The United States Postal Service (USPS) has recently certified CaseMail as the first blockchain generated ePostage label producer.
The USPS ePostage labels make use of CaseMail’s groundbreaking non-fungible token (NFT) mail technology, making the postage the first in the world to be supported by blockchain.
“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, the founder and CEO of 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.”
The certification by USPS proves that NFTs are more than just tokenized collectibles in the form of artworks, videos clips, and more. The applicability of NFTs is a lot more wide-reaching than we think.
The USPS ePostage labels and the items being mailed are digitally stamped with CaseMail tokens. This enables the data of shipment and mailing history to be recorded on the blockchain, which creates a verifiable chain of custody for digital and physical assets. The privacy of both the sender and recipients can also be protected.
Law firms and legal departments across the US are already using CaseMail’s postal tracking and content verification technology to present certified proof of legal correspondence in court.
Initially, the service is available only to legal professionals and government agencies. During Q2 of 2021, the service will be made globally accessible by forming partnerships with consumer and business services providers. Cryptocurrencies are not required as CaseMail tokens can be bought with standard US currency.
