NFT To Support Breast Cancer


Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women and it has been recently estimated that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetimes. Two new NFT games have already been released on the blockchain that is designed to raise money for breast cancer research. The first game is called “Fight for Life” which was released by CryptoKitties creator Axiom Zen on October 13th, 2020. The second is BattleBreasts which launched on October 30th, 2020.

In the past, many people have struggled to get serious medical research funding. However, a new generation of crypto-based fundraisers has been born from the Non-Fungible Token craze. In recent months, there have been two games focused on tackling a serious issue — breast cancer research.

The first is called “Breast Cancer Awareness: A Crypto Casino Game” and it was developed by one individual named Dana Nguyen in December 2018. She spent about $100 to make her project come to life, but she did not expect anyone to play it outside of herself at first (she expected maybe five users). But as time went on and more people began playing the game online and interacting with each other via Discord chat rooms dedicated solely for Breast Cancer Awareness: A Crypto Casino Game (BCATCG), she realized that her game had become something much bigger than she ever expected!

NFT Taking A Humane Step

This isn’t the first such game to be released, with CryptoKitties being a notable example. However, NFTs don’t always have to be pointless or comical; they can also provide a platform for raising awareness and money for serious causes.

In 2019, the blockchain-based game CryptoPuppies raised funds for cancer research by donating half of their profits to charity. They’ve also partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America and Walt Disney Animation Studios to help support children’s hospitals through art therapy programs at Ronald McDonald Houses across the country.

Other NFT games have used similar strategies to raise awareness while bringing more people into crypto:

  • World Wildlife Fund is using blockchain technology in its “#BlockforGood” campaign aimed at raising money for endangered species protection around the globe — an effort that has already attracted more than 1 million participants thus far!
