Ethernity, a NFT project that’s focused on charitable causes, auctions artwork featuring artists and stars from music, film, sports, crypto and other industries. Each of the digital artworks is represented as a non-fungible token (NFT) and has been created by renowned artists. The pieces feature well-known public figures and a portion of all funds raised from the endeavor will be donated to charitable causes.
Public figures who are participating in the debut Ethernity collection include Gemini founders the Winklevoss brothers, soccer legends Christian Vieri and Paolo Maldini, Philadelphia 76ers owner Michael Rubin, Swedish DJ Alesso, Belgian DJs Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. In fact, Ethernity has already secured a vast amount of NFTs that are endorsed by celebrities and created by artists. Their goal is to build the biggest library of authenticated NFTs (AFNTs).
Operating at the intersection of crypto and digital art, Ethernity provides a way for celebrities to support charitable causes while participating in interests that are close to their heart.
Established digital artists including Mad Dog Jones and Esteban Diacono have been asked to create collectible NFTs that are unique to each celebrity. Ethernity is focused on creating one of a kind quality trading card NFTs as well as unique animation art pieces. The Vintage Card Collection will be kickstarted by 76ers owner Michael Rubin, who has already raised over $60 million for children and adults in need via the All In Challenge.
NFTs are already synonymous with basketball thanks to the success of NBA Top Shot, which assigns memorable in-game moments to unique NFTs. Mainstream interest in digital collectibles has been growing rapidly, with $8.6 million of blockchain-based artwork sold in December, and a digital Bitcoin artwork selling for $130,000 at Christie’s auction house.
Ethernity is a new initiative exploring applications for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) within the context of art, decentralized finance (DeFi) and charity. It provides a way for celebrities and public figures to endorse digital artwork created by renowned artists. Anyone can purchase each limited edition artwork, with a portion of the proceeds going to charitable causes that the celebrity supports. Ethernity was founded by early Bitcoin investor and NFT innovator Nick Rose Ntertsas.
