NFT與圖書館

最近真的是NFT新聞滿天飛,不想看都不行,上次有推薦大家去看老高的說明,但也只能知道個大概,至於怎麼買賣,可以在那些平台或那個鏈發行NFT….等,資訊很雜很亂。3月號的數位時代雜誌做了專題報導,或許可以找時間看一下,看能不能有較全面的理解,目前網路上可以看到其中幾篇文章內容(連結見文末)。

數位時代2020年3月號

在還沒看到這期內容前,個人目前單就NFT的了解是:

  1. NFT的發展還在很早期階段,它的發展前景和商業機制都還未明,而且有些問題仍待解決,各位可以看看曲建仲博士的說明。
  2. NFT之所以引人注目,其中一個重要原因是許多人因此賺了好幾桶金。除了增值跟收藏外,目前還看不出有什麼實際用途的NFT通常都與實體產品做連結,例如連鎖速食「頂呱呱」所推出的NFT,購買持有者可以獲得餐券或終身8折的黑卡等優惠[4]
  3. 或許您有會興趣音樂創作者、數位藝術策展人是如何看待NFT的,感覺對他們比較有利

最後要回到本文的標題,那NFT對圖書館來說又會有什麼影響呢? 稍微Google一下,資料不太多:

Online Searcher這篇先強調Blockchain(區塊鏈) 技術的應用,然後再談NFT的應用[5]

Blockchain and decentralized protocols are slinking their way into library systems. Because decentralized records allow for instant verification, open datasets, and frictionless collaborations, many libraries are investigating blockchain tools to streamline their day-to-day processes. One relevant example is the concept of a decentralized library card, which can authenticate a user across a consortium or multiple library systems. Such models allow patrons to enjoy the full benefits of their library card without being bound by geography. Additionally, a decentralized library system is better equipped to serve portions of the population facing homelessness or displacement.

Blockchain speculation in the world of libraries is all well and good, but how will NFTs play a role in the do main? For one, libraries taking advantage of non-fungible assets will have a new way to host and present their collections. Unique pieces of local history, online journals, and patron collaborations all benefit from tokenization.

Furthermore, a library with a knack for online program ming can use NFTs to unlock exclusive content for visitors. Donors can ditch check writing and place a bid on one of the items up for sale in their library’s NFT auction. As more platforms continue to grow, minting (the process of creating an NFT and hosting it online) an NFT and putting it up for auction may soon become standard practice for library boards seeking to merge fundraising events with memorable community outreach programs.

Through the Looking Glass: Non-Fungible Tokens & Libraries 這篇則從圖書館的日常作業去推想應用NFT的可能性,例如以購書流通為例,圖書館可以購買NFT,取得一些數位物件的所有權後,再讓讀者借出。像這樣去思考每項工作,但結果不見得都可行,大家可以去看一下原文[6]

 

最後再補充一個公視P#新聞實驗室介紹NFT的影片,也值得看一看。
