The first batch of cryptocurrency stamps sold out within five hours last winter. Swiss Post is now launching the second series.
Swiss Post prevailed: a few months ago, 175,000 copies of the Crypto Stamp 1.0 series were sold as fresh as new. Now Swiss Post presents the next collection, with a total circulation of 250,000 copies, in collaboration with the Locarno Film Festival.
Swiss Crypto Stamp 2.0.1 Update
The Summer Collection consists of ten different themes. Each of these crypto stamps comes in two parts. On the one hand, a physical stamp of 9 francs, self-adhesive, to clear postal items. Functionally so a regular postage stamp. If you don’t want to collect, you can tape your package and send it with encryption seal on the way. The real encryption part consists of an NFT (non-breakable token) that comes with the seal.
The NFTs aren’t just photos this time, inspired by a collaboration with the Locarno Film Festival, there are short videos – produced by up-and-coming Swiss filmmakers.
If you want to get your hands on it, you’ll have to hurry. This year, NFTs as videos should make the pool more attractive.

Additional attraction in the form of 11 NFT
Anyone who invests 9 francs and buys Crypto Stamp 2.0 from a series of ten topics can participate in the draw – this is about 11 NFT. Unlike purchasable cryptocurrency stamps, which have a circulation of 25,000 copies each, NFT Number 11 is available in a small version of 50 units. Well withdrawn NFTs can also be collected, kept in the wallet or even sold as scarce.
Can Post Office NFT?
Yes, with the support of the technology partner inacta. The Zug-based company is responsible for creating 250,000 tokens, setting up the smart contract and IT infrastructure for the digital wallet. NFTs are stored on the energy-efficient Polygon blockchain. Inacta, together with its Tokengate project, provided technical support for the first and second batches of Swiss Post crypto stamps.
Christian DiGeorgioPrincipal Consultant at Inacta, also sees Swiss Post’s NFT project as an opportunity to bring the great potential of this technology closer to the general public:
Crypto Stamps opens up a great opportunity to demonstrate the digital transformation and potential of blockchain by using an everyday object and making it tangible to everyone.
Definitely a good move by Swiss Post to convert groups of digitally inexperienced customers into NFTs and wallet holders overnight. As with the first series, Swiss Post once again offers concrete help and guidance on how to use NFT and your own wallet.
