About The Show

RedKiteNFT is delighted to announce the imminent launch of their pioneering Humanity show, a unique NFT launch, the first of its kind, bringing together 33 artists to raise funds for refugees affected by conflict worldwide.

This groundbreaking show, marrying the worlds of NFTs and Fine Art for the first time, will consist of one artwork per artist, sold in limited editions of eight, with 256 NFTs on the Polygon blockchain available for sale.

It marks the beginning of a series of exciting drops orchestrated by RedKiteNFT, curating works from a community of contemporary artists to transcend traditional art collection and bring it to the NFT space on Web3.

“Humanity has been a voyage of discovery for us. The charities we’ve been working with have opened our eyes to the global refugee crisis and the amazing long-term support they provide. It’s compelling motivation to try and pull something off on this scale, so early in our journey.”

“The support and generosity of all the artists, partners and our discord community have been incredible. There’s a lot to be proud of, the artwork is spectacular and we hope to raise a significant amount to donate through this group show.” James Robbins, CMO of RedKiteNFT

The show’s catalyst is the current Ukraine conflict. Through the help and support of the wider art world, art collectors, creatives and fans alike, RedKiteNFT intends to bring awareness to this and other nations stricken by conflict worldwide.

Global crises have caused the displacement of thousands of communities, RedKiteNFT recognises this and wants to show their support through donating proceeds to the following charities:

  • The Refugee Council is a leading charity working with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK. Founded in 1951, following the creation of the UN Refugee Convention, they exist to support and empower people who have made the heart breaking decision to flee conflict, violence and persecution in order to rebuild their lives here in the UK.
  • The Voices of Children Foundation provide emergency assistance to women and children – refugees from all over Ukraine – essentials, settlement and relocation;provide psychological assistance to children and parents affected by the war; arranging centers for group classes with children who were evacuated from the shelling areas; provide individual assistance to families with children affected by the war.
  • UNICEF UK, Children’s Emergency Fund The impacts of conflict, COVID-19, climate change, and other disasters are being felt around the world. And, as is so often the case in times of crisis, it is children and young people who are feeling these effects the hardest. UNICEF UK’s Children’s Emergency Fund (CEF) is helping to address this, providing a vital and urgent response before, during and after emergencies. Every year, thanks to the generosity of their supporters UNICEF UK responds to around 300 emergency situations. Not all of these will make the news and some will quickly be forgotten but all of them have an impact on children.

Of the 70:30 per cent split each NFT usually has with RedKite and artist collaboration, RedKite will be donating 25% to the charities, retaining 5% to cover costs. All collaborating artists will donate 35% with the voluntary option to donate more. With this and the help of the art world community, RedKite hopes to make a significant contribution to the aid provided by the supported charities.

“I think the recent news has touched us all in some way, leaving us feeling somewhat helpless. As with any global crisis, artists are some of the first to get involved to help out, and as an NFT platform with access to these artists and a means to raise funds, RedKite made the quick decision to put on Humanity, to aid refugee charities.”

“We have some fantastic artists in our line-up, most of whom jumped at the chance to be involved, turning around some brilliant works in a short space of time. This show will not disappoint.” Angie Davey, Founder and Curator, RedKiteNFT

NFTs will be dropped in editions of eight. NFT artwork will be available to view on the Humanity campaign site, soon to be followed by listing on the redkitenft.io marketplace with respective countdown timers to launch. Keep an eye on the RedKiteNFT Discord for the latest updates and sneak peeks. You’ll probably bump into some of the artists for a chat there too.

With varying prices, art enthusiasts and seasoned art collectors can come together to celebrate art and its evolution while knowing the money they invest is going towards a good cause.

Additionally, a donation button will offer collectors and fans the chance to donate any sum to the cause. No matter the amount, donors will receive a thank you NFT from RedKiteNFT that will grant them access to various benefits and bring a community of art lovers together through the kind act of supporting the cause.

From the RedKiteNFT Discord channel, verified Humanity NFT holders, including RedKite thank you NFT, will have access to the private HUMANITY Discord channel. Within which, RedKiteNFT will run exclusive regular promos with the collaborating artists to reward investors’ charity support.

Press Release

Memecoin Madness: Eddie Seal Team Insults Investors and Returns Money from Presale

Crypto Chain Wire

Published

on

Two weeks ago, the Eddie Seal memecoin project ($EDSE) began raising funds for development through a presale event. On Wednesday, a controversial post appeared on the project’s Twitter, where the team labeled the presale investors as ‘morons’.

