What is an NFT?
NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token”, which represents a unique digital token that uses “blockchain” technology to prove ownership of the token, it can be bought, transferred and sold. These tokens represent a digital contract so they can represent virtually anything. Until now NFTs are associated with a digital image that can be used as a profile picture or that can be collected. However, there is a wide variety of uses that nfts can provide, such as:
Digital art (real or digital painting, photography, video), access to video games, access to metaverses or virtual worlds, exchange for a physical object, right to virtual or live experiences, representation of the action of a company that can give income or dividends, tickets for concerts or virtual concerts, web domains, memberships, among many other uses that we will see later since the world is still discovering the only ways in which they can be used.
Why buy an NFT? o What opportunity do NFTs present?
Possession of an NFT can provide you with access to experiences, goods and services in the real world and in the virtual world, in addition to being a digital asset which can be bought, transferred or sold.
What is blockchain? and Why will we use the Solana blockchain?
Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets across a business network. The first blockchain network was Bitcoin and today there are many both public and private.
In short, blockchain technology is the most reliable network today and is the most advanced shared accounting system in humanity. In this way, generating NFTs within a blockchain provides certainty and infrastructure for their future development.
Currently the main blockchain networks that host smart contracts and NFTs are: Ethereum and Solana. The Solana blockchain uses a very advanced consensus protocol, which has made it currently the fastest, cheapest blockchain and the one with the best user interface. We chose this blockchain as it features the best infrastructure in terms of low cost, user experience, and technological development.

What is 1000 Caguamas and why was Don Caguamo NFT created?
1000 caguamas is your preferred caguamería, a space where you can come to have an ice-cold beer (“cagua”) and eat a real aguachile, while supporting an ecological cause.
Since our beginnings, 10 years ago, at @1000Caguamas, for every beer sold, we donate $5 pesos for the conservation of sea turtles in Mexico.
We are called @1000Caguamas because only 1 in 1000 sea turtles make it to adulthood.
We want to help Mexico's sea turtles find their way to a better future, leaving behind the dangers that today make them an endangered species.
We are located in Mexico, with 8 different points of sale and growing. We are currently in the cities of Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta, and by the end of the year we will be present in 3 more states.
Throughout these 10 years we have supported different organizations for the conservation of sea turtles. We currently have our own foundation: "FUNDACIÓN POR LAS CAGUAMAS A.C." and we collaborate with 7 turtle camps in Mexico through an agreement with CONANP.
And what is our dream?
After 10 years supporting different projects for the conservation of sea turtles, a new dream arises, to build our own turtle camp, La Aldea @1000 Caguamas, and to be the largest and coolest community caguamera in the world.
