Backup your life with the blockchain

Growing up my family was always moving homes. I've never had somewhere I could really call my own. Like many other people whose families have rented home to home their entire lives, you soon realise how much of a hassle it is to have a lot of belongings. It's why I prefer to throw away a lot of my keepsakes or momentos and while it's nice to be able to look back at something that reminds you of a former time in your life. It soon starts getting impractical. There's no possible way you can hold on to every keepsake you accumulate in your life. You might have visions of sharing some of your favourite memories with your grandkids but most of the time those old drawings, trophies, shirts or whatever other item you find valuable soon get eaten away by the cruel nature of time.
