The covers will be auctioned at the SuperRare marketplace. However, the auction will close on 24 March, 8 PM ET.

I love the idea that it’s meaning isn’t clear to the casual viewer – much like the crazy, lucrative world of NFTs.
Recently, Amsterdam-based education technology firm Growth Tribe minted job postings as an NFT on the Rarible marketplace. The chief strategy officer of Growth Tribe happened to comment:
Although the idea of a job ad as an NFT makes no sense from a ‘collectible’ point of view at this point… it makes total sense in trying to grab the attention of digital talent.
