On March 31st 2020, we teamed up with NonFungible and 33 artists on MakersPlace to hold a special charity auction to celebrate our partnership with NonFungible, and more importantly to build awareness and provide support for COVID-19 relief. We’re excited to say that the auction was a huge success!
Over the course of the two-day auction we raised $3,636 which was donated to the Coronavirus Relief Fund at GlobalGiving. The proceeds included all MakersPlace platform fees and, for the majority, all proceeds from the sale donated by the artist.
We want to say thank you to all 33 artists for their generous gift. Everyone is in some way affected by COVID-19, including all the artists, so this was a huge gesture and sign of support by all the following:
Anonymous Nobody, ArtbyMitrai, Bard Ionson, Bit Errror, Brice Duncan, Chris Campbell, Daniel Ignacio, Dan Forlenza, David Loblaw, Fabi Yamada, Fabin Rasheed, Ferris Bullish, Fabiello, Gala Mirissa, Galleria Frankin, Luis Buenaventura, Mar E, Mel Duarte, Mich, Monfa, Moxarra Gonzalez, Nelly Baksht, Onefallart, Pastelcrypto, Paul Peterson, Reinhard Schmid, Richard Yates, Ricooouuuu, Ruth Allen, Tegar Siregar, Vansdesign, and Victor Duarte.
We’d also like to thank all of the collectors who supported this effort by purchasing one or more artworks by these amazing artists. This wouldn’t have been possible without you.
Finally, a huge thank you to the team at NonFungible for helping to coordinate this effort. What started off as a partnership to provide increased transparency for the NFTs on MakersPlace, turned out to be something much more, working together to help in this global cause.
All participating artists were encouraged to create an original piece that was inspired by current events. Not surprisingly, most pieces were in some way inspired by COVID-19, which in turn helped build awareness.
All featured artworks can be found at the NonFungible MakersPlace gallery.
