Over the past period, the Arab world, especially the UAE, witnessed the launch of several NFT projects. Among the recently-launched projects, which achieved wide popularity in the UAE, was Crypto Arabs. 

What Is Crypto Arabs? 

Crypto Arabs is an NFT project, consisting of 9,999 unique art pieces derived from 10 main characters of the Emirati popular cartoon show “Shaabiat Al Cartoon.” Each NFT in this collection embodies the spirit of the Middle East in design and benefits. The collection’s main goal is to build a long-term community, exceeding the NFTs’ noise. 

Crypto Arab NFTs are not only a collectible asset, but they also give their owners access to:

  •  “Learn to Earn” initiatives in the metaverse.
  • Charity participation by allocating part of the purchase proceeds’ revenues to charity, especially the Rashid Center for People of Determination. 
  • Communicating with major investors and influencers in this sector. 

By owning at least one NFT in this collection, the owner will be a part of the community enjoying its benefits.
