We will sell 5555 digital cat art NFTs and 50 per cent of the proceeds will go to financially support organizations that drive rescue efforts. Bringing together cat lovers worldwide, with our NFT holders front and center, we aim to become a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) for people who share our desire to do some good for cats," said the startup in a statement.
