Our Museum creates collectibles in NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) format based on traditional Philately. The stamps used for this purpose are real and original and belong to our own collection from more than 100 countries. Each NFT is unique and is the digital representation of a real stamp that is part of our collection.
History of Philately
The stamp, postage stamp or stamp is a small rectangular or square piece of paper that is pasted on the envelopes and serves as proof of prior payment for shipments made by mail.
Although at present it seems like an unimportant effort, given that we have emails, social networks and even instant messaging at a global level, the UPU (Universal Postal Union) at the time managed to standardize the international rules for the exchange of letters and packages at a time record: by the end of the 19th century all the countries of the world, except China, complied with these regulations.

What was the world's first postage stamp?
The world's first postage stamp was Queen Victoria's Penny Black (1840), produced by a British professor named Rowland Hill who simply made a profile of the queen with the word Postage at the top and the words OnePenny (1 penny) in the lower margin and has a current market value of more than two billion dollars.
World Postage Stamp Day: how did it originate and what is the history of the first stamp?
Starting in 1935, every January 7, World Postage Stamp Day is celebrated. It all started in Austria with the anniversary of Heinrich von Stephan (1831-1897), postmaster general of the German Empire, who in 1874 convened the first International Congress of Post Offices in Bern, Switzerland, in which 22 states created the Postal Union Universal (UPU).
