Frequently asked questions

FAQs

What is an NFT?

An NFT (non-fungible token) is a unique digital item stored on a blockchain. NFTs can represent almost anything, and serve as a digital record of ownership.

It’s important to understand the “non-fungible” part of “non-fungible token.” When an item is fungible, it means it’s interchangeable with another of the same item. A classic example is a $1 dollar bill: you could swap dollars with someone and you’d both still have $1.

Non-fungible, on the other hand, means the item is totally unique, and therefore has its own unique value. For example, two cars of the same make and model might have different values based on how many miles are on the odometer, their accident records, or if it was previously owned by a celebrity. 

How do NFTs work?

NFTs operate on blockchain technology. The blockchain is basically a large, digital, public record. The most popular blockchains are distributed across many nodes (read: people’s computers), which is why you’ll hear them described as “decentralized.” 

So instead of a central company-owned server, the blockchain is distributed across a peer-to-peer network. Not only does this ensure that the blockchain remains immutable, it also allows the node operators to earn money, instead of a single company. Because the blockchain records and preserves history, it is uniquely positioned to transform provable authenticity and digital ownership.

When someone creates, transfers, buys, sells, or otherwise does something with an NFT, that all gets recorded on the blockchain. This is what enables authentication. 

This record serves as a permanent statement of authenticity that can be viewed or accessed by anyone. Today, when you buy a piece of art or a collector's item, it typically comes with a paper certificate of authenticity, which you must then keep track of forever. It is easily forgotten, lost or destroyed, creating a very fragile system for authenticity. Blockchain’s offer a simple and more secure solution to this long standing issue of proving authenticity.

Let’s say you want to buy a piece of artwork from Tyler Hobbs. With NFTs, you can see the entire history of that piece, all the past owners, every sale, all the way back to Hobbs’ original creation of the piece. Without NFTs, you wouldn’t know if you were buying the real piece or just a really good fake.

What are Pancho Villa’s Money NFTs?

Pancho Villa’s Money NFTs are Digital Collectibles and Real-World Asset NFTs. Photographs of the over-a-century old bills, that grant shared ownership of the real-world collectible item.

What's a Real-World asset NFT?

NFTs used to represent ownership of physical products. For example, an NFT could be used as a certificate of authenticity for a piece of fine art or in this case a collectible antique. This would allow the owner to prove ownership and authenticity of the physical item, while also allowing the item to be tracked and recorded on the blockchain.

Pancho Villa’s Money NFTs are considered Real-World Asset NFTs since each token grants a 1% ownership of the real-world collectible item.

What's the Real-World Pancho Villa's Money?

Pancho Villa's Money is a real paper money currency created by Pancho Villa in 1913 to pay for supplies and soldiers during the Mexican Revolution. It was accepted as currency by both Mexican and American banks, on Pancho Villa’s guarantee.

Most of these bills have been lost to history and the few surviving ones are considered valuable collectible items. The Pancho Villa company owns and has custody of all of the bills presented in the Pancho Villa’s Money NFT collection.

How can I buy a Pancho Villa NFT?

You can buy and sell Pancho Villa NFTs using wrapped ETH (cryptocurrency) on the Polygon network. Pancho Villa NFTs are minted on Polygon, this enables transactions to be almost gas-fee free.

1. Purchase ETH on a crypto exchange (such as coinbase)
Because most NFTs are sold and bought using cryptocurrency, you’ll need some cryptocurrency (such as ETH).

2. Set up a Crypto Wallet (such as coinbase wallet or metamask)
You’ll need a crypto wallet to store your cryptocurrency if you do not already have one.

3. Transfer your cryptocurrency to your crypto wallet. Think of it as a digital checking account that stores and transfers your cryptocurrency. Wrapped ETH is the token needed to trade in our marketplace, so you’ll need to have ETH in your wallet to buy NFTs.

4. Switch your wallet network to Polygon. The first time you interact with a Polygon-enabled website, your wallet will ask you to add Polygon to your list of networks. This will not cost gas and you can always switch back at the switch of a button. When you first switch to the Polygon network, your wallet balance shows 0. Don’t get scared, that’s because you haven’t bridged any tokens to Polygon. Your balance is still there on Mainnet Ethereum. 

5. Bridge ETH to Polygon.
You’ll need to transfer your ETH from the Ethereum network to the Polygon network on your wallet, converting ETH to WETH (Wrapped ETH). First, on your wallet, select the Bridge icon. Second, select the networks you’d like to bridge between (Ethereum to Polygon). Third, select the assets you would like to bridge (ETH to WETH). Lastly, enter the amount of the asset you would like to bridge and follow the prompt to complete the bridge. This will cost a one-time gas fee, but after that, you’re on Polygon, so gas is basically free!

6. Connect your wallet to the Pancho Villa NFTs marketplace.
Once connected, you can start browsing the marketplace’s NFT collection and make a purchase.
