PDT

Provenance and Documentation Tokens

We created Provenance and Documentation Tokens (PDT's) to enhance the value of real-world items.

When we first started developing the goals and strategy for seemynft.page (SMNP) many folks came to us with ideas related to items they had access to or owned. People wanted to join the new, soon to be dominant, NFT craze.

Most of the conversations went something like this…"Hey I have this cool (insert name of whatever cool thing you might own) and I want to make an NFT out of it".

And we would reply kind of like this…."Well, that IS a cool thing you have there but a picture of it, unless you are Jack Dorsey it probably is not going to attract much attention; but your thing is indeed cool, and valuable in and of itself."

Since we were all about finding use cases for NFTs that solved real world problems in useful ways, and, after about 100 of those above-mentioned conversations…the proverbial light bulb went off. SPOILER! This is where PDT’s come in to save the day!

We would use NFTs to make the real-world items more valuable by "telling their story". Since on SMNP we can create, and vault anything that exists as a web page we began making custom NFT pages. To document these valuable real-world items, using images, video, and text; we help potential buyers truly understand the history of the item, where it came from, why it is important and more! The PDT is then transferred with the physical item to the new owner. The PDT told the story, so the current and future owners didn't need to. The documented physical item was indeed what it was purported to be!

So, if George Washington's dentures were sold with a PDT, the new owners would know that they were not made of wood, and indeed were made of ivory False Teeth · George Washington's Mount Vernon.
