KRebels Utilize the NFT Technology to Raise Awareness for the Protection of Koalas
Over the past decade, over 400 animal and plant species have faced extinction, wiped away from the earth’s surface either due to environmental factors, loss of habitat or human activities such as hunting, deforestation, pollution, urban encroachment, among others. Unfortunately, one species that inches closer to extinction with every passing day and has been enlisted as endangered is the Australian Koalas. Innovative creators and crypto-enthusiasts have now combined the cutting-edge blockchain technology and art to create a unique NFT project aptly named KRebels to raise awareness of this threat of extinction and repopulate the earth with these gentle creatures, and raise funds towards protecting them.
KRebels is the latest avant-garde NFT project focusing on the intersection of cutting-edge technology, art, and saving the endangered Koala. To begin, the NFT creators included a backstory. “The year is 2099, the eucalyptus tree has disappeared from the earth’s surface, and the Koalas are very angry. However, no one counted on the genetically enhanced ferocity and cunning traits of the Koalas to build the Koala Rebels movement. Humanity better watches out. The KRebels will stop at nothing.”
Even though this story is fictitious, it bears uncanny semblance to human activities such as deforestation and hunting that have led to the decline of the species. To make a difference, the brilliant creators behind the NFT project have created 9,999 wholly original and unique Koala based NFT collectibles that can be minted and owned by collectors in the KRebels community.
After minting their unique token, KRebels owners will be able to evolve their Koala in the digital Metaverse by bartering for products like eucalyptus, wood, accessories, among others. They will also be able to improve their habitat, form a family. Collectors also stand to earn as their Koala develops. “The more their Koala will develop, the more it increases its rarity rate. The rarer it is, the more valuable it becomes, the more likely it is to earn a monthly and lifetime income for their owner,” the team behind the project explained.
In addition to finding a suitable home for the Koalas in the Metaverse forest, holders will also be able to participate in educational activities, private events, and other interactive experiences where they have the opportunity to play and earn valuable tokens. They will also be able to interact with their Koala NFTs in the Metaverse like a video game and have a voice in the community to help guide the project’s direction.
Developers of the KRebels NFT project are committed to saving the Koalas and aims for the project to be long-term. The team is currently working toward releasing a new collection that will be made available soon after the KRebels 1st generation launch. Furthermore, they have a percentage of the proceeds to projects and organizations to preserve the koalas.
