” Star Trek” creator’s signature is now the first “Living-Eco NFT” with DNA code

  • The signature of Star Trek producer Gene Roddenberry has gone boldly where no Nonfungible token has gone before – into the code for life itself.
  • On Tuesday, that signature was turned into an NFT and implanted into the DNA code of a living bacteria cell – 30 years after the sci-fi legend’s death.
  • Dr. Paul Predki was responsible for encoding the NFT’s digital data into a DNA sequence and then storing that DNA in a naturally self-replicating bacterial cell.