“You morons. You invest in a presale of a new memecoin and then cry when someone runs off with the money. Get a grip and be careful because 99% of presales are scams. We have returned all the payments to the wallets from which they were sent. Eddie will proceed without a presale!” reads the tweet from Eddie Seal profile.

This incident is quite unusual, given market norms. Memecoins are not financial instruments, hence funds raised through presales are not regulated in any way. It is unprecedented for a project team to refund all investments made by individuals.

The refund might have been an attempt by the Eddie Seal team to build credibility within the crypto community, especially as Eddie Seal has announced six marketing rounds aimed at reaching a $1 billion marketcap. The campaign will culminate in an Eddie Seal cartoon, in the style of Rick and Morty or Family Guy. The six marketing rounds include sponsoring a Formula 1 team, a Harry Styles (or another top tier star) concert at Wembley with tickets for $1EDSE, a ‘spending money competition’ with 10,000 credit cards linked to one account, and a $3 million donation to MrBeast for spending in one of his videos.

It was also announced that the team plans to distribute part of the $EDSE tokens to the community gathered around the project in the form of an AirDrop. Sign-ups are expected to start soon.

The price of the $EDSE token in the coming days will reveal how the market has reacted. The token contract address for price tracking is available at eddieseal.org or listed here: 2Zvo6bnwJtyXhsPgbcfajTrEtB7NwrJhK8mMmtEXvHHc

Metarise is forging new paths in the metaverse landscape, building an immersive digital universe that blends high-quality, low-poly graphics with the robust capabilities of the M20 Chain blockchain, all powered by Unreal Engine. This innovative platform merges reality with virtual spaces to create an interactive environment where users can live, work, and play.

Vibrant Digital Ecosystems: Cityland and Funland 

At the heart of Metarise lies Cityland, the bustling urban core that serves as the central hub for commerce, art, and social interaction. With its vibrant streets lined with shops, showrooms, galleries, and more, Cityland is where creativity meets community. Not far from the urban excitement is Funland, a sanctuary of joy and entertainment, offering a retreat where users can engage in games, sports, and various leisure activities. Both these areas are anchored by the iconic Metarise Tower, a towering structure that stands as a testament to the possibilities of virtual architecture and the central node from which all activity in Metarise radiates.

The Role of Riser Token in Metarise 

The pulse of this digital universe is the Riser Token ($RIS), a metaverse utility token that facilitates not only commerce but also enables a variety of interactions and transactions within the Metarise ecosystem. From purchasing virtual land to trading goods and accessing exclusive services, the Riser Token is essential for navigating and leveraging the full potential of Metarise.

Empowering Users and Businesses 

Metarise is more than just a virtual space; it is a versatile platform designed to accommodate the diverse needs of individuals and businesses alike. Users can escape the monotony of traditional digital interactions and immerse themselves in a vibrant 3D environment that offers an enriched form of social connectivity. For businesses, Metarise provides a range of tools and spaces for virtual offices, allowing companies to maintain operations, host conferences, and interact with clients without geographical constraints.

Innovative Real Estate and Investment Opportunities 

One of the standout features of Metarise is its approach to virtual real estate. Through its Initial Land Offering (ILO), users have the opportunity to invest in virtual land, represented as unique NFTs on the M20 blockchain. This allows for the development of personalized real estate projects, from digital offices and private properties to commercial spaces, which can be further monetized through rentals or providing specialized services.

MetaRise is excited to announce the opening of our Initial Land Offering (ILO), a unique opportunity for early adopters to participate in the early stages of our expansive metaverse. This early phase of development offers potential for growth as the platform evolves, though it’s important to remember that all investments carry inherent risks and returns are not guaranteed. As you consider joining us in shaping the future of MetaRise, we encourage you to make informed decisions.

A Hub for Brands and Creators 

Metarise serves as a dynamic marketing tool for brands looking to enhance their identity and user engagement through immersive experiences. It’s a platform where brands can interact with their audience in meaningful ways, leveraging the unique capabilities of virtual reality, augmented reality, and AI to deliver memorable brand experiences.

Conclusion: The Future of Digital Connectivity

It’s not just about creating a space for users to interact; it’s about redefining the essence of community and connectivity. As Metarise continues to expand and evolve, it invites users from all corners of the globe to explore its myriad offerings, engage with its vibrant community, and contribute to the ever-growing expanse of this digital frontier.
