Qyuki Honors Late Founder Samir Bangara with Exclusive Musical NFT Collection
The set will drop at the WazirX NFT Marketplace over the next few weeks
At the 2021 edition of the annual conference, All About Music, Mumbai-based digital media agency Qyuki announced the release of an exclusive musical non-fungible token (NFT) collection in memory of their late founder Samir Bangara. Nine tracks from Qyuki’s inaugural season of their musical property Jammin and a bonus video of Bangara speaking at the event’s finale will drop on the WazirX NFT Marketplace over the next few weeks in the run-up to the festive season. The entire initial proceeds of this auction will be shared with Cuddles Foundation, the award-winning non-governmental organization (NGO) providing holistic nutritional support to children fighting cancer.
Each NFT will have a reserve price of ₹1,00,000 (in cryptocurrency equivalent on the day) and will represent a unique digital artwork immortalizing Bangara’s legacy.
Commenting on the announcement, Abhimanyu Radhakrishnan, Managing Director, Qyuki said, “We are thrilled to announce this initiative at All About Music 2021 and to be collaborating with WazirX NFT Marketplace to honor Samir’s memory. We miss him every moment and thus wanted to pay tribute in a way that cemented his legacy of being a visionary at the intersection of creativity and technology.” Vishakha Singh, VP WazirX NFT Marketplace added, “Samir Bangara was a legend, and he was helping and empowering creators with his company Qyuki by challenging the status quo. Since our NFT Marketplace launch, we have been focused on building launchpads for Indian creators.” Purnota Dutta Bahl, Founder & CEO, Cuddles Foundation said, “It’s great to see new technologies being used to promote both artists and charities like ours. We’re most grateful to Qyuki, WazirX NFT Marketplace and the artists for allowing us to be a part of this initiative.
