We released a bounty for choosing 4 philosophical papers on Art, Philosophy, Culture, and/or Technology, and mint them as NFTs, in order to stimulate the philosophers to use the blockchain and the development of NFTs from writing material. We’ve chosen the papers through telegram and we confirmed it on astro.

We minted 4 NFTs (50 copies each, half for the dao) from the chosen papers, with royalties and revenues divided between the philosophers and the dao. Each writer received 100 usd in near.
