Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the internet, has said that NFTs are “the most appropriate means of ownership that exists.”
Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the British inventor and computer scientist behind the creation of the internet in 1989, is auctioning off the original source code as an NFT. The auction will take place June 23-30 at Sotheby’s in London, and will include Berners-Lee’s original timestamped files which contain approximately 9,500 lines of code, an animated visualisation of the code, a letter from Berners-Lee reflecting on the creation of the web and a digital poster of the code. The auction price will start at $1,000 and proceeds will benefit initiatives that Berners-Lee and his wife jointly support.
