Dedicate a Galaxy

... or a nebula, or a star cluster, or a super bright star
We are now offering the opportunity to dedicate all kinds of objects, including exceptional stars. Those stars are some of the brightest or most notable in the night sky, that are not in our regular naming process.
Unlike many other star registers, we will give away these objects only once! Our unique Stellar Smart Contract will guarantee the uniqueness on Staracle with an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain.

Includes tradeable NFT
This is a fun project! Remember that nobody can ever own a celestial object, and no star register will allow you to name a star so it is accepted by the scientific community. We cannot give away those objects and their NFTs for free because they would be gone within minutes. The more exceptional the object, the more expensive it will be.
20% of the price is donated to charities. Support Staracle, and become part of our NFT universe today!

What is a Non-Fungible Token?

NFT icon
A Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is a digital asset, a proof-of-ownership documented in the Ethereum blockchain. An NFT always belongs to a ctypto wallet, so the owner of the crypto wallet owns the NFT. Being a digital asset, NFTs can be transferred or sold to other crypto wallets by the owner.
All our NTFs are documented using the Staracle Stellar Smart Contract in the Ethereum blockchain, which complies with the ERC721 standard for Non-Fungible Tokens. This makes our NFTs tradeable on platforms like opensea.io.
NFTs have gained popularity over the past years, with the first Tweet sold as and NFT, and many NFT-based digital art projects.

Why choose a Staracle NFT?

%%TI_NFTUNIQUESTONE%%
At Staracle, we carefully designed the Staracle Stellar Smart Contract which hosts the NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. It is the only Smart Contract and token collection that assigns individual NFTs to all our catalog stars and deep-sky objects in a structured way such that no star or object can be assigned more than once. This makes our NFT collection very unique. Moreover, every NFT supports our free star naming service for everybody to enjoy at no cost.
In fact, it is so unique that you can trade your NFT with someone else, since it is based on the ERC721 Non-Fungible Token standard.

NFT for your named stars

NFT icon
At Staracle, all stars are unique. We never give away the same star twice (while many other star naming services do). A Non-Fungible Token is a wonderful way to underline the uniqueness of your star and document it in the Ethereum blockchain. This way, you will have an ever lasting certificate.
You can obtain the NFT after you named your star on Staracle.com. Simply visit your star's profile page and choose the NFT tab. All you need is an Ethereum wallet and the Metamask browser extension for Firefox or Chrome. Payments can only be made in Ether via your crypto wallet.

NFTs for astronomical objects and super-bright stars

NFT icon
None of the stars you can name at Staracle is visible with the naked eye. The reason is simple: There are simply not enough of them. While other star naming services give away the same bright stars over and over again, it is important to us that all our stars are unique. Therefore, it is not possible to name those stars at Staracle.
However, you can now purchase the NFT for many bright and super-bright stars. This does not mean that you own the star, since no one can actually own a star. But it brings you as close to owning it as possible by documenting the NFT in the Staracle Stellar Smart Contract in the Ethereum blockchain, and subsequently owning the NFT.
NFT icon Moreover, you can purchase the NFT for many interstellar objects, such as the famous Orion nebula. All our NFTs are digital assets and compliant with the ERC721 standard. They can be traded on platforms like opensea.io. If you purchase an NFT on such a platform, the NFT ownership will be reflected on Staracle automatically.

Will I own the star or astronomical object?

No, it is not possible to own a star or astronomical object. But our Staracle Stellar Smart Contract brings you as close to it as possible by uniquely documenting the corresponding NFT in the blockchain. You will own the NFT, and it is impossible to issue an NFT twice, making the NFT a unique digital asset.

Unique Non-Fungible Token Structure

Every NFT is represented by a unique token identifier. This token identifier is not a random number. Instead, it follows a well-defined structure to clearly and uniquely identify a celestial object. You will not find that elsewhere, since all our stars and objects are given away only once.
Let's have a look at the token of Aldebaran, the brightest star in the constellation Bull:
Token Structure
The token consists of the following elements:
