The Associated Press, one of the world’s largest news agencies, has just launched an NFT marketplace to sell photographs.

As reported in a press release, the platform will start operating on January 31, based on the Polygon blockchain. Each batch will contain information about the location and date of the photo, as well as about the camera and its technical settings.

NFT tokens can be paid by credit card or cryptocurrency (MetaMask, Fortmatic, Binance, and Coinbase carriers are supported).

One of the first batches available for purchase will be a Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of Oded Balilty dated February 1, 2006. The image shows the clash between a local resident and Israeli security forces in the settlement of Amona. The starting price of the lot is still unknown.
