School fundraising needs to evolve along with the times and can also be a fantastic educational opportunity on crypto. Not only do a lot of options available take large fees but aren’t available in the global market. Lazy Moose is the future of NFT school fundraising and educational opportunities.
What are NFTs?
NFTs or Non-Fungible Tokens are a form of non-interchangeable data stored on the blockchain. This differs from Bitcoin in that each token is uniquely identifiable. NFT data may be associated with a variety of file types including video, images, audio, and hyperlinks. NFTs claim to offer a public ledger, but this claim has not been legally verified. NFTs do not restrict the sharing of the underlying content and cannot prevent the creation of another NFT with identical content.
NFTs have the potential to revolutionize how we interact with digital content. For example, imagine being able to own a piece of digital art that is unique and cannot be replicated. NFTs could also be used to create online marketplaces for digital assets, similar to eBay or Amazon. It is important to note that NFTs are still in their early stages and there are a number of challenges that need to be addressed before they can be widely adopted. For example, NFTs do not currently have a built-in mechanism for verification and authentication. This means that it is possible for someone to create a fake NFT and pass it off as the real thing.
What is Lazy Moose?
Lazy Moose seeks to connect schools with artists and developers in order to mint NFTs for fundraising or educational purposes. This collaborative effort can allow for a wide variety of projects, ranging from the development and minting of NFTs directly by students, or working with Lazy Moose to create an NFT for fundraising purposes. Lazy Moose is still actively developing relationships with artists, developers, athletics programs, and companies.
Imagine that you’re a teacher in charge of a high school robotics team. A season can be incredibly expensive, but fundraising can be a real challenge. Printing collectible items is expensive and time-consuming, but fans might actually want something to remember the season by. This is where Lazy Moose can come in. Rather than creating physical collectibles, you could instead mint NFTs to sell to fans, family, and booster clubs.
For example, if your team wins an award at a competition, you could mint NFTs representing the award itself. Then, those who are supportive could purchase that NFT to remember the season by. With Twitter’s new NFT integration for profile pictures, students could even set it as their profile picture in a hexagon, indicating that it’s real. This gives students and mentors the ability to support the team while also showing that support off online, hopefully bringing in additional supporters.
Lazy Moose is a startup that, like its namesake chordate mammal is burdened with a noble purpose. Bringing crypto-education and fundraising to people around the world. To learn more about Lazy Moose please visit the company’s website.
