World Wide Web’s Original Code Will Be Auctioned as an NFT by Sotheby’s

Sotheby will be auctioning off an NFT of the original source code for the World Wide Web in June. The code used in the NFT was developed by British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989.

The NFT will go on sale on June 23rd, and it will have a bidding price that begins at $1,000. The NFT was signed by Berners-Lee himself, and it also includes his original time-stamped files.

“Why an NFT? Well, it’s a natural thing to do when you’re a computer scientist and when you write code and have been for many years. It feels right to digitally sign my autograph on a completely digital artifact,” he declared.

“Three decades ago, I created something which, with the subsequent help of a huge number of collaborators across the world, has been a powerful tool for humanity. NFTs, be they artworks or a digital artifact like this, are the latest playful creations in this realm, and the most appropriate means of ownership that exists. They are the ideal way to package the origins behind the web,” added Berners-Lee.
