Getty Images Dusting Off Archives for NFTs
Getty Images and Candy Digital are teaming up to release an inaugural collection of NFTs celebrating the music and culture of the 1970s, according to a tweet thread from Candy Digital.
"Exposure" features a collection of rare archival footage from the 1970s. Find key details below:
- The collection will feature rare and iconic images from Getty Images' archives, featuring Elvis, David Bowie, and more.
- The collection will be available on Mar. 21 at oncandy.com/gettyimages at 1:00 p.m. ET.
- Individual images can be had for $25, while collections will be $200.
❗Why It Matters
Getty Images has been capturing and collecting a vast array of the top culutural events of the last century and its venturing into web3 provides individuals with unique ownership experiences not previously available. While the first drop features iconic moments from the 1970s, many more rare snapshots of time could potentially become available through official drops with Candy Digital.
🎬 Take Action
While users can purchase from the "Exposure" collection on Mar. 21, Candy is also offering a free digital collectible to celebrate the event. Anyone with a Candy Digital account can claim "It's Time to Light the Lights," an image captured in 1935 for free.
