Taking ownership of our culture and minting
it on the blockchain

We’ve seen a lot of different animal PFPs and some more than we care to remember.  It’s now time we have a PFP that resonates with US and celebrates our culture.

WE ARE THE ART!

Price: 57 MATIC ($80 USD)

What is this project about?

For The Culture was created for one reason- to celebrate us.  We are a NFT project of 2,021 (commemorating the year Juneteenth became a federal holiday in the US) unique PFPs (profile pictures) inspired by black anime art styles such as The Boondocks.  As we dive deeper into the metaverse and blockchain technology it is apparent the we are still underrepresented in this space.  Our motivation is to provide a PFP that the mainstream collector could adopt as their actual profile picture and/or metaverse avatar without the concern for the cultural appropriation and subtle racial undertones of other PFP projects we’ve encountered in this space. 

For The Culture is unique in that we designed our project specifically with the African diaspora in mind, with 9 different shades of melanin we hope that every collector finds a PFP that resonates or resembles them.  By designing our avatars with tshirts we are able to lower the initial minting price allowing more first time collectors but also giving them the opportunity to “change clothes” in the future to further customize the avatar to their individual personality. 

For The Culture intends to inspire more mainstream adoption to the NFT space.  Just like the early adoption of cryptocurrencies in the beginning, it wasn’t until more everyday people invested that we saw the amount of value increase that we’ve seen in 2021.  The more adopters that enter the NFT space the more resilient and stable it will be. 

What’s great about NFTs is that instead of just investing in a coin and waiting for the value to increase, you now get a digital artwork to appreciate, admire, and showcase while that artwork potentially appreciates in value. 

With plans to develop future partnerships with IRL (in real life) brands and social influencers, we aim to build a diverse and inviting community where members can gain knowledge about other NFT projects as well as the future of cryptocurrency as a whole.

This is only the beginning of what’s to come with cryptocurrencies, the metaverse, and For The Culture.

What is an NFT?

NFTs or non-fungible tokens are digital assets that in the real world represent the ownership of objects like art, music, video clips, in-game items, and more. NFTs have been around since 2013 but have gained more popularity in recent years as a way to buy and sell digital art. Non-fungible means that the objects are unique, as such cannot easily be replaced. Unlike Bitcoin or Ethereum, NFTs cannot be traded or exchanged for another. Although they all use the same kind of programming, a NFT is much different. Even if the same blockchain technology is used that powers cryptocurrencies, NFTs do not act as normal currency. Each NFT has a digital signature that prevents one NFT to be exchanged for or equal to another.

How do NFTs work?

NFTs function on a blockchain, more specifically For The Culture is on the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is also a cryptocurrency like bitcoin. The Ethereum blockchain along with other blockchains supports NFTs which can store extra information. The ownership of NFTs is exclusive meaning that there can only be one owner at a time. They have unique data that makes it extremely easy to verify and trace the owner as anyone can review the blockchain.

How to buy a NFT

To begin you will need to get a digital cryptocurrency wallet. The wallet will allow you to deposit the NFTs and cryptocurrencies. Depending on which cryptocurrency the NFT provider has asked for, you will need to purchase them and store them in your wallet. Cryptocurrencies can be bought using credit cards or PayPal.
