This makes it possible to acquire a unique digital work with information on the seller, the buyer, the price and the date of sale. Artists and collectors have seized on this new technology. The associative and philanthropic world also. Here are some selected projects.

Crytponimals, NFTs to protect cash while earning revenue
Cryptonimals is a collection of NFTs to raise awareness about the protection of endangered animal species. The objective of the startup created a year ago is to reinvent donations for NGOs, particularly the fight for the preservation and protection of endangered wild animals. The collection for sale includes 900 NFTs. And 50% of the first transactions will be donated to NGOs such as Sea Shepherd. The startup then offers a secondary market that allows you to earn personal passive income. However, Cryptonimals obliges to donate 5% of each transaction to a cause.
