April was a community-focused month for the Kolectiv platform, filled with events, airdrops, and partnerships with artists & other projects to reward our collectors. With so much going on, we’re introducing Kolectiv Monthly Reviews to give a recap of all of the happenings & community initiatives on Kolectiv!
Kolectiv Charity Auctions
Utilizing the platform’s newly-released auction feature, Kolectiv hosted a series of auctions to support a community-selected charitable cause. A total of 32 cards were auctioned, 21 of which were generously donated by Kolectiv community members. Kolectiv’s Charity Auctions raised a total of 3.86 ETH ($13,383 at the time of donation) to be donated to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer.
We at Kolectiv would like to thank everyone who participated in the event and helped make this possible. This was our first attempt at a charitable event and we hope all of you enjoyed it as much as we did. You can look forward to the future where we will plan something similar on a larger scale!
Charity Auction Airdrops
Those who participated in Kolectiv’s Charity Auctions were awarded with unique roles in Discord, and those who bid on auctions received up to 3 surprise airdrops after the event had concluded:
- NFT artist Farruk Murad, who has been previously featured in Kolectiv’s Crypto 2021 & Visions of Tomorrow collections, generously created a work of art titled “comm-Unity” for this event. This card was airdropped to any collector who placed at least one bid on a Charity Auction.
- Bidders additionally received a “Charity 2022” card created by Kolectiv featuring a close-up static image of the angel used in our auction promotions.
- Collectors who won at least one Charity Auction received a rarer, animated variant of the full-body angel titled “mechA-ngel.” This card features a unique animation highlighting auction winners’ statuses as a “Diamond Charity Kolector” in our Discord.
