‘Star Wars Day’ just passed us on May the 4th, 2021. The date is a play on the famous words ‘May The Force Be With You,’ a line that has been iconic now for several decades. It is amazing to think that the first film simply titled ‘Star Wars’ came out all the way back in 1977, and over the years, nearly every generation grew up with its respective version of the franchise, which is still ongoing to this very day.
It would make sense then for there to be various NFTs (non-fungible tokens) based on the popular franchise, and in celebration of ‘Star Wars Day,’ users can now purchase and own over 800 collectibles, most if not all of which are limited edition. These can be purchased via the Starcoll NFT marketplace as the sales had begun yesterday and are still continuing as of the time of this writing.
NFTs released on QAN
The aforementioned Star Wars NFT collectibles are set to be released on the QAN Quantum resistant blockchain. The QANplatform is a hybrid blockchain-based platform that is also quantum-resistant in nature. Its primary purpose is being able to run various business-related processes as well as constructing decentralized apps (dApps). It utilizes blockchain technology to accomplish this and prides itself in being able to complete its processes and functions in 5 minutes or less.
The aforementioned Star Wars NFTs will hence be released on QAN and are set to also include original goods and items from authentic shooting scenes, according to Starcoll. Keeping with the tradition of ‘Star Wars Day,’ registration had begun yesterday on May 4th, 2021.
The auction included several limited-edition items such as a Ralph McQuarrie signed version of the helmet worn by Darth Vader (with the bid beginning at $19,999), a Harrison Ford (Han Solo) signed edition of the iconic Millennium Falcon spaceship (with the bid starting at $9,999), statues based on Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi, lightsaber replicas and more.
NFT security not taken lightly
The Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of QANplatform, Johann Polecsak, claimed that many institutions and individuals often tend to neglect NFT security. He added that very few if any, people are willing to discuss the glaring issues related to cybersecurity and the various pain points prevalent within the NFT infrastructure and ecosystem.
To remedy this issue, Polecsak stated that the QAN blockchain would be providing security for the Starcoll non-fungible tokens, and the metadata along with the information of NFT ownership shall be safely stored on it as well.
