Blockchain technology took the world by storm, seemingly overnight. While investors are looking for the next 10x coin or “moonshot”, purpose driven companies are finding unique ways to use the new technology and web 3 culture to do good. Historically, small groups of dedicated people with a purpose make the biggest waves. “Using Blockchain As a Force For Good” is a short series exploring some of these projects.
Recently, Artist For Addicts had a stealth launch of Recovery Punks, a Crypto Punk inspired project designed to bring awareness to, change the conversation about and fund addiction recovery and connection.
On the Artist for Addicts website ( https://artistsforaddicts.com/ ) you will see:
“The Mission of Artists For Addicts is to change the global conversation surrounding addiction from one of judgement to one of compassion, using art as a force for good.”
Recovery Punks is an extension of that mission; using art on the blockchain as a force for good. The project is keeping marketing and “hype” to minimum and instead using education and connection to slowly mint out the entire 10k connection. The Recovery Punks community has contributed by opening up twitter spaces and inviting the public to join the conversation: a conversation about addiction recovery and connection, which Artist for Addicts believes is one of the most important conversations to be had in the current crypto landscape.
The royalties on Recovery Punks are set at 2.5%, 100% of which goes to Artist for Addicts to continue to find creative and fun ways to educate and change the global conversation about addiction.
The Recovery Punks community has formed a council that will allow them to create governance that can increase the royalties, build a community treasury and direct the project through community contribution and vote.
Many investors will continue to follow the hype, looking for the next big thing. The companies, projects and organizations that are finding ways to use new technology and web 3 culture to have an impact might have the last laugh. Their communities are small, but they are hyper-engaged and the reach extends beyond the early adopters of crypto.
While we will have to wait and see what happens, this is a recipe for massive impact and long term success. An important cause, a strong community, real world implications and a founder with an incredible track record. Our team will have our eyes glued to Recovery Punks in 2023.
Recovery Punks is one of the many projects published by Wolf Den Labs focused on having a real impact on people in the real world.
