Catholic NFT aids involvement with youth community
According to the statements of the church cardinal in Bangkok, the Catholic NFT pieces aim to engage with the youth community. Considering that today many young people are joining the crypto adoptions wave and virtual auctions.
The cardinal also suggests that many kids turn to technology to identify their faith. These announcements were heard on October 4 while celebrating Saint Francis Day in the Thai Catholic community.
The Catholic NFT collection is about a 149 mp photo tile to see A Pope Francis image. This photograph was taken from his trip to Thailand in 2019.
There are 350 special photos of the Pope in Thailand in the collection, mentioning that the 350th anniversary of the first Catholic priest in the Siam region is celebrated. The cathedral clarifies that each photo was selected manually to create a perfect mosaic.
Bangkok Catholic NFT reactions
An advertising agent at the Catholic Church in Bangkok said that the best reactions are expected on these NFT photographs auctioned. According to the advertising agency, the Catholic NFT collection was created with the Tezos Blockchain to preserve its respect for the environment.
The NFT collection developer based on Pope Francis paid close attention to details, mostly on being kind to the environment. Therefore, instead of using the Ether network to create these NFTs, he preferred to use Tezos that cleanly creates the pieces.
The Catholic NFT project has also been endorsed by Draper Goren and Kalamint, one of the main proponents of creating NFTs safely. According to Kalamint’s CEO, the company is encouraged by the NFT plan of the Catholic Church in Bangkok and promises its full support for future collections.
There is no exact date yet on when the NFT collection will be launched at the Catholic Church in Bangkok, but the funds raised will be sent to a school in Pathum Thani province. The church’s cardinal in Thailand may be planning to launch a new NFT collection before the end of the year after seeing good results in its first exhibition.
