What are digital collectibles?

Digital collectibles are technology which can be used by artists, teams and brands to create unique, one-of-a-kind tokens for fans and consumers. Digital collectibles can take on any form: a piece of art, a unique pin, token card or image, an embedded video, audio or animation.

A digital collectible is similar to a physical collectible, but in digital format. Like a physical collectible, a digital collectible is distinguished and unique. To ensure each digital collectible’s unique authenticity, blockchain technology is used to demonstrate rights ownership and authenticity. This is similar to receiving a "certificate of authenticity" with unique physical merchandise like a signed baseball card.

What makes digital collectibles different from physical collectibles?

Physical and digital collectibles have many similar traits, such as strong fan affinity and pride of ownership (otherwise known as “bragging rights” as you show off your collections). However, digital collectibles have many advantages over physical collectibles. This helps to explain the transformation of the collectible space over time and the rapid growth of digital collectibles.

The advantages that digital collectibles have over physical collectibles include:

  • Prevention of Counterfeits - A digital collectible’s authenticity is more reliable and easier to manage. It can be tied to a Non-fungible Token (NFT), which is the digital equivalent of a certificate of authenticity, and solves a lot of issues around fraud that can occur in the physical world.

  • Better Storage and Shipping - A digital collectible is easier to store and ship without wear and tear that can occur with physical collectibles.

  • Better Sharing - A digital collectible has vastly better sharing options if you want to show your collectible or collection to friends, family or the public. You can do so over text, email or a public showcase. You can also present your digital collectible online or in an offline frame that has storage and display capability.

A fan or user can have the same thrill, affinity and enjoyment from owning a digital collectible as owning a physical one, plus all the conveniences of better authenticity, shipping, storage, and sharing.

Tell me more. What are other benefits of my digital collectibles?

In addition to owning your digital collectibles and displaying and sharing them as you want (enjoy the bragging rights!) there are lots of other benefits. Some artists, teams, and brands offer personalized benefits, such as VIP access to a concert or event, or access to unique content. Have fun and be creative and in some cases you may be able to add on-to, customize, or enhance your digital collectible. But you should note that any such changes will be layered enhancements, and will not change the underlying NFT. Additionally, these NFTs are environmentally friendly. Because of our minting on Tezos, we are using 2M times less energy than many other blockchains.

Are my collectibles unique?

Every digital collectible from Sweet or any of Sweet partners or clients is unique, individually-numbered, and trackable on the public blockchain with records of authenticity. It might be unique with only one created, or it might be individually numbered and part of a limited series. Each collectible series is created on the public blockchain, including the total number available. Once created, the series cannot be edited or changed by any party, including Sweet, its partners, or clients. The public blockchain also stores a permanent record of who created it, and every owner.

How can I display my digital collectibles?

You can choose how to display your digital collectibles for your own use and enjoyment and how you want to share them for others to view and enjoy. You can share just one collectible or your full collection. Users can optionally add narrative and other data to each digital collectible, explaining how they obtained the digital collectible and why it’s special to them.

Can I trade or sell my digital collectible?

Digital collectibles by their very nature are intended to be used, displayed and enjoyed. You own the digital collectible and if you want to give it away, gift it, or sell it for whatever reason you can. Exchanging digital collectibles is a great way to engage with others who have the same affinity for the talents and brands that you do.

What is the value of my digital collectible?

A digital collectible’s value is personal, based on your connection with the item you are collecting and how it fits with all your other collectibles both digital and physical. One person might love to have a digital collectible from a specific artist, talent, place or team and have a real affinity, while someone else might not have the same affinity and see no reason to get it, just like with collectibles in the physical world!

You should collect, purchase or trade for a digital collectible for your own personal use and enjoyment. You should not purchase a digital collectible with the expectation of making any profit from its resale as there is no guarantee that you will be able to find a buyer for it or that, even if you are able to find a buyer for it, you will be able to get the same or higher value which you paid for it. Neither Sweet nor any of the talent or brands represented by the digital collectible are undertaking any obligation to support or encourage any price appreciation of any digital collectible.

There are many factors that influence what someone will trade or purchase your digital collectible for, and these are outside of the control of Sweet or any of Sweet’s partners or clients represented on the digital collectible. Examples of factors that influence a buyer’s decision include a potential buyer’s own personal connection or affinity with your unique digital collectible, the general interest in the talent or brand associated with the digital collectible at any given time, the general interest in collectibles overall (both physical and digital), and many other factors.

