Crypto.com has announced a partnership to create “The Art of Giving II” NFT Collection drop that will support the local relief and humanitarian initiatives in Turkey in response to the tragic earthquakes. 100% of the proceeds from the first market sales will be donated to a local nonprofit organization.
The art pieces that made up the collection are featured exclusively on Crypto.com’s native NFT platform. Every NFT is offered at a 50$ price and can be purchased until March 2, 2023, at 23:59 UTC. The art pieces can be bought via open editions; the total available editions are limited only by the length of the drop period. Available payment methods include credit or debit cards, Crypto.com Visa Card, and Crypto.com Pay.
Kris Marszalek, Chief Executive Officer at Crypto.com, commented, “The suffering and devastation brought on by the earthquakes in Turkey are unimaginable and we want to do our part to help support the humanitarian efforts. We are thrilled to partner with more than 50 artists to raise funds through our platform, and invite our community to help join these efforts through the sale.”
