It is an NFT collection that leverages blockchain technology to create a link between art and culture, with the goal of eliminating geographical limitations.
In recent years we have seen exceptional advances in blockchain technology, Web3, and non-fungible tokens, among others. And one of the sectors that has benefited the most from this advance is the artists’ sector.
As seen with the number of digital collectibles being published and exchanged on a daily basis, blockchain technology and art are very precisely linked thanks to NFTs.
Cisneros Media, an entrepreneurial group that has decided to join this trend, announced the launch of its first NFT collection, which is called Doctor 1919 (Dr1919). This collection has been developed in collaboration with 19 artists from the country of Venezuela.
The project developed by the artists consists of a series of digital collectibles made in homage to José Gregorio Hernández, a doctor who is remembered for his vocation for his profession and for helping people in poverty, the sick and the needy.
As stated on the official website, 70% of the proceeds from the minteo will be donated to the Archdiocese of Caracas, in order to finance educational and health activities.
The public wishing to access these works to contribute to these charitable purposes, in addition to owning a collectible from the collection, can do so through the specific section of the official website, where you can create 1919NFTs can be created.
Jonathan Blum, president of Cisneros Media, said that Doctor 1919 is a project aimed at exposing technology and innovation as tools that can be made available to other disciplines, which can be used to enhance different areas and have a positive impact on people.
Venezuelans revere José Gregorio Hernández for his gifts as a physician and for his religious vocation. He is recognized for his kindness and fervent dedication to placate people’s suffering.
