Heading to the Ethereum blockchain this January is a collection of 1000 “Patchwork Kingdoms” NFTs. Each designed using real world data from the Giga project, a global initiative to connect every school on the planet to the world wide web. The images have also been manipulated by data scientist and artist, Nadieh Bremer, to produce a visually astounding collection.
Each NFT represents a snapshot in time of exactly where Giga has reached in its initiative. A digital memory of the progression of the project, and a stark reminder of how much work is still to be done, highlighting a goliath task to link up the world’s estimated 1.3 billion disconnected children by utilizing the latest hi-tech solutions such as low orbit satellites, machine learning, and the blockchain.
Each artwork by @NadiehBremer is based on data from our open-source map. Collectors will form a community helping us connect every school to the internet.
