A mobile application focused on NFT was invented especially for investors, the Spotify streaming service is testing NFT support for some users, they decided to save the Australian Zoo with nonfungible tokens, and a Ukrainian artist helps to feed refugees with NFT.

Spotify Is Testing NFT Support

Streaming music service Spotify is testing the possibility of placing NFTs purchased on external marketplaces on the platform.

According to Music Ally, the new feature is being tested for a limited group of users of the Spotify Android app in the US based on the profiles of indie band The Wombats and DJ Steve Aoki.

The service does not yet plan to connect the possibility of selling tokens directly. But in case of success, the company does not exclude the full implementation of the function.

To collect feedback, Spotify decided to conduct a Twitter poll regarding NFTs, Web 3.0 and cryptocurrencies.

NFT Tracking App 

Belgium has created a smartphone app called Delta that allows users to track NFTs using a portfolio diversification strategy.

According to the press release, this app provides users with real-time access to tools and charts including popular stocks, cryptocurrencies, ETFs, mutual funds and NFTs. Thus, investors get access to all relevant information in one application.

Delta also allows you to manage multiple wallet addresses and keeps new projects up to date. At the moment, it is possible to connect Ethereum (ETH) wallets automatically or manually, but other networks will be available after the update.

#TheGoldStandard

In May, in celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPI), SuperRare partnered with artist Drue Kataoka to launch an exhibition called #TheGoldStandard to highlight the enormous contribution of Asian American artists to the digital art world.

At the #TheGoldStandard exhibition, 10 artists will showcase their work that depicts the Asian-American and global Pan-Asian experience. With this first-of-its-kind demo, SuperRare is trying to educate people on the importance of the different populations that make up the NFT ecosystem.

In an interview with NFT NOW, Kataoka said that Asian-American artists have been a mainstay of digital creativity for decades, from Hollywood special effects to the creation of virtual worlds, but many have been left behind.

Wildlife Warriors

The Australian Zoo partnered with Meadow Labs to launch the Wildlife Warriors NFT project to mark the 20th anniversary of the Wildlife Warriors Zoo. Tokens will be minted on Algorand.

According to NFT NOW, the collection will consist of NFTs dedicated to each individual animal of the Wildlife Warriors Australia Zoo. NFTs will be randomly generated, non-deterministic, utility-driven, and 100% unique. All proceeds from sales will go to fund the Australian Zoo.

Reverberate Ukraine

Ukrainian multimedia artist Oleksiy Kondakov, with the help of Bonhams, one of the oldest auctioneers in the world, and The Giving Block, a cryptocurrency donation solution, launched the Reverberate Ukraine NFT collection.

According to NFT NOW, the collection included five NFTs in which characters borrowed from various fine art paintings were overlaid on top of Kondakov’s mobile phone photographs of contemporary Kyiv. According to Kondavkov, in this way he wanted to show what it is like to live in a country where there is a war.

All proceeds from the sale of NFTs after the auction will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that provides food to people in Ukraine and displaced people in neighboring countries. And with the help of The Giving Block, part of the proceeds from the secondary sales of auction NFTs will also go to nonprofit organizations in the future.

The project will also sell 1,000 copies of Kondakov’s “Peaceful Evening in Kyiv”, and an exclusive blue version of the work will go on sale after the original edition is sold out. Each item will be priced at £100, with all proceeds going directly to the World Central Kitchen Chefs for Ukraine initiative.
