One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for NFTs
“One small step for man, one giant leap for NFTs.” Another use case for NFT tech is to validate the provenance of physical objects. A bunch of Buzz Aldrin’s stuff from the Apollo 11 mission (his jacket, a pen etc) is being auctioned. Each physical item comes with an NFT of the object. The NFT is made by scanning the physical object at the microscopic level which means that the NFT validates the object as at that level every object is different – kind of like an object’s DNA.
Very helpful if the buyer ever wants to resell Aldrin’s jacket & needs to prove authenticity. Though who would want to part with it – looks much better in the pool room than a framed Broncos jersey.
