From launch of the Challenger to live reports of the Gulf Air to Larry King interviews – CNN is selling clips of its historical news as NFT’s.


The NFT saga continues to hold the fort, with several brands recognizing its value. And the latest to jump of the non-fungible token bandwagon is CNN that is all set to sell NFTs of memorable historical ‘moments.’ You heard that!

Called “Vault by CNN,” the WarnerMedia-owned cable news channel will be curating a set of digital collectibles it is calling “Moments” from its TV archives and “minting” them as NFTs using blockchain technology. After making a purchase, users will also be able to go to their own user page on the “Vault by CNN” website to look and display their “Moments.”

Initially, there will be six weekly drops of these Moments starting sometime in June, which will at first include historical moments organized around specific themes, including early CNN exclusives, world history, and presidential elections.

Commenting on it, the network in a statement said, “For 41 years, CNN has gone to extraordinary lengths to document and broadcast the global stories of our time,” while further adding, “Now, the network and digital news powerhouse is opening its archives for the first time to offer collectors the opportunity to own a piece of history.”
