Dutch artist DADARA and digital rights management platform RAIRtech have developed a pool of 7.9 billion non-fungible (NFT) tokens.
There is a group called “CryptoGreymen” on the Polygon Ethereum scaling network. While every NFT is identical, they will have a serial number of 7.9 billion to reflect the estimated number of people living on Earth.
The group aims to be a social experiment that Dadara hopes will “unlock the cage of harmonic reality and take conversation to a new level”. The social experiment is simple, he said in an official statement:
“None NFT is better than the other, and since the price of the coin is so widely available, it will be interesting to see how much value each CryptoGreyman holder brings.”
In addition to being a social experiment, 2222 CryptoGreymen will be locked inside a treasure chest to be used as educational equipment by the Movement on Earth for refugees who need to learn how to make a crypto wallet. The Movement on the ground seeks to adequately receive refugees around the world.
Each item is a polka dot version of a Greyman created by Dadara in the 1990s.

Pixelmon causes controversy
The early creators of Pixelmon NFT faced a collective case of buyer remorse when the project revealed the project’s latest artwork over the weekend.
Each NFT is priced at 3 Ether (ETH), which is worth about $8,700 today, but the minimum set price on the OpenSea NFT marketplace is 0.36 ETH ($1051) at the time of writing. In total, the project raised about $70 million.
Immediately after the launch, there were rumors that the project deceived investors due to the low technical quality of the items in the set.
The previously provided roadmap showed sharp and clear graphics for each character in the group to be played. Investors may have expected their NFTs to have similar technical qualities.
However, the art itself for NFT varied greatly in style. These are very pixelated versions of the characters in the roadmap, with the “Kevin” character so bad that it’s become a meme in the NFT community.
NFT futures arts for sale
SuperWorld artist Gabrel Dean Roberts has 120 original artworks for sale as part of the NFT Collection. But what is important is that art has not yet been created.
The $150 million Omega or “” collection includes Robert’s future work over the next decade, a custom-built Rolls-Royce Ghost designed by Roberts, a million planted trees and $1 million for Doctors Without Borders.
The set is sold in the SuperWorld meta-verse and on the NFT marketplace.
In an official statement on Monday, Roberts said the group was designed to be “the highest value NFT ever sold or resold.”
“50,000 ETH (about $150 million) will destroy the art world and change the way people view smart contracts as a tool.”
