Imagine transforming your scientific research into unique, tradable, and collectible items on the blockchain.
That's precisely what minting an NFT (non-fungible token) offers you. It's a fascinating way to contribute to the open science movement by turning your scientific artifacts into NFTs. By doing so, you not only make your knowledge readily available to the wider scientific community but also protect your intellectual property.
With ScieNFT, the possibilities are endless. You can mint a diverse range of digital creations as NFTs, including:
- Research notes
- Preprints of papers
- Previously published papers
- Captivating videos
- Intriguing negative results
- Raw data
- Scientific Artifacts
Our platform is your gateway to showcasing your scientific journey in an innovative and engaging manner.
The process of minting an NFT involves creating a digital token that represents your digital asset, making it one-of-a-kind and verifiable on the blockchain. This adds value and allows your work to be bought, sold, and traded in the growing NFT market.
When you mint an NFT on our platform, this NFT is not immediately added to our marketplace. Instead, it joins our open-access library, becoming viewable to anyone with an internet connection. This information is securely and permanently stored on the blockchain, along with information about who minted the NFT, what collaborators worked on the asset, who owns the asset, and the date and time of minting. Because of the nature of blockchain technology, this information cannot be erased or changed. That makes minting your assets as NFTs a great way for you to establish ownership of your ideas and a timeline for scientific thought. This enables you to prove the priority of your work and for our platform to become a permanent record of the scientific conversation.
If you choose to add your NFT to our marketplace, you have the ability to customize the parameters for the exact rights that are included within the NFT that is being sold, giving you control over what you put on the market. You also have the ability to customize.
Finally, NFTs provide artists and creators with new opportunities to earn royalties and maintain control over their work. When minting an NFT on SCIENFT, you can set a royalty percentage to be paid whenever your NFT is resold in the future.
