CoinJournal learned from a press release that a social experiment by Dutch artist Dadara and NFT digital rights management platform RAIRtech led to the creation of CryptoGreyman's 7.9 billion digitally identical NFT, a character brought to life by the artist 30 years ago.

Support refugee reception worldwide

The project has partnered with Movement on the Ground, a nonprofit organization dedicated to hosting refugees with dignity worldwide, an issue that is now more important than ever.

Refugees have difficulty obtaining the identification needed to seek asylum, and the government often sees them as paperwork makers rather than people fleeing a terrible situation.

Polygon provides L2 for mint drop

Polygon offers a Layer 2 solution to cast the drop, which occurred on Feb. 22 at 2:22 p.m. EST. But what is this project about? The NFTs are physically identical, but each has its own serial number and is shelved in the order in which it was cast. Each NFT in this collection costs 1 MATIC.

Dardara Review.

I think this is a very serious prank that rattles the cage of consensual reality and lifts the mood of the conversation. This is an experiment with unpredictable results. No one particular NFT is better than another, and since mint prices are readily available, it will be interesting to see what value each CryptoGreyman holder brings to the table.

Garrett Minks, RAIRtech's Chief Technology Officer, adds.

This year, the whole idea of NFT "status symbols" has really taken off, to the point where people will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on Bored Ape NFTs or other PFP programs and will use digital uniqueness to define them. The program is more democratized and the barrier to entry is intentionally lower. When a person purchases CryptoGreyman, the additional serial number is theirs. This number, if they choose to keep it, will remain theirs until the end of time, or until the blockchain ceases to exist.

Web3's potential to change social perceptions

The project reflects the idea that businesses and governments are reducing their personnel to numbers, while social media pressures them to be different.

Against this paradoxical backdrop, the project hopes to stimulate discussion about the potential of Web3 to create a more realistic portrait of humanity.
