The United States Postal Service (USPS) certified CaseMail as the first producer of blockchain-generated ePostage labels, CaseMail stated in its latest announcement. CaseMail’s revolutionary non-fungible token (NFT) mail technology is what USPS ePostage labels use to mark the world’s first blockchain-supported postage.
“It’s fitting that the USPS, a historic institution that served as a vanguard during the founding of our country, is at the forefront of this revolution in communications and commerce. CaseMail’s USPS-certified blockchain postage provides additional credibility to the debate about the future of NFTs and the wider adoption of blockchain into everyday life,” said Joe Ruiz, Founder and CEO, CaseMail. “Using NFTs to help protect a process that’s both familiar and important to everyone – mailing a letter or package – helps demystify this important new technology. It is simply postage printed from the blockchain.”
After owning a USPS certification, the CaseMail’s NFT blockchain ePostage labels focus on the practical, real-world application of the popular new technology. The USPS ePostage labels and mailed items receive a digital stamp as CaseMail tokens. Thus, all details of the shipment and mailing history are recorded in a blockchain that draws a verified chain of custody for digital and physical assets. The technology certifies the delivery history and the content, and the chain of custody gets verified cryptographically that promises privacy at both the sender and the receiver’s end.
Some law firms and legal departments across the country are already using CaseMail’s content verification and postal tracking technology to show certified proof of legal correspondence in the US court.
Legal professionals and government agencies will witness the exclusive initial rollout of the services. CaseMail has decided to give global access primarily through integration partnerships with consumer and business services providers in the second half of 2021. It is not important to have cryptocurrencies; the standard US currency can still be used to buy CaseMail tokens.
