This non-fungible token, a 3D animated digital designwill allow each Poncho Azul to have a digital identity as a member of this support community.
It will also allow you to show support for refugees and displaced persons by sharing the NFT as a digital collectible or by simply downloading and/or uploading it like any content through social networks.
Furthermore, it presents an innovative particularity since it is dynamic, which implies it its design is changing to reflect the level of participation: spending time as a donor, making the cause visible and calling others to join Ponchos Azules, making donations for specific emergencies, among other ways to show solidarity and engagement.
An interaction channel
At the same time, the NFT becomes another channel of interaction between the organization and its community.
It will work like a key that will guarantee, to whoever activates it, access eventsshares or benefits that will be attributed as the subject’s shareholding increases. For example, NFT owners could participate a raffle for a blue poncho by Benito Fernández or attend the annual Concert with Refugees of the Fundación ACNUR Argentina.

“We seek to integrate the entire solidarity ecosystem of which we are a part, giving our members, volunteers, partners and donors an intelligent and dynamic digital entity that connects them more to the cause and also to each other, and that this participation and engagement experience and that the connectivity between so many people supporting this cause becomes a major impact on refugees and displaced people,” she says.
