If you are a millennial, you are not a stranger to collectibles like Beanie Babies , POGS (milk caps), Trading Cards, Yu-Gi-Oh, or even Magic: The Gathering With each collection, both we and our parents, we spent hundreds of dollars buying them, we had them, what did we do it with them? & nbsp; well, some of them actually played with them, but, more often, we put them on our shelves, put them in protective sleeves or we exchanged them with friends .I bet, I'd say that after a while # 39 ;, we stopped using them, just to get them to end up on a shelf or in a box somewhere in our attic or in the basement.

The tak Here we could do what we wanted with them, because we owned them. But do not worry because, despite the technology in which we are now, the collectibles are still in circulation, only in a different form. The world is moving from paper, and when it comes to your most precious assets, you should do it too. However, an important issue to note is how to address the objects we collect, but not necessarily. By evaluating the scale, we have creators and developers on one side, and buyers and consumers on the other side.

So, how can we ensure that this sector does not turn into another passing fad? It starts by recognizing that the collectibles industry is here to stay, and the Blockchain can help them keep them alive.

What are "Digital Collectibles?"

Everyone loves to collect something, whether it be classic cars, autographs, books, stamps and, as discussed above, figurines. For the millennial generation and those born in the 90s, for example, it was POG and Pok & eacute; carte mon . But these "collectibles" are not new to the consumer market.

But, when you listen to the term & nbsp; digital collectibles & nbsp; probably associate companies like & nbsp; CryptoKitties & nbsp; with it. But what are "digital collector's items"? Earning over $ 1.7 billion in 2017 this market is made up of digital objects you have purchased and you have total control – you can keep it or sell it and the only person

Like collectibles traditional, digital collectibles, often referred to as "non-fungible tokens" ( NFT ), are interesting because of its scarcity. Similar to fungible tokens like Bitcoin, Ethereum and some of the largest cryptocurrency projects, NFTs can not be copied, duplicated or reproduced. This in turn reduces the potential for illegal activity, essentially by "marking" the currency or tokens. However, unlike fungal tokens, NFTs are unique in nature & nbsp; because they represent only one resource. I'm & nbsp; distinguishable from one another. For example, think of a limited edition art work or a special edition baseball card. The focus is on the very characteristic of these objects that make it so attractive.

But collectibles are just one method in which NFTs can be used. Other applications of & nbsp; NFT includes verification of the identity of an individual (eg digital passport), flight information (digital air ticket) and authentication of land transactions such as deeds and transfers of securities. All of these are unique because & nbsp; the articles are specific to the owner. Other applications could eventually lead to & nbsp; the migration of our & nbsp; birth certificates and academic credentials on the Blockchain.

With all the crypto-collectible, you will notice that many have an image associated with them, differentiating each other. Take for example CryptoKitties: each asset or "kitty" has a unique appearance and design. With the Blockchain, there can be avatars or stickers that you can collect, which represent the real resource.

3 things that Blockchain technology can do for your collectibles

# 1 – A verifiable chain of custody

L & # 39; you have already heard before and you will hear it again, because it is of paramount importance for any conversation concerning the blockchain technology. The Blockchain revolves around the technology of the distributed ledger ("DLT"), which allows tracking, verifying and recording the goods on an immutable ledger. In simple words, all the attributes associated with NFT can be monitored and authenticated.

Apply this technology to concepts such as land transactions & nbsp; where you have the creation and transfer of real estate shares would be an excellent application . The Blockchain could essentially replace the old recording systems.

# 2 – Single domain on a massive distribution network

As I said, NFTs can be owned entirely by one person, making it impossible to separate and / or divide them. But one man's trash is another man's treasure. When it comes to filling our homes and online libraries with new estates, people are increasingly in need of possessing scarce or unusual things. It is no longer a matter of delivering goods to nearby places. Rather, these assets can be bought and purchased from anywhere in the world, making the distribution much larger and much larger.

# 3 – Strengthening our constitutional right to create and develop

Under the Intellectual Property Clause of the Constitution of the United States, the Congress has the power to "promote the advancement of science and the useful arts, ensuring for a limited period to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries." As a source of congressional power to enforce legislation governing author's rights and patents, this too can be extended to digital works .

The Blockchain only amplifies the meaning of this provision, which provides a more transparent medium in which authors, inventors and artists can be recognized for their work, but also have them protected by digital certificates on an encrypted network. It is no different from a software vendor like Microsoft, attaching its digital certificate to its line Office & nbsp; for authenticity. Furthermore, by recognizing the digital overlap for works to be distributed on a massive scale or on a limited basis, the creators of these works may have the opportunity to profit from special works or limited editions due to the introduction of limited versions of tokens. [19659003] What is it worth collecting for the future?

So, I did a bit of digging and I arrived with my three best projects to keep an eye out for your future collections.

# 1 -MLB Crypto

Back in July, Major League Baseball ("MLB") announced that he is bringing digital collectibles to the Ethereum Blockchain. The games company blockchain, Lucid Sight, is launching MLB Crypto Baseball to DApp, through a licensing agreement with the ; MLB. Although this is not necessarily at stake with baseball space, MLB's executive vice president of games and new business ventures, Kenny Gersh, stated that MLB has long observed cryptocurrency and previously had refused other ideas before accepting the license agreement with Lucid Sight.

"We have been talking bitcoin a long time ago and if we should accept it as payment for MLB.tv and some of our other products, and we have not opted for" Gersh said. "At the end of the day we decided that it is not our business, we are not in the business of speculation, we take care of delivering baseball to the fans, so this game is a more interesting intersection of blockchain technology and what we do. "

This is exciting for fans because they will have the opportunity to pay in ether, buying digital avatars linked to specific moments in recent games. They are therefore able to sell those items, or in some cases, to earn prizes and stickers.

This is another great move in the sports space, as at the start of this summer, the NBA announced the Sacramento Kings [19659014] & nbsp; also bringing their ideas to the Ethchaum Blockchain. Sports fans stay tuned

# 2 -GameDex

Like other collectables in space, GameDex & nbsp; It is an emerging project, in particular it refers to fantasy creatures, digital pets and sports cards. While it was still in the & nbsp; the initial stages, the company told me that first they will pay attention to their platform to the most popular and retro collectibles, such as Pok & eacute; mon, Magic: The Gathering, FIFA Ultimate and others.

his collector's items will be traded against their native token, GDX. The platform design has names that were previously associated with Facebook, Microsoft, Twitch and Sony, providing the necessary skills and knowledge on how to make their platform a feasible and adaptable digital infrastructure. With an interesting combination of team members, this is a project to be sure to keep an eye on

# 3 -CryptoCountries

If you are a traveler like me, with wanderlust integrated into your bones, you'll have fun with this project. & nbsp; CryptoCountries allows you to digitally become the owner of any state in the United States or any other country in the world. This DApp works like a & nbsp; interactive game & nbsp; which allows the user to buy and own countries as "smart contracts" on Ethereum's Blockchain. Once you acquire a state or a nation, take possession of that nation and automatically increase the price. It's like the modern update of & nbsp; Rollercoaster Tycoon & nbsp; o & nbsp; Sims City & nbsp; style atmosphere. The interesting part is when users wishing to buy or claim a territory expect to pay twice the amount that the previous owner bought for the country: if another user is willing to pay double, the current owner has no say in the transaction and must sell their country. An interesting concept.
