The winner of this World Wide Web source code will receive a letter from Tim Berners-Lee “outlining the code and the process of creating it.”
The original source code that formed the basis of the World Wide Web was auctioned off at Sotheby as part of a non-hazardous token (NFT) token. About 9,555 lines of source code, written by British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee, will be tied to NFT proving the authenticity of the code and unique identity, with bids starting at just $ 1,000.
“Why should you have an NFT? It’s only natural to do it … if you’re a computer scientist and then coding and you’ve been for many years,” Berners-Lee said in a statement. He added saying that it Sounds good to sign his autograph on digital artefact.
The advent of NFT has made it possible to sell digital-born art, which allows to prove that the files provided are original. The digitally signed digital files provide digital files with an unexplained shortage. NFTs are not unlimitedly produced and offer exceptional digital files and make it possible for them to be managed.
NFT World Wide Web source code will contain the original archive for date and time files with time stamps containing code written between 1990 and 1991. HTML (Link Language Setting); HTTP (Maximum Transfer Protocol); and URIs (Similar Resource Identifiers).
The winning buyer will receive a letter from Berners-Lee “indicating the code and the process of creating it,” as well as a detailed view of the written code, lasting 30 minutes and 25 seconds.
In a book accompanying the files to be auctioned off, Tim Berners-Lee noted that it was fun to look at the code and see how those few lines of code fit well in the process of becoming the current web form. He added according to Sotho that he have never felt so comfortable sitting down – as the web was and always changing. So far no better thing has been done: there is always work to be done!
The bid will open on June 23, 2021, and will close at 11:31 pm (IST), June 30, 2021.
