Here's what the form looks like:The handwritten piece of paper has already been auctioned three times since 2017, with its value rising 1,200% during that period, showing just how attractive the item is.
London-based tech entrepreneur Olly Joshi, who bought the original application for $224,750 at a London auction in March this year, will be hosting the "NFT versus Physical" auction.The latest auction "aims to highlight the modern shift in perceived value - the physical or the digital," Joshi said in a statement, and added that this could open a whole new market for collectibles in which both forms co-exist.
When will the asset be available for sale?The simultaneous physical and
Bids on the digital asset, which is being sold in partnership with NFT marketplace Rarible, should be placed and paid for in ether. The physical form, sold via a partnership with auction software company Snoofa, can be purchased with cash or the cryptocurrency.
"This unique auction format will truly test where value lies," Alexander Salnikov, co-founder of Rarible, said in a statement. "Coming from a tech background, obviously I'm fighting on the NFT side. May the best Jobs application win!"An undisclosed percentage of the sale will be donated to charity partners Cancer Research Institute and One Laptop Per Child.
