Swappable Joins Unicef and CfC St. Moritz to Help Connect Every School to the Internet

Crypto and NFTs have unleashed a flurry of innovation for the betterment of mankind. Realization of the human potential for creativity is at the heart of the blockchain industry. Guided by this principle, the team behind Swappable has been hard at work on the initiative we are pleased to announce.

Swappable is collaborating with UNICEF and the CfcC St. Moritz, to help close the digital divide

Swappable, in collaboration with UNICEF Switzerland and Liechtenstein and the Crypto Finance Conference (CfC St. Moritz) the most relevant digital assets and blockchain conference for investors and decision-makers will support Giga, a partnership between UNICEF and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) working to connect every school to the internet, and every young person to information, opportunity, and choice. UNICEF has been working for children at home and abroad for 52 years by promoting international programs in the areas of survival and development, education, child protection, and emergency aid.

Bid for top tier NFTs from leading artists on Swappable, and help UNICEF close the digital divide

To begin this collaboration, UNICEF will host an NFT auction powered by Swappable, for the upcoming CfC St. Moritz in January 2022.

Jani Leinonen, the renowned Finnish artist who minted his first NFT collection with Swappable will create a unique piece of art exclusively for the auction, alongside names such as Nadie Brehmer, Philipp Schaerer, and Robertson Kaeppeli. The artists will work in collaboration with the gallery La Stalla in St Moritz.

The auction will be divided into two parts: a pre-auction, where people can place bids online, and a live auction on-site at the Segantini Museum on January 13th, 2022, for attendees of CfC St. Moritz. The auction will be led by Bertold Müller, Delegate of UNICEF Switzerland & Liechtenstein, and Christie’s Managing Director for Continental Europe, Middle East & Africa.
