Unique network chosen as exclusive Blockchain partner for
NEW YORK, August 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – NFT Platform Single network announced today that it has been selected by the Accredited United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN-Habitat) and the International Association for the Promotion of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges (IAAI GLOCHA) as the main technology partner for DigitalArt4Climate, his latest initiative to help fight climate change. Unique Network is an NFT channel that extends the capabilities of non-fungible tokens with its more efficient and scalable proof-of-stake solution, currently designed for the Kusama and Polkadot blockchains.
As the climate crisis continues to escalate, it is imperative that the world’s youth are involved in the process of finding solutions. To this end, the United Nations has recognized NFT technology as a unique new medium of creative expression that can help amplify messages on climate action. NFTs are a way for artists to monetize their work globally and continue to receive payment for their work long after it is sold. Artists from anywhere can reach an international audience of collectors who support their work, and the UN wants to bring this art form to the next generation of creators who will benefit from technology that can help them amplify their work. .
DigitalArt4Climate aims to empower young artists, designers and activists around the world to create art that can inspire people to take action against the global climate crisis. Technology has long been a resource for activism, and NFTs represent a new medium optimized for the digital age. Unique Network will create and host DigitalArt4Climate’s NFT Marketplace for these artists and web designers to showcase their work. The market will be built on Unique Network’s suite of out-of-the-box NFT solutions that utilize blockchain technology optimized for energy efficiency and low carbon impact.
“To tackle the climate crisis, the United Nations understands the need to use any tool available to inspire people to take serious action on climate change,” said Miroslav Polzer, Founder and CEO of GLOCHA. “We believe that the union of digital innovations (IoT, data markets, NFT) and social innovations (new forms of multi-stakeholder cooperation) will lead to scalable and highly participatory systems. We have found Unique Network’s innovative and flexible infrastructure to be the main platform that will help us implement high impact climate action. With this initiative, we will harness the benefits of mobilizing the resources and energies of people across society to create a sustainable world.
Unique Network joined DigitalArt4Climate to lead the technical implementation of the program, alongside partner organizations GLOCHA, UN-Habitat, Alpha Social Foundation, Exquisite workers, and Pallet 69. The SAF will offer mentoring sessions to the artists and sponsor the winners. Exquisite Workers is the initiative’s primary creative and content partner while Pallette69 leads the UX / UI mentorship for Designathon.
“We are excited to demonstrate that the ethics of distributed ledger technologies and open data can be used to help change agents identify climate actions they can take,” says Alexander Mitrovich, CEO of Unique Network. “Unique Network is extremely proud to collaborate with key initiatives associated with the United Nations, the global body to challenge paradigms and ensure equity for a just transition. We believe that the future of human expression will lie in sustainable NFTs, and we are committed to showing the world how they can unite our disparate communities in the fight to save our planet.
The first part of this initiative was a Name, a design competition launched in July that saw UX / UI designers compete to create the digital art gallery and marketplace that will feature the second installment of this initiative, the DigitalArt4Climate art competition. Starting on International Youth Day, August 12, young artists will be able to submit their work on the initiative’s website. At the end of the competition, submissions will be auctioned on the DigitalArt4Climate marketplace. Unique Network’s advanced features will allow for flexible revenue models for individual artists.
