Crypto Art supports Sardinia
For the first NFT fundraiser, prestigious Italian and international contemporary artists have donated one of their works to show support for the island plagued by fires.
The NFTs will be sold on the Digital Art Rights platform with 100% of the profits donated to the island.
In this Dantesque Inferno, The AB Factory cultural organization with the precious participation of Antonio Marras and italian duo HACKATAO, one of the most famous crypto artists in the world and in partnership with many international artists, have made available their famed works to support the island hit by the violent fires.
“Fire, what to do? To torture ourselves, tear ourselves apart, to break down, cry, and scream in pain? Or is it better to fight, help, collaborate and most of all prevent? - states Antonio Marras - I cry for those who have lost everything, for the burnt creatures, but together we fight to be born again”.
On the digital platform digital.artrights.me it’s possible to buy a selection of NFT (Non Fungible Tokens) - digital artworks made to be collected, each traceable to a digital certificate that assures their absolute uniqueness - or donate via PayPal and Cryptocurrency.
The entire amount raised will be devolved to the ONLUS “Effetto Palla” from Oristano, dedicated to the animals of the land and to the Municipality of Santu Lussurgiu, one of those who were affected the most by the crisis.
Between the many artists who have contributed to the project are Federico Cecchin, Andrea Crespi, Alberto Maria Colombo, Noah D’Alessandro, Emanuele Dascanio, Simon Dee, Andrea Gola, ManuInvisible, Giovanni Motta, Renzo Nucara, Paola Pinna, Pongo 3D, Caterina Quartana, Alessandro Risuleo, WAARP and many more.
The project has been organized on the Digital Art Rights platform, with the support of prestigious partners and professionals that immediately started to work in support of the island including Art Rights, Phygi.io, Artuu Magazine, The Cryptonomist, DeFi Today, The Swiss Blockchain Consortium and Marco Rubino di Musebbi.
“I hope that Art can revive and bring color back where everything is dark now! - says Andrea Concas, CEO and Founder Art Rights – We want in this tragic moment for Art to be present, even the most innovative form of it.”.

WHAT ARE NFTs
Acronym for “Non Fungible Token”, they are a type of cryptographic token on Blockchain that represents a unique digital or real asset. What distinguishes NFTs is precisely their non-fungibility, i.e. the non-interchangeability given by a single, non-replicable code.
NFT & DIGITAL ART
A digital work in NFT is digitally signed by the artist who created it, which makes it different from the other apparently identical ones in circulation, just as an authentic and signed painting is different from a copy of it.
The NFTs allow you to demonstrate and certify the authenticity and therefore the intellectual property of the work as, regardless of the transfer of ownership, its attribution will always be attributable to the author.
