- One of world’s longest and most peaceful protests that saw over 750 martyrs and took a year to emerge victorious has not led to a single NFT sale on OpenSea.
- The collection of 24 NFTs were minted on Polygon two months ago.
- The funds raised from the collection are meant to assist families that have lost loved ones in the protest.
- Proceeds from sales would go to an NGO called Atam Pargas to aid them in the work they have been doing to support families.
- The NFTs are designed to be showcased in a metaverse museum after sales.
