You might think such an item belongs in a reliquary, but Şentürk is taking a more modern approach: She’s selling a photo of the pancake as an NFT on OpenSea. The minimum bid is 2 ETH (around $2,500); currently, there are zero bids.
But a digital version of the pancake is not enough — the actual item is also included. Şentürk has encased the food item in clear epoxy, which (hopefully) will protect it from growing mold or rotting: a non-fungi token. The physical epoxy disc will be shipped to the winner of the NFT auction. Of course, if someone resells the NFT, there’s no guarantee that the actual pancake will be included in future trades.
