What benefits are there to collecting digital comics compared to traditional, paper comic books?
Here are a few of the benefits of collecting digital comics compared to paper comics:
1. Environmentally Friendly. By not having to ship a physical product, less Co2 is released into the atmosphere and less waste is produced. By not having to use paper, we're able to reduce the number of trees being harvested to make paper. Having more trees means more Co2 can be cleaned from the atmosphere which can also help reduce global warming.
2. Ability to Collect AND Read. Collectible paper comics are very delicate, and condition is a very large part of what makes a paper comic valuable. Grading can be subjective. You might call the condition of your comic "near mint" and someone else might call it "very fine" ... and the difference in price between the two grades can be substantial.
Over the years, professional grading services have popped up that grade collectible comics and encase them in a tamper resistant, plastic "slab." Once "slabbed," the grade is indisputable, but the comic can never be read again without the risk of damaging the slab, damaging the comic and needing to pay to resubmit the comic to be re-graded and re-slabbed!
With Token Comics, collectible grades are a "rarity attribute" assigned when your NFT is minted! No third party grading service is needed! And because there is no slab, you can always enjoy the intrinsic entertainment value of your comic book, no matter what its collectible grade!
3. Guaranteed Authenticity. Because paper comics are printed without any anti-counterfeiting technology, it is possible for paper comic books to be counterfeited. Our comic book NFTs have built in anti-counterfeiting technology in the form of a unique "policy ID number" that is published on our website, verified with CNFT markets, and can never be duplicated by fraudsters! Make sure you always check and verify the policy ID number before making any purchase!
4. Better Hygene. Germs and viruses can live on the surface of physical items, whether paper or plastic, and can potentially spread disease. Germs cannot attach themselves to a digital comic, making them a safer alternative.
5. Transparency. When paper comics are printed, the actual quantity printed is relatively unknown and impossible to independently verify. Because of this, you never really know how rare a particluar issue might be. With Token Comics, the total quantity minted of every issue is published on the blockchain, with a further breakdown of the population that exists for each grade of that issue!
6. Safe and Convenient Storage of Your Comic Book Collection! Many comic book collectors have come home from college or the military only to discover their childhood comic collection was sold, thrown away, given away, or damaged! That could never happen with your Token Comics collection because it is safely stored on the decentralized Cardano blockchain! This means, as long as you have the seed phrase for your Cardano wallet, even if someone were to throw away your computer, you could restore your wallet and access your collection! Always protect your password and seed phrase! Never share them with anyone else!
7. Theft and Damage Protection - Because your Token Comics collection is safely stored on the Cardano blockchain, you won't have to worry about your comics being stolen during a burglary or being destroyed in a flood or fire! As long as you keep your password and seed phrase safe, your comic book collection will be protected.
8. Worldwide Access. No matter where you are in the world, you'll be able to access, read and even sell your comic books to anyone, no matter where they are in the world
