Buying an NFT
What is an NFT and How Does it Work?
NFTs are non-fungible tokens. They act as a non-duplicable, “one-of-a-kind” digital certificate of ownership for any virtual or physical assets. They can be bought and sold like any other piece of property, but they have no tangible form on their own.
What is the AAPI 88 Collection Campaign?
We are minting a collection of 88 Asian-American Pacific Islander Influencer digital trading cards to auction off as NFTs. Our goal is to raise $88,000 from this campaign and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to charity. At the end of the auction, each of the highest qualifying bids will win the limited NFT. In addition to winning the NFT, the winning bids will also be sent a limited physical collector card of the same NFT.
Where will the Funds be Donated to?
100% of the proceeds will be going to the NFT4Good Community Fund to support Asian American organizations and community-based non-profits active in the national #StopAsianHate and #HateIsaVirus movements. The NFT4Good Community Fund is being hosted at the Asian Pacific Community Fund (APCF) – the leading national community fund for the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. Founded in 1990, APCF is considered to be the ‘United Way’ for the AAPI community with a mission to cultivate philanthropists and invest in organizations that empower underserved AAPI communities. APCF is a registered 501(c)(3) and has extensive experience with Donor Advised Funds – including those in virtual currencies such as bitcoin and Ethereum.
How Do I Participate?
The AAPI 88 Collection is being offered exclusively on OpenSea.io. You will need to set up a MetaMask Wallet and an OpenSea account to participate in the auction. In order to bid you must pay using Ethereum. The auction will not accept credit cards.
