The NFT infrastructure platform was selected for the DigitalArt4Climate initiative to help empower artists to adopt NFTs in the context of goals and programs of the UN.
NEW YORK, Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NFT platform Unique Network announced today that it has been selected by the United Nations’ accredited Human Settlement Programme (UN-Habitat) and the International Association for the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges (IAAI GLOCHA) as the lead tech partner for DigitalArt4Climate, its latest initiative to help combat climate change. Unique Network is an NFT Chain that is expanding the capabilities for non-fungible tokens through its more efficient and scalable proof-of-stake solution, currently built for the Kusama and Polkadot blockchains.
As the climate crisis continues to escalate, it is imperative that the young people of the world are brought into the solution-making process. To this end, the United Nations has recognized NFT technology as a unique new medium for creative expression that can help amplify messages about climate action. NFTs are a way for artists to monetize their work on a global scale and continue to receive payments for their work long after it is sold. Artists anywhere can reach an international audience of collectors who support their work, and the UN wants to bring this art form to the next generation of creators who stand to benefit from a technology that can help them amplify their work.
DigitalArt4Climate aims to empower young artists, designers, and activists worldwide to create art that can inspire people to take action against the global climate crisis. Technology has long been a resource for activism, and NFTs represent a new medium that is optimized for the digital age. Unique Network will create and host DigitalArt4Climate’s NFT marketplace for these artists and web designers to showcase their artwork. The marketplace will be built on Unique Network’s ready-to-use suite of NFT solutions that uses blockchain technology that is optimized for energy efficiency and low carbon impact.
