**Hope For Children is collaborating with blockchain developer Function X Foundation and Pundi X Labs to launch “Hope For Children NFT” to accept crypto donation. This is a mint-to-donate NFT. Participants will be able to donate cryptocurrency through minting the limited version of Hope for Children NFT as a certificate of appreciation.
A limited number of 50,000 Hope For Children NFTs will be available for participants to mint via MetaMask, f(x)Wallet and other decentralized blockchain wallets that support WalletConnect. This series of NFTs features the children of all nationalities holding signage to display their desire, including peace, no war, love, courage, trust and more. A total of 100 different designs. The design of NFT will be randomly selected. The participants will be able to see the NFT design they will have after minting. The NFT is on standard BEP-721 and can be compatible with any blockchain wallet supporting the BNB Smart Chain (previously named Binance Smart Chain). Minting a Hope for Children NFT requires 20,000 PURSE tokens (around 20$) and less than 0.01 BNB (around 2$).
All the PURSE tokens used to mint the NFT will be donated to Hope For Children for the needs of the above actions.
