT.
The auction, which is being run by Sotheby’s, will include both the code for the WorldWideWeb browser as well as a letter from Berners-Lee, a printable vector file, and a 30-minute silent video that depicts the code being typed out.
Berners-Lee finds NFTs particularly exciting, saying they’re “the latest playful creations” on the internet and “the ideal way to package the origins behind the web.”
The proceeds from the sale will benefit causes supported by Berners-Lee and his wife.
