Trading cards have been dragged into the 21st century. With unique assets traded and stored on the blockchain, classic games are taking on a new life.
The way we understand value is changing before our eyes. From breedable kittens to cryptographic stamps, our innate desire to collect is going digital.
The blockchain plays host to a range of collectibles from some of the biggest sporting brands in the world. From soccer to golf, digital assets are changing the way fans interact with their favorites.
Whether it's redeemable rewards or membership NFTs, a rising number of creators and developers are leveraging blockchain-backed tokens to build and support their communities.
QSL Amateur Radio
In amateur radio a QSL is a written comfirmation of a two-way contact through radiocommunication.
In old times confirmation happened by sending QSL cards (similar to postcards). One station would send a QSL card and hope that the other station too would send written confirmation of the contact.
Today, systems are based on digital QSL cards and digitally signed QSL. If the data from both stations match, then they form the proof that the two-way radio contact happened.
This collection is the next innovation, where two-way radio contacts are confirmed through the block chain as non-fungible tokens (NFT). They remain as digital collectibles long after the QSO, in the same spirit that QSL cards did before.
