What are Non-Fungible Tokens?
Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are tokens that cannot be funged. Many popular NFT collections are text files that point to some guy’s server somewhere; sometimes these servers have pictures on them, sometimes they don’t. This is kinda silly, however; our Jumpin’ Josiah NFTs are the ACTUAL PICTURES that you can download and have, thus cutting out the unnecessary step of having to waste a metric ton of carbon emissions to prove it.
You might ask: “How are these still Non-Fungible Tokens, then?” — This is a very good question. Try to funge them; see what happens.
What is the "Jumpin' Josiah" Tech Stack?
In 1892, our founder, Josiah Lamp, commissioned a set of lithography plates to commemorate his favorite outfits of that Summer. Only the finest limestone from the heart of Italy was used and nothing but the purest Bavarian oils were permitted to grace its surface. Once the plate for each article of clothing was etched, they were overlayed to show Josiah all the possible accessories that he could wear together, and then each was promptly destroyed. Therefore, each final lithograph is unique. (The original lithographers themselves never even produced another work for any other client, died shortly under varying and mysterious circumstances, and the printing shop itself was bought by the Union Square Lamp Company and concerted into a decorative Koi pond.)
What is the Value of a "Jumpin' Josiah" NFT?
The value of of every Jumpin’ Josiah is determined purely by what The Market is willing to pay. It is rumored that branches of the House of Habsburg have been impoverished by their pursuit, while paupers on the other side of the world have lined their hovels with Jumpin’ Josiahs for insulation.
