Austrian Postal Service Releases Crypto Collectible Stamps
The Austrian Post releases a line of 150,000 “crypto stamps,” a set containing a crypto collectible authenticator and a stamp that can be used for actual mail.
According to the press release, the so-dubbed “crypto stamp” is the first stamp in the world to be authenticated via blockchain technology. The postal service has reportedly issued 150,000 copies sold at € 6.90 apiece.
When purchased, the stamp set comes in two parts. As pictured below, the left part, which is stylized with a unicorn associated with Ethereum, functions as a standard stamp that can be used to send mail. The right section, on the other hand, contains the credentials used to authenticate the crypto collectible via blockchain.
