Doctors recommend using salt in moderation to limit sodium intake. Sodium is a chemical element discovered in 1807, found in sea waters, thermal springs and mineral deposits. In ancient times it was used as a drug: it was recommended for external use, today this habit has almost completely disappeared.
Man takes it mainly in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl), the well-known table salt, a mixture of sodium and chlorine. The salt that we find on the market and that arrives on our tables is usually white, it can be large or fine, it is odorless but gives flavor to all foods, raw and cooked.
The fine one is more suitable for flavoring substances and solid foods, while the coarse one is recommended for salting liquids, for putting products in salt for salting, to obtain gastronomic crusts (for example the fillet in salt) and to inhibit the deterioration of food from a microbiological point of view.
Salt has built the history of man, made fortunes and built empires, was a precious bargaining chip and wages, not to mention its importance in chemistry and biology, in proverbs and mythology, in physics and literature, in art and religious tradition, as well as in the great culinary art, of course. In ancient Greece, salt became an important bargaining chip in the then flourishing slave trade, while in Rome the soldiers were paid with rations of salt, called "Salarium", from which the current name of the monthly salary derives.
Omero defined salt as "divine substance", while for Platone the salt was "particularly dear to the gods".
This time it was decided to organize an easier contest. The formula consists of two different elements. The contest requires the creation of a molecule in the wallet. You have 7 days to add an element of Sodium (11-Na) and an element of Chlorine (17-Cl) to your wallet.
All those who at the deadline of November 19th 16:00 CEST will have the two elements in their wallet will receive a molecule of "Salt" as a gift. To participate you must leave a comment on this article with your wax address. (The control is manual and therefore keep the two elements for a few hours after the expiration).
The Sodium element has already been distributed with a giveaway, while for chlorine there will be a giveaway tomorrow: the fastest to comment will be rewarded and other users randomly extracted to receive NFTs.
If you don't have the items in your portfolio, you can:
- buy items on the market (I release a few elements every day at low prices)
- arrange a loan with a friend
The supply of the new molecule will be given by the number of winners + 20 NFTs to be gradually added to the market.
The Periodic Table NFT project
The Periodic Table NFT project aims to raise awareness of chemical elements in a modern key, basing the approach on blockchain and Non Fungible Token.
Day after day it will be possible to know the single elements that make up the table, to collect curiosities about each of them and about the table in general.
We are working to be able to learn, in a playful way, also what happens by combining the various elements.
The whole project is based on the collection of NFTs that can be bought on the site https://wax.atomichub.io/market?collection_name=periodicelem&order=desc&sort=created&symbol=WAX or by participating in simple giveaways published on publish0x.
