Dobré víly dětem (www.dobrevily.cz) is a non-profit organization helping more than a hundred children from orphanages in the Czech Republic to improve their quality of life.
A group of volunteers associated under the heading of the non-profit organization Dobré víly dětem (Good Fairies for Children) finances its activities through public fundraising. In order to motivate a rather marginal group of donors – fans of IT technologies – they teamed up with MoroSystems and together we created nftprovily.cz, the first ever NFT charity marketplace in the Czech Republic. The Blockchain NFT technology was thus presented in a completely new light – as an innovative fundraising channel for non-profit organizations.
PROPOSAL AND DESIGN SOLUTION
In order to raise awareness of the non-profit organization Dobré víly dětem among IT enthusiasts, we designed an unconventional and unique fundraising project aimed at the IT community.
For the NFT charity marketplace, we took advantage of the growing trend of tokenized digital art. On the portal, a donor selects an image from the gallery, sends the chosen financial donation to the non-profit organization, and immediately after receives a token of the selected artwork in their crypto wallet as a reward.
We designed and built the NFT charity marketplace in a mere ten weeks. To ensure that the portal complies with the legal framework of the Czech Republic with regard to the regulation of operations with virtual assets, we have joined forces with a legal office. Working together, we were able to ensure compliance of the NFT charity marketplace with the requirements of the AML Directive (Anti-Money Laundering Act), the non-profit organization laws, and the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA).
We built the NFT charity marketplace on the Binance Smart Chain blockchain via the platform Tatum.io, for which we also act as a Platinum Partner. Within the framework of the application, we have developed functionalities for verifying the existence of a crypto wallet on the blockchain and automatic transfer of tokens between crypto wallets. We tokenized the images in the BEP-721 standard (ERC-721) and stored them on a decentralized IPFS storage. Because we needed to collect financial donations for the non-profit in fiat currency, we integrated a third-party payment gateway (GoPay).
