NFT’s allow the majority of PO8 recovered artefacts to live on the blockchain and physically remain in the custody of the PO8 Museum Foundation for continued studies by the archaeology community and to be exhibited in various museums worldwide all while the ownership of the artefact can be from anyone around the world.
