In a positive development for the obsession with the non-fungible symbol (NFT), Canadian singer Kiesza is supporting a projection of an NFT called MetaMoves in partnership with the NFT marketplace Portion with the goal of providing funds to patients who need prosthetics.

In an interview with Cointelegraph, Kiesza said that as someone who has had an accident, the singer sympathizes with those facing the challenges of losing a limb. It explained:

“Movements are at the core of everything we do, because we understand the central role they play in people’s identities. […] You can only imagine how unbearable it would be to add the mental and physical challenges of losing a limb, and a lack of resources.”
The singer believes in the power of Web3 to help people. She also noted that helping people regain mobility is critical and in line with their mission at MetaMoves. Although the drop was backed by the well-intentioned singer, the highest bid at the close of the auction was 0.5 Ether (ETH), around $1,000 at the time of writing.

Jason Rosenstein, CEO of Portion, said the money will be donated to a foundation called MediPrint, which specializes in the design and 3D printing of prosthetics. 0.5 ETH will be used for a dog named Cuco and a young man named Jesus.

“We will use 0.5 ETH to print a prosthetic leg for Cuco, an adorable dog, and to print an arm for Jesus, the young man who lost his arm while saving some children from fireworks.”

Last week, singer Madonna also dropped the group NFT where the proceeds will go to three charitable organizations. The artwork provoked various reactions from the community as it showed the likeness of the singer, naked and the birth of centipedes, butterflies and trees.
