The NFT market is booming and is gradually turning into its own space within the blockchain industry. Countless new projects are emerging every day, exploring the endless possibilities of Metaverse, P2E gaming and DeFi applications. Many of them have successfully created fortunes for developers and investors.
However, not all of them are just for the money. Some have accepted the honourable mission of fighting for the common good. As the market evolves, more and more people are beginning to incorporate charitable elements into their projects. NFTs are a great way to raise money and raise awareness for social and charitable causes.
In this article, we will be discussing Five Charity NFT projects to watch out for in this space.
5 Charity NFT Projects to Watch
Dainty Dolphins was created from simple admiration for dolphins to raise awareness for our vulnerable friends. Each of the 1,836 exquisite dolphins is a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted dolphin with over 135 different characteristics, and 100% of all minting profits will be donated to the Team Sea to help remove 30 million pounds of trash from our oceans by January 1, 2022.
With increasing ocean pollution and climate change, the Dainty Dolphins realised it was time to stand up and make a difference. 100% of all Mint earnings, 50% of all merchandise earnings, and 25% of all royalties earnings go to community-chosen charities.
When 50% of the NFTs are minted, Dainty Dolphins donates 15 ETH to a charity of the community’s choice. 100% of the time, they donate another 50 ETH. Once the full minting is completed, the Dainty Dolphins NFT will be used as an entry token for a holder-only gaming event, with prizes offered in ETH.
Oki’s World is “A Coming of Age Story” that blends the physical and ethereal realms through generative NFTs, murals, music and community. Follow the story across 5 chapters (5 drops), each with its own digital collection of NFTs, physical art immortalised by murals, and immersive music and animation, all unfolding within the singularity.
After Chapter 5, they turn over all creation tools to Oki NFT holders to be able to create their own NFTs and storylines. Holders can keep 100% of primary sales and 4% of secondary sales.
The Oki’s World team has officially partnered with OnChain Monkeys and Metagood to create sustainability protocols in our smart contracts. A portion of all business is used for causes aligned with the UNDP Sustainable Development Goals so that Oki’s can do good together.
Dirty Dogs is a collection of 7,777 unique dogs released by a rogue Cool Cat to help dogs worldwide by donating to local and global charities and animal shelters.
At the end of the public sale, the Dirty Dogs community was able to vote on the beneficiaries of the donation on their Discord server, donating $25,000 to Fur Kids and $25,000 to Plush Bears Shelter. The Dirty Dogs team are also working on major collaborations with a range of charities and projects, which will be announced soon.
Additionally, they plan to develop Cats Vs. Dogs Game which will bring more utility to holders’ NFTs.
Get ready for the Chonk Society’s adorable impact. The Chonk Society is a collection of 1,500 Chonky Cat NFTs with a mission to donate $1,000,000 to animal rescues around the world and explore the power of DAOs to transform charitable giving.
The Chonk Society team will donate up to 20% of initial sales and hold a monthly charity auction of limited edition 1/1 Chonks. Your royalties are capped at 5%, of which 50% is invested directly back into the community wallet to support community managers, moderators and Chonk Society activities.
With their funding, they will begin to explore the potential of DAOs in coordinating charitable giving. They will also consider partnering with cat cafes where the community can hang out with REAL LIFE Chonks and help rescue cats and Chonk plushies.
Trotting Turkeys is a 5,555 NFT collection that aims to be the most charitable NFT project on the Solana blockchain. Each Trot turkey is unique and made with over 80 attributes and accessories. Once minted, members have commercial rights to their NFT for as long as they own it.
After minting is completed, 1,000,000 meals will be delivered to Feeding America, and 50% of all royalties will go to local famine relief. They will also launch the Giving DAO, the first-ever DAO dedicated to supporting local charities known and localised by members and paying all Trot Turkey members royalties to their communities.
NFTs are already playing a more significant role in giving and fundraising for charities. Therefore, the charities that want to benefit from NFTs need to develop policies to accept NFTs and cryptocurrencies. Potential donors and charities need to carefully consider a number of sensitive issues.
