Since 2021, the German Publishers and Booksellers Association's Foundation for Book Culture and the Promotion of Reading has given the German Nonfiction Book Prize to the German Nonfiction Book of the Year. The honor is given to outstanding nonfiction publications that spark social discussion. In collaboration with Creatokia, the German Non-Fiction Book Prize will be awarded as a non-fungible token (NFT) via the blockchain in addition to the physical award. Nonfiction books nominated for the award will also be available as NFTs and Digital Originals in a special digital edition. The German Nonfiction Prize thus investigates the possibilities of the metaverse, a topic that is currently captivating many minds in publishing.
