One of the most widely known sci-fi writers, Gene Roddenberry, has been encoded in DNA sequences. This is the first time that a living object will exist as an NFT. The implications for this are limited only by your imagination!

Gene Roddenberry Signature Encoded in DNA Becomes First Living NFT

One group of insane geniuses is pushing the frontiers of NFTs in an attempt to boldly go where no man has gone before. Putting the signature of science fiction giant Gene Roddenberry in the DNA sequence of a microbe. All of this is done with the help of blockchain technology.

Gene Roddenberry signed a deal in 1965 that would forever revolutionize science fiction. There was an agreement with Lucille Ball’s Desilu Studios included inside, which provided the funding for the Star Trek franchise’s creation. This signature has been brought back to life 30 years after Gene Roddenberry’s death.

Dr. Paul Predki, a brilliant scientist, has used his enormous brain to construct the first-ever live NFT. Encoding the digital data contained in the token into a DNA sequence is what it boils down to. The DNA is then stored in a naturally self-replicating bacterium cell. The end product is a carbon-positive, living NFT capable of self-replication forever.

Metaplex Studios developed the project, which is on exhibit at Art Basel in Miami. It was built on the Solana blockchain. So, if the Star Trek Funkos weren’t enough Sci-Fi for you, maybe this will. If you’re the kind that can’t maintain a cactus alive, though, you should probably avoid it.
