- Raiinmaker and Cosmic Wire support climate charities.
- Raiinmaker is launching its token next month.
Raiinmaker, the blockchain fan engagement platform, has partnered with multimedia firm Cosmic Wire to support several climate charities through the creation of six special NFTs. To be specific, these companies have joined forces to create NFTs based on the work of legendary street artist Banksy, with tokens tied to the iconic remnants of the mysterious creator’s original Spy Booth wall mural.
Furthermore, the 100% of the royalty streams from the NFTs will go towards supporting three charities actively fighting climate change, namely Laudato Tree, the Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN), and the American Forest Association. Above all, Raiinmaker and Cosmic Wire will also be giving away $100,000.
Raiinmaker founder J.D. Seraphine explained:
Right now it’s critical that we all step up and do our part to help turn the tide at this important moment with climate change. We’re honored to support all the important work of the CfRN, Laudato Tree, and the American Forest Association.”
On the other hand, the Spy Booth Wall Mural, which first appeared in 2014, depicts 50s-era spies listening in on a conversation around a phone booth on the side of a building in Cheltenham, England, near the GCHQ. A critique on government surveillance and wiretaps, the work has been a source of controversy almost from the moment it appeared.
Two years later, the wall was destroyed and the mural was thought to have been lost forever. Luckily, the remaining fragments of the piece have been recovered and now preserved for all time.
Heralding the partnership with Raiinmaker, Cosmic Wire CEO Jerad Finck said:
We at Cosmic are truly excited to reintroduce the world to this amazing piece and preserve it indefinitely for future generations to enjoy. These remnants are all that remain of the work, and now they will be time-capsuled forever in the blockchain.
Moreover, the Laudato Tree charity, founded by 17-year-old activist Vivienne Harr, is a youth-powered movement that aims to plant and protect seven million trees while empowering local communities in 11 countries across the African Sahel. The climate change non-profit was inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical letter Laudato Sì, and was endorsed by the Pope at the Vatican in 2019.
You don’t need to be big or powerful to change the world,’ says Harr. ‘You just need to follow your heart – and stand for what you believe in.
Meanwhile, the Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN) seeks to bring together both developing and industrialized countries to collaborate on reconciling forest stewardship with economic development. The Coalition has been instrumental in stopping deforestation and fulfilling the promise to reduce emissions from tropical rainforests by creating REDD+, which protects 90% of the world’s tropical rainforests.
As for the American Forest Association, President Jad Daley has vowed to match every tree planted along the Great Green Wall in Africa, with a corresponding tree planted in the United States.
