With the Swiss Crypto Stamp, Swiss Post combines the traditional postage stamp with a digital image, an NFT (non-fungible token). This is mapped in the Polygon blockchain. This means that the crypto stamp can be traded online and it is guaranteed that the ownership and history of the crypto stamp are seamlessly digitally mapped. The miniature sheet contains all the information you need to view your digital image, to ensure that it is on the blockchain, and to transfer the NFT.
The digital crypto stamps come in 13 different designs. Some are more common, while others are much rarer and therefore more coveted. For comparison: there are 65,000 copies of the most common design, and just 50 of the rarest! So one thing is clear: the Swiss Crypto Stamp means collecting, exchanging and trading stamps has gone digital.
The ERC1155 technical standard is used, which is supported by most blockchain applications.
