MakersPlace is a premier market for truly rare digital artworks — digital art where its authenticity and rarity is guaranteed by blockchain technology. Today we’re excited to partner with NonFungible to establish greater transparency and trust behind the rare digital artworks available on MakersPlace. NonFungible is a trusted leader in providing high-quality information about the best projects in the NFT space, we’re excited to be working together.
Charity Rare Digital Art Auction
To celebrate this partnership, this week we’re holding a Charity Art Auction, featuring the foremost rare digital artists, to raise awareness for the COVID-19 pandemic and lend support to those directly affected and the necessary support systems.
All proceeds will be donated to the Coronavirus Relief Fund at GlobalGiving which will go towards:
- Sending doctors, nurses, and other front line responders to communities in need.
- Getting masks, ventilators, and other lifesaving medical supplies to hospitals and clinics.
- Delivering essential items to struggling families and older individuals in quarantined cities and refugee camps.
- Feeding children that rely on school meals as their only source of nutrition.
- Supporting hygiene awareness efforts, and more.
How to Participate
We’re excited to offer three ways to experience the digital artworks during the auction.

All artworks will be available for viewing and bidding at the NonFungible MakersPlace Gallery.
