The first digital NFT stamps of BotswanaPost was released on stampsdaq.com on December 7th, 2022. The new stamps feature a total of five (5) stamps from the historic series “Five Decades’ Favorite Stamps,” which were issued by BotswanaPost in 2016 illustrating themes that reveal Botswana’s environmental, cultural and historical heritage.
The collectors of these digital stamps will have a superior benefit compared to the owners of physical postage stamps issued in the past that is a lifetime opportunity to win one or several unique annual real travel experiences to visit Botswana and truly enjoy its beauty, hospitality and spirit!
“From the earliest days of Botswana’s Independence, the stamp-issuing program has always been guided by Philatelists of international repute, working with the Stamp Advisory Committee to ensure that themes depicted on the stamps reflect Botswana in the most appropriate manner to the international community of stamp-collectors, highlighting the tradition, culture, history and environment of Botswana,” said Mr. Cornelius Ramatlhakwane, BotswanaPost Chief Executive Officer. “That’s why we have chosen for our first NFT stamp issue this historic set from 2016 – the 5 best stamps of the five decades of our independence.”
BotswanaPost is offering its dedicated collectors real life benefits in addition to traditional collectable values like authentic art and rarity. This is a paradigm shifting experience for stamps collectors. In short, for every 10 full points in the Country Collection Score, a collector gets a lifetime draw ticket to win 1 of the 4 annual exclusive trips to experience breath taking natural beauties of the amazing country of Botswana.
“Travel with Stamps” has always been virtual for the philatelists, in reality all of them would love the opportunity to travel to those places they mentally visit when going through their stamp collections. Through this offering, it is possible for them.
Botswana is a jewel on the map of touristic destinations and we offer an excellent opportunity to become a digital stamp collector on Stampsdaq and create many travel opportunities for a collector’s future.”
The new NFT stamps will be minted on Polygon blockchain in five (5) rarity tiers – Common (10 000), Rare (1000), Super Rare (100), Ultra Rare (10) and Unique (1), each with unique digital art animations. Collectors worldwide will be able to buy the stamps using both traditional payment methods (credit/debit cards) and cryptocurrencies like MATIC, BTC, ETH, USDT, USDC, DASH, etc.
