AP’s NFT marketplace is being built by blockchain technology company Xoa and works will be created on top of the Polygon blockchain. The initial collection will include photographs covering topics such as space, climate and war from AP photojournalists.

They will be released in a few weeks, starting January 31, at various prices. Each NFT will include detailed metadata showing the time, date, location, equipment, and technical settings used for the photo.

Head of markets at Xooa, Zach Danker-Feldman, said the partnership will serve as a powerful connection between the virtual and real worlds. According to an announcement from the AP, money from the sale of NFTs will go back to funding the organization.

“With Xoa’s technology, we are proud to offer encrypted work to a large global audience of NFT photography collectors.”