NFTs/Blockchain Technology

I’ve heard of NFTs. What are they and how are they similar to or different from Bitcoin?

A Non-fungible Token (NFT) is a type of cryptographic token which represents something unique. Non-fungible tokens are not mutually interchangeable and can’t be divided into smaller parts. NFTs can therefore be used as unique digital collectibles. Each NFT has its own unique "immutable data," such as total inventory, artwork, audio files, and other information which can never be changed. In some cases, you may be able to add to, customize, or enhance your digital collectible, but any such changes will be additional enhancements and not change the underlying NFT or digital collectible.

By contrast a Fungible Token like Bitcoin is very different, in that it is divisible into any number of smaller units and it does not matter which unit you own. Each unit is uniform and interchangeable with any other like amount of Bitcoin. This makes fungible tokens useful as a currency.

What blockchain does Sweet use for the McLaren Racing Collective?

For the McLaren Racing Collective, we are using the Tezos standard for NFTs. All of our NFT implementations, regardless of the underlying blockchain standard, will support the same features and user experience, and provide the same benefits of a blockchain-based digital collectible.

What is the Tezos Standard and why is it unique?

Tezos operates a blockchain with a proof-of-stake system. Crucially, this system doesn’t rely on massive computer power. Its demand for electricity is significantly less and it’s far more energy-efficient using appx 2M times less energy than some other types of blockchains.

Is the Sweet App a blockchain wallet?

Yes. Among other things, the Sweet app serves as a blockchain wallet for a user to manage their digital collectibles. The Sweet app and wallet are however specifically designed for digital collectibles. It is not a blockchain wallet that is available for general blockchain tokens like Bitcoin and should not be confused with companies like Coinbase or wallets like blockchain.com that hold all types of crypto blockchain tokens like Bitcoin.

The center “Wallet” tab in the Sweet app displays all of the collectibles you own. Specifically, if you’d like to view your McLaren Racing Collective, visit https://mclarenracingcollective.com/. You can also view your collectibles from a public blockchain explorer website. Clicking on the “Authenticity” link below any owned collectible will display the public blockchain open ledger view of your collectible, so you can be sure you have the real thing! Sweet can support NFTs from multiple NFT compatible blockchains.

What rights do NFT owners have for the digital collectible?

Each Digital Collectible definition has a link to terms and conditions, which determine exactly what rights you have to copy, transfer, display, or otherwise use the various media files that compose the digital collectible. Many NFT publishers don’t take this step and it is unclear what rights an NFT confers on a user if the publisher has not also committed terms and conditions to the blockchain.

Does the holder of a Digital Collectible “own" the artwork or media files?

No. Along with rights information, we also include a copyright notice with our NFTs, and this information along with the terms and conditions is verifiable through the blockchain record. Sweet or our Clients retain the copyright, but the NFT owner is granted certain rights per our Terms and Conditions.

Using the Sweet App

What do digital collectables look like?

Some digital collectibles are cards and coins which you might see in the physical collectibles market, but digital collectibles can go so much further and provide even richer experiences. A digital collectible can take any form and is only limited by the creativity of its creator. Unique collectables (or Non-fungible Tokens) offered by Sweet and our partners and clients can have embedded images, audio or video and other animations. We partner with artists and consumer brands to make truly one-of-a-kind collectibles for your enjoyment.

How do I access my digital collectibles collection?

To access your digital collectibles collection, visit the Sweet App “Wallet” (the center tab on the bottom). From there you can view all your digital collectibles.

Specifically, if you’d like to view your McLaren Racing Collective, visit https://mclarenracingcollective.com/.

Can I access my collectibles outside of the Sweet app? How do I transfer collectibles to my own blockchain wallet?

Please follow instructions in the Sweet app or on mclarenracingcollective.com to submit your information to be eligible to transfer collectibles outside of the platform to your own blockchain wallet. Please note, partners may restrict transfers of some collectibles.

Does my digital collectible give me any ownership rights in McLaren Racing, Sweet or any other entity?

No, owning a digital collectible does not give you any rights to equity or other ownership in Sweet or any Sweet-affiliated clients or partners.
