Today, in 1989, Douglas Engelbart was awarded the MIT Honorary Prize for the invention of the computer mouse. The scientist had to wait 21 years for official recognition.

McDonald’s introduced a series of NFT dishes
McDonald’s French subsidiary tokenized its meals by presenting them in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFT). NFT tokens in the form of Big Macs, Chicken McNuggets, McSunday ice cream, and French fries will be uploaded to OpenSea. A total of 5 copies of each lot will be released. The corporation reported this by posting publication on the social network with the hashtag #McDoNFT.
Interestingly, McDonald’s decided not to sell its NFTs, but to distribute them to fast food lovers as prizes for participating in contests. NTF will play from April 9-13 and April 14-18. The head of the media department of DDB Pierre Guengan said that, if desired, the recipients of these collectible tokens will be able to sell them. But the main idea was to make McDonald’s cooking technology available to the general public.
PS Well, we want to remind you that we still have 2 NFT caps from the second series.
