Animoca Brands has announced a non-profit charity event to raise funds for Australia’s bushfire recovery efforts in the form of an auction of an one-of-a-kind “Australia Edition 2020” NFT race car for its game F1 Delta Time.
The auction runs until 3am GMT on 22 March 2020 at www.F1DeltaTime.com.
All cryptocurrency earned from the auction will be sent to Finder and HiveEx who will then convert it to Australian dollars.
100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to a number of organisations who are aiding relief and recovery efforts, and will be split evenly between the NSW Rural Fire Service Association, WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.), and Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
The catastrophic bushfires that began in June 2019 were among the worst ever seen in Australia.
The fires have destroyed millions of hectares of land, over 3,000 homes and nearly 6,000 buildings, and killed at least 57,000 livestock and killed 34 people.
It is estimated that more than one billion animals perished from bushfires and drought, including as many as 10,000 koalas (a third of New South Wales’ total koala population), making them a potentially endangered species.
While the New South Wales Rural Fire Service recently reported that there are no longer active bush or grass fires in the hardest-hit state of New South Wales, the wildfires have already brought great devastation to the country.
