Magic Mozart NFT (0.3 ETH)

Magic Mozart NFT

Our first large-scale philanthropy project, Magic Mozart, bridges history with with modern technology using non-fungible tokens (NFTs). While many think of Bored Apes or CryptoPunks as the pioneers of NFT art, Mozart's 18th-century "Musical Dice Game" allowed music composition with dice rolls, making him an early inventor of randomized art.

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique digital assets verified by blockchain. Our project leverages them to fund and celebrate creativity, echoing Mozart's innovative spirit. Thanks to our amazing supporters, Living Opera community members were able to study voice in Italy. We can't wait to expand this program in the future! Watch our community's journey in Italy.
