Amongst the many artistic and cultural landmarks in Venice, the Bridge of Sighs is one of the most popular. Antonio Contin made la Ponte Dei Sospiri, as it is called elegantly in Italian, in the 16th century. The name “Bridge of Sighs” is attributed to the "sigh of despair and depression", originating from the Venetian prisoners that used to sigh when seeing the outside world for the last time before being taken to their cells. It is perhaps the biggest tourist attraction in Venice, and a myth says that when a couple crosses the Bridge of Sighs, their love will last forever.
Using the IPFS technology, Etherland is connecting physical real estate and world places' data with a digital layer built on the Ethereum Blockchain. This virtual layer, or Etherland's Earth Metaverse, is displaying unique identity tokens for every real estate and place on Earth in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens named "Land ID".
Each NFT representing a real place, also grants owners the control over the information linked to their token and stored on the IPFS network. On this Metaverse, users can use cryptocurrencies to buy, register, claim, create, promote, verify and monetize their Land ID tokens. Anyone is free to contribute in building the Etherland's Earth Metaverse
