Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are no longer the buzzword in the crypto and blockchain world, but have become an integral part of blockchain technology services. As the popularity of NFTs skyrocketed, the conversation about using NFTs to make a difference and give back to communities that need them most has also grown.
Use cases for TVNs thrive if we can relate them to tangible results. As collectors connect more to the causes of some of the most fascinating NFT projects, they become more engaged, increasing the value of NFTs.
Using NFTs for Social Good
The growth of the NFT market is leading to increased creativity when it comes to using NFTs and turning them into utilities. This, in turn, adds value to the standalone collector’s item, providing increased returns to buyers.
Just recently we saw Bored Apes transform into a group called Kingship, while religious relics will be used as NFT for a charity. Digital Art 4 Climate, for example, uses NFTs to raise awareness about climate. And now there are projects like KRebels that use the collectible nature of TVNs to highlight the issue of endangered species.
KRebels, a unique NFT project that focuses on the intersection of technology, art, and endangered koala species, is committed to connecting NFTs with the plight of the koala. For their first project, they created 9,999 original koala-themed NFT collectibles. Each collector’s item will be used in the metaverse to form families, trade products, and evolve as it becomes rarer.
“The idea was born out of one of the team members who witnessed what happened to koalas during the wildfires in Australia. We also appreciated what has been done by other NFT projects to donate their profits to charity. Thus, each member of the team put their skills at the service of the cause to create KRebels ”, shares the team.
Each user who purchases a KRebels NFT as part of the project will play their part in supporting the foundations dedicated to the preservation of the koala species. NFT holders will also have a say in the future of the project, bring the NFTs into the metaverse, and use the NFT Koalas to earn monthly rewards.
Technology for raising awareness of endangered species
According to the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) Red List of Threatened Species, one in four mammals in the world and more than 40% of amphibians are threatened with extinction due to human activity. Along with international treaties and laws aimed at helping the decline of endangered species, there is also a need for increased awareness of species that are suffering and in need of support.
In this regard, the arts have always played a role in promoting social and charitable causes. The fact that NFTs can be harnessed to amplify the message about habitats that may be critical to the survival of our endangered species should be celebrated.
The NFT community is strong with a willingness to support each other’s projects and push the boundaries of artwork to raise awareness of the underlying technology. KRebels hopes to pave the way for a movement to develop more NFT projects focused on the plight of endangered animals around the world.
KRebels is a pioneering NFT project focused on the intersection of cutting edge technology, art, and endangered koala conservation. As part of their first project, the in-house artist at KRebels created 9,999 completely original and unique NFT collectibles on the theme of the koala. By committing to both artistic integrity and donating the profits to foundations, KRebels intends to contribute to the preservation of the environment.
