Sotheby’s “Source Code For The WWW” NFT Worth $5.4M Might Have Been Inauthentic

Sotheby’s managed to sell Sir Tim-Berners Lee’s masterpiece “Source Code For The WWW” NFT. It was sold for around $5.4 million on June 30. The unique Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is a representative of the code powering the world wide web or the Internet. It includes but not limited to the three protocols invented by Sir Tim – HTML, HTTP, and URIs. It also contains an animated visualization of the code being written, early documentation containing instruction on how to use HTML, and a personal letter by Sir Tim, detailing how he wrote it. But research suggests that the NFT might have been inauthentic!
