For Paris Blockchain Week and Consensus 2023, two prominent events in the blockchain sphere, we partnered with NMKR and TURF NFT and created exclusive NFTs with a real utility. Since all profits went to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, every time one NFT or the entire collection was purchased, individuals around the world helped assist people affected by the Ukraine war or those in the most underfunded crises.
Turf NFTs are algorithmically generated interpretations of your favorite places. Every Turf piece is a 1/1 cartographic artwork capturing a 2x2km square of earth.
NMKR is an NFT Creation, Minting & Trading Infrastructure provider on the Cardano blockchain, offering a suite of tools that help brands, companies and enterprises to launch Whitelabel custom Cardano NFT projects.

Our partnership with renowned crypto artist Chadi Nassar resulted in the launch of Faces 04 – A world without displacement. It is a limited NFT collection in support of forcibly displaced people and other individuals of concern, with 50% of the profits going to the UN Refugee Agency’s operations in the field and towards its innovation programmes.
Nassar wanted to shine light on UNHCR’s eight ongoing emergencies, and give a glimpse of what it would be like to live in a world with no displacement. Through his art, he portrays the joyful side of people who we often see represented in refugee camps with a sad expression on their face.

- Edition of 88 1/1 NFTs, 11 for each ongoing emergency
