According to a report from media outlet Fintech Times, SET University and ZibraAI are in the process of establishing a philanthropic NFT collection to help educational initiatives in Ukraine in the middle of the invasion by Russia. The program showcases thirty pieces of art produced by the NFT using artificial intelligence (AI)-based technologies developed in-house.
The proceeds from the sale of the collection are going to be utilized entirely to provide financial aid to Ukrainian students so that they may participate in educational programs that focus on artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, and cybersecurity.
Iryna Volnytska, president of SET University, said:
“We tried to imagine the future of Ukraine and how it may look in 70, 100 or 200 years,” Volnytska comments. “Will it be technological? Undoubtedly, we are already demonstrating a high level of digitalisation.”
ZibraAI is a deep tech firm located in Ukraine that develops AI-powered solutions and products specifically for the video gaming industry. SET University is a Ukrainian educational school that is not-for-profit and provides higher education for the technology sector. It is the company’s partner.
Oleksandr Petrenko, founder and CEO of ZibraAI, said:
“We are extremely pleased to cooperate with SET University and hope that thanks to this, more students will get the decent education they deserve.”
In related development, Lifecell, a mobile provider based in Ukraine, just unveiled its own NFT marketplace few days ago. The digital operator has pioneered the introduction of an NFT marketplace among Ukrainian mobile carriers.
Ukrainian artists will be able to collaborate together on the platform and emerge as experts in NFT, with the added benefit of being able to tokenize their creations and earn money from them independently.
