In the wild world of NFTs, you can now own an actual colour

Own a colour: images of colours from the Colour Museum

Want to own a colour? Cadbury, Tiffany & Co, and Mattel all do, and now so can you. The NFT boom has seen it all – Banksy burnings, Bored Ape millionaires, trashcan art – but now the Color Museum is offering the chance for us all to own a colour, and make money from the royalties.

The new NFT marketplace, called the Color Museum, is selling 10,000 sRGB (standard red, green, blue) hues and offering each ‘minter’ ownership of the colour.  Whenever an NFT is sold on the marketplace using the same colour hue, the owner earns a percentage of the sale. If this sounds crazy, then catch up on the latest NFT trends and you'll see anything is possible with NFTs.
