NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a craze that’s hitting every facet of the internet, and cannabis is no exception. I could go into a long explanation of NFTs, but I would rather keep it as simple as possible: An NFT allows you to sell ownership of digital assets. In most cases, it can be thought of as a digital trading card.
There are many different cannabis-related NFT projects and in a future article(s) I plan to outline as many as possible. For now, I want to shine some light on an a personal project called Bongles.
Bongles is a collection of animated pixel bong art. There will be a total of 420 in the collection. Each Bongle is an original piece of art that will never be duplicated or reused.
Owning a Bongle is like owning an artistic piece of glass that can never break. You can also resell a used Bongle which isn’t always so easy to do with an IRL bong. At the end of the day, it is a collectible asset that is fun to own and with so many different animations there is sure to be one that suits your fancy.
Once you purchase the NFT you retain full digital ownership of your color so you are free to transfer, trade, sell, etc. so take a hit and pass it around.
The specs are: 64×64 enlarged to 320×320 gif at 30 frames per second (first 4 are 26 fps). Each Bongle is assigned a hash which is minted onto the Ethereum blockchain for proof of ownership. This way, you can claim without a doubt that you are the owner of a Bongle.
What do you think? Is it worth it to own an NFT? Should digital bongs be a thing? What about other cannabis NFT projects? I would love to hear what you have to say on the subject. Just let me know in the comment section below.
