One thing I have been wondering about for a good while is how NFTs might have a role to play in Shell Protocol. Our goal is to create the internet monetary system, and to be money. Money has a feel, it has an aesthetic. With our protocol, we aim to create something that can transcend the limitations of the monetary system as we currently know it. Therefore we must create an aesthetic that can shine a new light on this concept of a monetary system. That’s why we are called the Shell Protocol - the oldest form of money is now the newest.
An idea I’ve liked recently is that the Shell DAO, amongst its varied other duties, might manage a single NFT that captures what Shell Protocol offers to the people. That NFT would be something like a bill face, or a treasury bill. But imbued with the aesthetic of Shell Protocol. Then, our NFT could be used the way various NFTs might be used in the future - positioned in this or that gallery/installation, knowing it as the official thing itself.
Here are some inspirations from the past:
