Elon Musk and NFT
Cryptocurrency videos and images of businessman Elon Musk have appeared on the military's YouTube channel, while its official Twitter account has retweeted a number of posts that appear to be NFT-related.
The NFT, for "non-fungible token" or non-fungible token, is a digital format that allows any virtual object (image, animation, video, piece of music, etc.) to be associated with a certificate of authenticity recorded on a " blockchain”, the technology that serves as the basis in particular for cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.
The British army apologized on Twitter for the "temporary interruption" of its content, and announced the resumption of normal service of its account.
“We will conduct a full investigation and learn from this incident,” she said.
