Cointelegraph Historical Collection private sale is now live


Anxious to mint a piece of crypto history as a digital collectible? The time has almost come. After amassing a waitlist of more than 400,000 participants, spurring a delayed but fairer launch, Cointelegraph’s Historical nonfungible token (NFT) collection opened on Nov. 23 for waitlisters and will go live on Dec. 1 for the general public.

Although the crypto and blockchain space is comparatively new in terms of world history, a number of memorable events have painted unforgettable headlines through the years. Cointelegraph’s Historical Collection gives the public a chance to look through Cointelegraph’s history of articles and immortalize those they would like to own or trade, turning them into digital collectibles. Fans are already eyeing certain Cointelegraph NFT articles on digital marketplace OpenSea, while others are compiling multiple pieces together into nonfungible token collections.

On Oct. 14, Cointelegraph unveiled Cointelegraph Historical — an NFT collection that allows people to select past Cointelegraph articles from its history and mint them as digital collectibles they can own and trade. As of Nov. 23, 500 people who first joined the waitlist now have full access to mint their favorite Cointelegraph articles as NFTs. An additional batch of 500 top referrers can now get their shot at the action. The full public launch will take place on Dec. 1.

Cointelegraph’s Historical Collection was developed with the help of Mintmade. As part of the prelaunch process, Mintmade awarded a token called “Minting Points” to people who carried out specific tasks. These tokens give holders the ability to mint free digital collectible Cointelegraph articles. Otherwise, the cost of article minting starts at $20, with a limited number of each Cointelegraph article available.

Readers interested in Cointelegraph’s NFT product have already started conversing in the Historical section of Cointelegraph’s Discord channel.

Not on the waitlist but want to be ready for Dec. 1? Browse the website and decide which articles would make good digital collectibles beforehand, then get to minting when the full launch begins.
