In France, La Poste enters the sector!

France is full of stamp enthusiasts and collectors. As proof, there were many participants in the Salon philatélique d’automne that started on October 3, 2022. From the first day of the event, which was organized at Espace Champerret in Paris, there was a large number of people. During this event, the participants mainly bought stamps with limited editions. Furthermore, the deputy director of Philaposte made an interesting announcement during a press conference. Indeed, Frédéric Morin announced the launch of NFT stamps.

A newspaper edition The world, reveals that the Post is planning to launch physical stamps related to digital stamps. NFT stamps must be accessible in bulk from February 7, 2023 at 8 euros. They will be based on the Tezos blockchain and available in 100,000 copies. Similarly, a postage stamp with the image of mandela will be launched.

Frédéric Morin explained that the purpose of Philaposte is: “to associate a physical stamp with its duplicate that is recorded in a blockchain for its NFT authenticationHe indicated that each stamp will be unique thanks to the numbering on the Tezos blockchain.

It must be said that Philaposte joins many post offices with this project. Postal services in Austria, Croatia and Switzerland, for example, have been issuing NFT stamps for some time now.

Philaposte’s deputy director indicated that although the new type of stamp is digital, it will retain its artistic dimension. He explained that the intention is to do away with the current barcode stamp design. Frédéric Morin added that Philaposte will follow an approach of launching multiple editions per year for the NFT collection.

In addition, it appears that the collection of digital stamps promotes the promotion of technological innovations. In this regard, the block of 2023 will have micro-perforations. In addition, the sale of NFT stamps will only take place online, on a special site.

Philaposte’s Deputy Director announced that the Post Office is entering the NFT sector by developing unique digital stamps. He made sure to reassure the philatelists by indicating that the authenticity of the stamps will be guaranteed. This NFT stamp project could well modernize traditional philately.
