There was so much great news this week that it took a new review to find out the latest news regarding NFTs.
FLUF World and Snoop Dog work together for charity
FLUF World, Beyond VR and Snoop Dogg have joined forces to raise more than $1 million in a one-day NFT charity auction on behalf of the nonprofit Kiwi Auckland City Mission.
Seven FLUF World NFTs are paired with seven limited edition Snoop Dogg style Burrows, developed by Beyond and sold at OpenSea. The collaboration with the rapper included the studio release of 500 Snoop Dogg, which was announced last week.
Non-Fungible Labs, which owns FLUF World, made its first Christmas donation of $100,000 to the Oakland City Mission last month. In the same way that Fluf avatars can find a home in the Burrows of the Metaverse, Aukland City Mission helps local residents in need of accommodation.
adidas Originals launches adidas for the Prada Re-source Project in collaboration with digital artist Zack Lieberman at SuperRare. Most proceeds from the sale of NFTs will be donated to the Slow Factory, a non-profit organization and foundation dedicated to increasing sustainability and environmental awareness.
Adidas and Prada invite their communities to share anonymous images for the open source Metaverse NFT project. 3,000 artworks created by the community will be identified and tagged as NFTs. Digital artist Zach Lieberman will then assemble the tiled images into a single mass-produced NFT patchwork design. Participants will retain full ownership of their individual NFT Marks.
UNICEF celebrates 75 years of fundraising from the NFT
At the end of UNICEF’s 75th anniversary, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) launched the largest NFT set of 1,000 data to support Internet connectivity in schools. To date, $740 thousand have been collected.
The first 1,000 copies of the NFT raised $550,000, while a limited edition for presale and four more copies last week raised $140,000 at auction in St. Moritz. According to the organization, UNICEF has also secured a secondary auction platform scheme to receive 20% of royalties on all future sales, generating an additional $50,000 in one week. This royalty structure may allow UNICEF to continue raising funds for the Great School Affiliation Initiative by reselling it in the coming years.
