You would probably die if you literally gave away your heart, but your soul seems to be a different story. Throughout history there have been claims and stories of people selling their souls, from Homer Simpson selling his soul for a donut, to the legend of 1930’s blues musician Robert Johnson selling his soul in return for becoming a great blues musician. While most references to the selling or transfer of souls are to the devil, our progressive team here at yoursoulNFT feels that if you can transfer your soul to the devil, you should be able to transfer it to anyone or anything else as well.
Regardless if you’re trying to transfer your soul to an unworldy being, your cousin’s teddy bear, or your neighborhood grocer, we are here to help you draft up the document to facilitate the transfer and if you’d like, convert it into NFT format! We can also help you transfer your soul to a NFT for you to gift, sell, or transfer digitally! In the event you wake up one day and decide “Hey! I want my soul back from the digital token!”, we can then help you draft a termination of the transfer (subject to the terms and condition of the original transfer instrument) and even NFT that for you as well!
Unlike flowers, cars, or chocolates, your soul is a unique gift that can not be replicated by someone else. When you receive someone’s soul, their soul is yours, and cannot be given to anyone else. yoursoulNFT takes precautions to make sure that every individual only transfers their souls once with us.

In Christianity, selling your soul has long been associated with pacts with the devil or demons. While the most widely known reference to the practice is probably the legends surrounding 16th century German doctor, Faustus, who sold his soul to the devil for knowledge and worldly pleasures, there have been multiple references and stories of people selling their souls (source) from as early as the dark ages including the examples below:
- The Christian story of Theophilus tells of how the cleric sold his soul to the Devil to become bishop before dying around 538.
- The Malleus Maleficarum (1486), the witch hunting handbook also known as the Hammer of the Witches described pacts with the devil as one of the six activities involved in witches' sorcery. (Mackay, Christopher S. (2009). The Hammer of Witches: A Complete Translation of the Malleus Maleficarum (1 volume). Cambridge University Press. ISBN 978-0-511-53982-4. )
- The first oral Devil's pact was recorded in 1612 (source).
- Daniel Webster represented a client who sold their soul to the Devil in Stephen Vincent Benet's 1936 short story.
- On April 1, 2010, European computer game vendor Gamestation temporarily changed their End User License Agreement (EULA) to include a clause stating " By placing an order via this web site . . . you agree to grant Us a non transferable option to claim, for now and for ever more, your immortal soul." (source)
- In 2011, Carly Rae Jenson sings in her hit song "Call Me Maybe", that she'd "trade [her] soul for a wish, pennies and dimes for a kiss."
The practice and idea of deals with the Devil has been around for centuries and is still very much alive in modern culture today.
Typically, when making pacts with the Devil, individuals typically summon or randomly meet the Devil, negotiate a deal with him, and the parties are left to perform their sides of the agreement.
According to the Key of Solomon, a landmark grimoire, instructions for making a pact with a demon is as follows:
"Exactly at dawn, use a new knife to cut a fork-shaped
wand from the twig of a wild nut tree that has never
borne fruit. Take the wand, a magic bloodstone and
consecrated candles to the site of the ritual, preferably
a ruined castle or deserted house, where one will be
undisturbed and receive whatever treasures the demon
produces. With the bloodstone, draw a triangle on the
ground or floor, and place the candles on the side of it.
Stand in middle of the triangle, hold the wand and recite
the required invocation. When the work is finished,
recite another incantation to dismiss the demon."
Different schools of belief (e.g., witches, luciferins, occultists and wiccan practitioners), both traditional and modern have developed their own demon summoning rituals. Many practitioners also believe that an individual with the right training and discipline can also create their own summoning ritual. Most practices include some sort of protection spell or ritual to protect the summoner from possible harm that the summoned creature may inflict.
It is widely accepted that pacts with the Devil can be either oral or written. As with any important agreements, we suggest any pacts with the Devil be done writing. If you would like the document digitally either in .pdf or NFT form, we we got you covered!
Pacts, like all contracts have the terms in them that the parties agree upon. The following excerpt is from a pact used in the Loudun Possessions trials in Loudun France as evidence against parish priest Father Urbain Grandier. The pact was written backward in Latin and signed in blood when it was introduced as evidence in 1633.
"We, the all-powerful Lucifer, seconded by Stana, Beelzebub, Leviathan, Elimi, Astaroth, and others, have today accepted the pact of alliance with Urbain Grandier, who is on our side. And we promise him the love of women, the flower of virgins, the chastity of nuns, worldly honors, pleasures, and riches. He will fornicate every three days; intoxication will be dear to him. He will offer to us once a year a tribute marked with his blood; he will trample under foot the sacraments of the church, and he will say his prayers to us. By virtue of this pact, he will live happily for twenty years on earth among men, and finally will come among us to curse God. Done in hell, in the council of the devils.
(Signed by) Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer, Elimi, Leviathan, Astaroth.
“Notarized the signature and mark of the chief devil, and my lords the princes of hell.
(Countersigned by) Baalberith, recorder. "
(Rosemary Guiley, The Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology 195 Infobase Publishing (2009))
The terms you negotiate and would like to include in your is up to you and the other party. Whatever terms you need in your transfer, let us know and we would be happy to include them for you!
While we in no way suggest individuals to make pacts with the Devil, according to articles published on tabloid Weekly World News (source 1, source 2) and other sources, below are some tips for negotiating with the Devil if you choose to do so:
1. Basic Protocol. Only contact and negotiate with the Devil when you are alone. While the Key of Solomon suggests dawn, modern wiccan practitioners and demonologists believe that the best time to summon the Devil would be during the Witch's Hour or Devil's Hour, either 12-1AM or 2-4AM(source).
2. Don't Undervalue Your Soul. A 2013 analysis on claimed dealings with the devil showed that the Devil as of 2013 typically grants individuals a net worth increase of roughly $2.8 million USD (between $540,000 and $8.6 million) in return for the individual's soul. (source) It seems he's still been quite desperate for souls in the past decade. Always let the Devil make the first offer and don't sell yourself short. Don't beg or sound needy either. You might even want to play hardball. (source)
3. Take Everything you can possibly want. As your soul will be the Devil's eternally, you want to get the most out of your deal. Instead of asking for a beachfront property, ask for a property on every kind of geological environment. Instead of asking for a new boyfriend, ask for 100!
4. Prime Afterlife Housing. Often overlooked, but you're going to be in hell eternally so make sure you are properly accommodated. Central cooling probably a priority - we hear it's hot.
5. Life Extension. The Devil seems to be okay giving out 300-year guaranty life extensions though for obvious reasons it's only given on an if-asked basis. This extension guarantees you 300 years of living! You're finally getting everything you've ever wanted. May as well enjoy it for another three hundred years.
6. Transparency. While the Devil may not automatically offer you the Life Extension term we mentioned above, he is known to be fairly up front and clear about his terms. (source) So if you have any questions, definitely ask!
7. Consider Leasing. Los Angeles Times columnist Roy Rivenburg suggests leasing your soul to the Devil for a few years after your death as opposed to selling it off for eternity. (source)
8. Consult an Attorney. As with signing any document, always have the final writing reviewed by a qualified attorney. (source)
Post-Closing and Termination
Analysis and case studies done on deals with the Devil shows that the Devil typically holds up his end of the bargains. (source) If he didn't, we imagine it'd be bad for business and customers wouldn't be consistently seeking the Devil's services for so many centuries. Humans, on the other hand, have repeatedly tried to re-neg on their deals with the Devil. (source)
Can you get out of selling your soul to the Devil? Some demonologists believe you can, and that repentance will render a pact useless.
