The Museum clarifies in the notice that each NFT will be issued in two copies, one in the hands of the Hermitage itself and the other intended for the buyer.

The NFTs metadata will include the signature of Hermitage Director Mikhail Piotrovsky, the time of signature and the certification that was signed in the Hermitage.

In a statement at the time, Piotrovsky said that NFT makes luxury things more affordable, but at the same time, exclusive.

He added that the Hermitage will continue to explore what digitization can do for the museum.

“On these new technologies, we will base our new experiments,” he said.
