This Week’s Non-Fungible Token News

CC0: The debate of the week

A hot topic via crypto Twitter and in NFT corners this week was a move from Lunar birds, which moved their ownership rights model to cc0, or creative commons. In short, this essentially made Moonbirds a public domain, removing the owners’ rights to their respective intellectual property. It is a movement that the founder of Moonbirds Kevin Rose believes “honors and respects the values ​​of the internet and web3.”

This led to a variety of opinions on the matter, as the project began to see a sale and subsequent bump. Creators of Moonbirds Proof Collective opened an investigation to gather feedback from community members following the announcement.

Following the sale of the NFTs, Tiffany offered a matching mechanism allowing CryptoPunk owners to link their NFT to their Punk and trade in their personalized pendant.

Meta will expand NFT support on Instagram to over 100 countries

Textbook publisher Pearson tracks secondary sales via NFTs

Textbooks are notorious for being a college burden that’s hard to escape. Although not always an option, many classes have used books as options, and to date publishers have not aggressively pursued a share of secondary sales, primarily because there was no no low-risk option that does not require major investments. . The non-fungible tokens, however, apparently caught the eye of major textbook publisher Pearson.

The company is exploring NFT textbooks, according to reports last week, but to what end remains to be seen. Token textbooks would allow Pearson to collect a percentage of resale transactions, but the impacts on textbook prices (which really remains the bottom line in this discussion) as a result are difficult to measure.

The domain is currently routing to a one-page view.
