Finder launches first charitable NFT collection to raise money for Ukraine
Global fintech Finder has launched its first charitable NFT collection of “Peace Koalas” to raise money for Ukraine.
Finder has released the collection of 1,000 Peace Koalas, unique generative artworks created by Finder’s designer Lemon Mingyue, to the public, with each Peace Koala worth 0.03 ETH (approx $77 AUD) each.
All the minting proceeds and secondary sale royalties from the Peace Koala collection will go directly to the official crypto wallet of Ukraine, published by the Ministry of Digital Transformation.
Frank Restuccia, Founder and Global CEO of Finder, said the launch of the project was born from a desire to do more for the people of Ukraine.
“We have a number of crew in Poland who have seen first hand the impact of this war, which is why we are using our skills and resources to do what we can to support the cause.”
Finder has already raised over $15,000 for Ukraine charities after a successful campaign earlier this year where the company matched donations made by crew.
“I know many of us feel helpless watching these scenes from the safety of being on the other side of the world, but we all want to be able to do more. This is another way to show your support from afar.”
This is Finder’s first charitable NFT collection, and an opportunity to help others gain a better understanding of the market. Each Peace Koala holder will earn a guaranteed waitlist spot for Finder’s next NFT collection. Additionally, rare NFT holders of this collection will be able to receive discounts on future mint prices.
“If you’re an NFT investor this is a great way to give back to a community in need. If you’re new to NFTs this is your chance to dip your toe in at an accessible price point and raise money for a good cause at the same time.”
Finder’s Consumer Sentiment Tracker reveals that 5% of Australians own NFTs, and a further 17% say they don’t currently own any NFTs but plan to buy some.
The project has been built on ImmutableX, a layer-2 ETH scaling solution – minimising gas fees and maximising the amount able to be donated. This also ensures that all NFTs minted are 100% carbon-neutral.
