From mega-computers to Web 3.0: Ethernity Chain "looks back"
According to an official announcement by the Ethernity Chain (ERN) team, it scheduled its first NFT offering for next week. It is intended to pay homage to early Internet enthusiasts, from the 1950s to the 2020s.
The team shared that it did not chose a single person to be an "NFT-ized" symbol of Internet history. Instead, the event will recall all significant milestones in digital history with an emphasis on digital art.
From Bell Labs and TI to Apple and Microsoft, from the dotcom bubble to Satoshi Nakamoto and Hal Finney, the organizers of this auction attempted to cover all of the heroes of the digital era.
Jason Heuser, an author of the memetic "Ninja Cat" image is the official art partner of this massive NFT drop. The whole procedure is called "Welcome to the Internet."
