The AP Unique Moments collection brings together digital coverage, photos and news feeds of some of the most iconic moments of the past 100 years.
These include the surrender of Japan during WWII, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, commercial innovation in space, and the discovery of Pluto.
More than a day until the release of the AP Unique Moments NFT series @TheBinanceNFT marketplace on October 19 at 12 p.m. UTC. The series offers collectors historic news photos and rare topical artifacts showcasing ten pivotal moments over the past 100 years, as the AP reported. pic.twitter.com/bnTj3b9qSf

Unique NFTs are to be won on Binance’s NFT Marketplace, a virtual space launched by the crypto exchange in June this year. Interested buyers must have a Binance account, and each account will have access to purchase a capped number of 25 NFT for the price of 29 BUSD each. BUSD is owned by Binance stable currency (the equivalent of USD in cryptocurrency).
Interestingly, buyers won’t have the option to choose which specific NFTs they would like to own. Instead, they’ll find importance levels for the event or topic covered, which group the NFTs into mystery boxes – each ranked in order of importance from “Ordinary” To “super super rare.”
Additionally, buyers who have collected a Standard Mystery Box, a Rare, and a Super Rare from NFT, and kept them without selling them before 11:59 p.m. UTC on October 25, will have the opportunity to earn another NFT that “Symbolizes the reach of the PA in the world”.
The collection was curated by Metalist’s Laboratory, an Australian publisher of NFT who was previously responsible for the curation and release of Chinese video game company NetEase.
The Associated Press is not new to the NFT space, as it already sold a single digitized work of art for the equivalent of $ 180,000 in March.
