Retreeb and the UN launch a collection of NFTs against malnutrition
This NFT collection will be officially launched on Friday, March 3, 2023. The idea of Jérémi Lepetit, CEO of Retreeb, in collaboration with Unitlife, an initiative of the United Nations (UN), is to fight against chronic malnutrition. Chronic malnutrition is a widespread yet little-known disease.
titled “ 17 goals for the future “, the collection presents the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. This is in order to provide a common plan of peace and prosperity for people and the planet.
Each lens is represented by two digital artworks projecting an optimistic version and a dystopian version of the future. Each of them will release between 2 and 5 copies and will be auctioned today.
Chronic malnutrition is little known. In truth, it is a disease that affects approximately 150 million children in the world. This is the result of poor nutrition during the first 1000 days of a child’s life, including in utero.
Children who do not receive adequate and nutritious food at this critical time in their lives suffer from irreversible conditions such as growth slowdown, A impaired brain development, A weakened immune system and an shortened life expectancy.
Thus, all profits from the sale of the 174 digital works of the 17 Future Goals collections will be shared with Unit Life. This initiative of United Nations is committed to fighting chronic malnutrition around the world.
EUROC – A new euro stablecoin exchangeable on Coinbase
Until then, it was possible to deposit certain stablecoins in euros on the platform. For example Tether’s EURT and Stasis Euro (EUR). However, EUROC will be the first euro-denominated stablecoin that can be exchanged for other cryptocurrencies on Coinbase.
Founded by Circle, which already issues USDC, EUROC is sometimes seen as one of the world’s strongest contenders for a euro stablecoin. However, it still has a long way to go before it catches up with its biggest competitor. Its market capitalization is currently 29 million euros, against 205 million euros for the EURT.
Will the euro manage to make a place for itself in a cryptocurrency market saturated with dollars? For now, stable dollar market caps will not work in the same space. For example, USDT has a market capitalization of 66 billion euros. Another point that can be raised: the most commonly used euro stablecoins are issued by American companies. Closing out the EURC, Adan pointed out in an interview with Cryptoast:
“The issuance of EUROC by Circle is not the first event that attests to a deep and persistent problem for the European digital asset industry: stablecoins backed by the euro in relatively large volumes are issued by companies across the Atlantic. »
This American hegemony can be frowned upon because European players seem to be rare. Considering this, the future European MNBC dreams of becoming the hegemonic digital currency of the Old Continent. If in doubt as to whether this can be achieved, we can only note that there are currently no national cryptocurrency competitors.
