What's Momentous?

Momentous is Social Minting. With Momentous you can mint all of life's great moments as well as follow and share in the moments of the people around you that you admire. Our platform allows you to mint Ethereum ERC-721 NFTs directly, for free. We utilize technology from ImmutableX and StarkWare that allows for gasless minting on Ethereum Layer 2.

What's an NFT?

An NFT is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, which can be sold and traded. The NFT can be associated with a particular digital or physical asset (such as a file or a physical object) and a license to use the asset for a specified purpose. NFTs (and the associated license to use, copy or display the underlying asset) can be traded and sold on digital markets.

NFTs function like crypto tokens, but, unlike crypto currencies like Bitcoin, NFTs are not mutually interchangeable, so not fungible. While all bitcoins are equal, each NFT may represent a different underlying asset and thus have a different value. NFTs are created when blockchains string records of cryptographic hash, a set of characters identifying a set of data, onto previous records therefore creating a chain of identifiable data blocks. This crypto transaction process ensures the authentication of each digital file by providing a digital signature that is used to track NFT ownership. However, data links that point to details like where the art is stored can die.

What's Social Minting?

Social Minting is the idea of minting all of life's great moments as Ethereum NFTs. This is as opposed to storing it on your own hard drive, cloud, or device. Because NFTs are permanent, there is no fear of losing these moments. And because the entire Ethereum ecosystem is open to everyone, you can share these moments with anyone. Making it a truly social experience that you own!
