Why should I immortalize a memory in the form of a NFT?

Often people who are not native to the crypto ecosystem and are not aware of the potential of NFT technology ask this type of question.

Suppose you go to watch a game of your favorite team, and at the exit you can take a selfie with your idol. Would it be wise to transform that memory into NFT?

Those outside of the movement will say no. That the photo is safe on your cell phone, and that failing that if you wanted to “protect” it, there are plenty of cloud storage services you could access if you lost your primary device.

But by saying these kinds of things, they manifest a total misunderstanding of what an NFT really is. An NFT has nothing to do with backup or file storage.

When one decides to transform one’s memory into NFT, what one does is to make a writing on the blockchain, leaving a permanent and immutable record that will live beyond the limits of our understanding.

It is a way of immortalizing the memory, forging an eternal link between your memory and a decentralized computer network that shows that it really happened, and can no longer be changed.

NFTs are excellent ways to immortalize memories, and leave them perhaps for generations to come. It can’t be a selfie with your idol. It can be a video of your child’s first steps, or an audio of their first words.

It could be your grandmother’s voice, or the first letter written to your partner.

What many people wonder, because they may not have the technical knowledge to transform their memories into NFTs, is simply how can I create my own NFTs, if I have zero programming knowledge?

The answer, is through platforms such as immortalizer.io

By logging into immortalizer.io, anyone is able to create their own NFTs with an extremely simple interface that any computer user can understand.

The first step is to choose the piece of multimedia to be immortalized. It can be a photo, a drawing or any image, an audio or a song, or even a video.

Once the part is selected, it can be customized within the app and then start the NFT creation process.

An extremely novel point is that you can choose the blockchain on which the NFT will live, having many alternatives to choose from such as Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, Avalanche, Aurora and Solana.

Transforming NFTs into memories is much more than storage and backup. It is the proof and the unalterable record that something happened, and happened forever.
