The following condition report is provided by nameless™.
The hash and all the information about the artwork are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, and therefore cannot be modified. This token was minted May 2021, but the referenced pieces were originally made public in 2014, with a link to the image hosted on the Namecoin network. The token is a very early example of utilizing a blockchain token to identify the provenance of a piece of art. Documents contained within the media bundle hosted on IPFS indicate the date and block location that the Namecoin DNS pointer was set to point to mccoyspace.com, and shows the transactions used at the time to create this trail. To avoid domain squatting, Namecoin was designed to include removal of pointers after 36,000 blocks. Accordingly, this specific Namecoin entry was removed from the system after not being renewed, and was effectively burned from the chain.
This NFT’s data storage security is high. This NFT’s associated media and additional legal and archival JSON encoded data are stored on IPFS.
The NFT’s security follows standard ERC-721 practices. The function, use, and standards compliance are on par with current industry standards.
There are 10% future royalties referenced in the legal disclaimer noted on the linked IPFS archival files, along with an Ethereum address to send the royalties to, however this is not directly enforced at the contract level.
