This service is giving the blockchain community a chance to create personalized Valentine’s Day cards and turn them into NFTs on the Polygon blockchain.
Tallinn, Feb. 11, 2022 — Mintmade, the upcoming tokenization platform, has launched a special project to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. Starting from Feb. 11, users will be able to mint a pair of custom NFTs with their and their partner’s names on it. These NFTs will be immediately available on every marketplace and wallet that supports Polygon and the ERC-1155 token standard.
Starting out as a day to celebrate romantic love, friendship and admiration, Valentine’s Day eventually turned into the day that florists, restaurateurs and retailers get a healthy spike in business. According to the National Retail Federation, consumers in the United States will spend an estimated $22 billion on gifts for Valentine’s Day this year.
Every year on Feb. 14, people celebrate by sending messages of love and affection to partners, family and friends. More than 145 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged (not including grade-school classroom exchanges), making Valentine’s Day the second-largest holiday for giving greetings cards.
With the explosion in popularity of NFTs over the past year as the crypto and blockchain sector continues its forward path into the mainstream, it was only a matter of time before Valentine’s Day cards could be tokenized. Now, for expressing feelings in crypto style, Mintmade’s Two seems the way to go.
The service is launching on the Polygon network right before this Valentine’s Day to save users from transaction fees and let them mint personalized NFTs as a way to declare their love. A few MATIC will buy two ERC-1155 tokens representing a personal relationship — one each for the purchaser and their partner. About as romantic as carving out initials on a tree.
Will these tokens become more expensive? Well, probably not. Will these tokens become more valuable? Definitely. But this value will be in the hearts of the people they were minted for, and perhaps their children, who may someday research the history of their parents’ blockchain transactions and discover these NFTs.
So, if you want to impress your partner with some geek romance or onboard them onto the blockchain, here is your solution. But remember that everything published on the blockchain will stay on the blockchain and will be visible for everyone, forever.
“We want this collection to become a place where people come to declare their feelings publicly,” said Mintmade founder Ivan Sokolov, “I hope that blockchain will always be open for all genders and people of all sexual preferences.”
Although Mintmade’s Two is a pop-up service just for the day of lovers, it will stay online after Feb. 14 as a showcase of user-generated NFTs that anyone can launch on Mintmade.
Mintmade, a new tokenization platform from Estonia, aims to provide traditional businesses with a bridge to Web3 infrastructure. The startup offers programmable templates to issue utility-focused NFTs and distribute them through a user-friendly checkout.
