- Crypto for good: Artist partner NFT platform (Charged Particles) to use fund to save Darina’s life.
- Darina badly in need of funds as her health condition is life threatening.
- NFT project collects work from Brodsky and 1,000 other artists.
Charged Particles, an infrastructure technology company that enables users to ‘charge’ NFTs by depositing other digital assets inside, is embarking on a crypto for good project.
On Tuesday, the NFT platform announced a partnership with artist Dina Brodsky, founder of the Birds for Sofia movement and partner in its crypto for good project.
Both parties plan to raise funds to save the life of Darina Sorokina, a Russian baby that suffers from spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The disease (SMA) is a degenerative disease that results in the gradual loss of motor control, ultimately resulting in the failure of muscles in the heart and lungs, causing death.
Most infants diagnosed with the disease do not survive past the age of two years old. Medicine to combat this degenerative disease is covered by insurance in most nations but is not in Russia, with treatment costing $2.1 million per patient.
Dina Brodsky’s previous “Bird by Bird” project is composed of 36 hand-painted NFTs that are nested in a single NFT, thanks to Charged Particles’ unique NFT technology. The 36 NFTs “Nested” in one is now up for sale to fundraise for baby Darina’s treatment.

This NFT will be minted on October 11, 2021, and seeks to raise the final $200,000 required to save Darina, with the medicine required to save her life.
“When we launched Charged Particles to bring new capabilities to NFTs, we were excited to see how the creative application of our technology would change the landscape,” said Ben Lakoff, CEO, Charged Particles. “Although we anticipated numerous possible charitable applications, we could not have imagined this group of over 1,000 artists, led by Dina Brodsky, that would come together to launch an NFT on Charged Particles to save the lives of babies suffering from this terrible disease. We could not be prouder of our association with Dina and the movement she has created.”
