Conservation involves awareness, solutions and resources. The decentralised teams of Private Panda and the African Conservation Foundation are developing a new approach to community-led conservation, connecting the metaverse with environmental impact through non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Goal is to enable a more direct global participation in wildlife conservation, with a mix of funding and direct involvement. In that way NFTs inspire and facilitate inclusive and collaborative practices.
NFTs are the latest blockchain phenomenon to go mainstream. They are tokens that can be used to represent ownership of unique items. NFTs transform digital works of art and other collectibles into verifiable assets that are easy to trade on the blockchain.
Private Pandas is an NFT collection designed and built for the Secret Network privacy blockchain. The Pandas are a delightful collection of non fungible tokens with built in programmable privacy, an attribute which can only be found on the Secret Network.
There will be a limited one-time mint of 779 Private Pandas which are algorithmically generated to include dozens of unique traits some of which are extremely rare.
The NFT collection was created to increase awareness of critically endangered animals, the largest portion of which are found on the African continent. Private Pandas will donate future royalties from the sales of the NFTs to the African Conservation Foundation, one of the leading charities helping endangered animals on the African Continent.
“The panda, a symbol of gentle strength, is a powerful icon in the world when it comes to the conservation of rare species,” says Arend de Haas, Director Conservation, African Conservation Foundation. “Get your Private Panda NFT and take good care of it, because in turn it will take care for Africa’s endangered species and their habitats!”
The ACF is developing a collaborative network of self-sustaining conservation initiatives. Together with local communities, they develop holistic conservation plans combining ecosystem restoration with ecotourism. They also create local ownership and engagement to ensure long term sustainability of projects.
Private Panda NFTs were born to live on the Secret Network. Take one for your very own and care for him and find out about the secrets he is keeping. Secret Network is an independent blockchain network built using the Cosmos SDK. It provides an open-source protocol that brings privacy and access control to smart contracts and public blockchains. Privacy takes NFTs to a new level, offering artists, collectors, gamers and developers more options.
Private Pandas will be available to mint at a soon-to-be-announced date directly from https://www.privatepandas.com
Resales will take place on the Stashh marketplace at stashh.io
