What are NFT Collectibles and how is Sumo Society Celebrating the Heritage of Sumo Wrestling with Special and Unique Digital Art Sumo Wrestler NFT Collectibles?
NFT Collectibles Background:
An NFT is a Non-Fungible Token. NFTs are cryptographic assets on a blockchain with unique identification codes and metadata that distinguish them from each other. Unlike cryptocurrencies, they cannot be traded or exchanged at equivalency. This differs from fungible tokens like cryptocurrencies, which are identical to each other and, therefore, can serve as a medium for commercial transactions.
NFTs exist in the Web3 world and are based upon a smart contract deployed on a blockchain platform. They contain specific information about an asset like: Rarity, Scarcity, Royalty, Name, Description, Divisibility, Price, and other Traits.
NFTs can be either digital and unique, or they can represent real life items as well like art, music, automobiles, real estate, individual identities, etc.
In short, an NFT is a financial security consisting of digital data stored in a blockchain, a form of distributed ledger. The ownership of an NFT is recorded in the blockchain, and can be transferred by the owner, allowing NFTs to be sold and traded. NFTs typically contain references to digital files such as photos, videos, and audio. For our purposes, our NFTs are the digital collectible Sumo Wrestlers of Sumo Society. Each NFT is unique with its own metadata and all of the associated special information for each Sumo NFT is stored on the Ethereum blockchain and immutable, meaning unchangeable, and available to anyone to ensure transparency and security for the NFT holder and owner.
Sumo Wrestling Background:
SUMO wrestling is a mighty sport where the mightiness of sumo wrestlers gets appreciated through fun sport and culture. The sport is a form of competitive full-contact wrestling where a rikishi (wrestler) attempts to force his opponent out of a circular ring (dohyō) or into touching the ground with any body part other than the soles of his feet (usually by throwing, shoving or pushing him down).
Sumo wrestling originated from the Japanese martial arts known as “gendai budo”. The sport has been in regulation for the span of many centuries, comprising the essence of Japanese history. Sumo wrestling pertains to many ancient rituals, which are also followed even today, such as salt purification. Sumo wrestlers are highly regimented and regulated by the rules of the association, and the wrestlers are recommended to live in a communal training stable along with a prescribed diet and tradition.
