Hey SheltersOnTheBlock here. We respect your perspective on our project and this wouldn't be the first time we hear similar statements. With that being said, we would like to clarify our perspectives and mission with this project.

SheltersOnTheBlock wants to capture the success stories of those who overcame homelessness and have them be an inspiration to others. The individuals being featured on our Sponsor NFTs will be success stories of those who have been in permanent housing for several years now.

We want to showcase those success stories who overcame the odds to inspire others but also bring awareness to the issue. It's like having a picture of a family member or someone close who you know.

Also, we would like to state that we are adding 20% royalties to all NFTs, which will redirect those funds back to Uncle Dave's Housing. We did this to discourage the community from treating these NFTs like ''trading cards". Instead, the way we see it, is that each time an NFT is resold on the secondary market, a donation is happening again.

Where are you hosting the images and what’s your strategy to make sure that the images remain available?

IPFS and we also plan to link exclusive interview videos to the NFTs. These videos will only be available to the holders. While the community videos and content will be available on YouTube.

We are a non-profit NFT project with the mission of alleviating homelessness in the city of Los Angeles. All our proceeds from the NFT sale will go towards housing 16 men who are in danger of becoming homeless for up to 5 months each. I am their strategic advisor and we could use all the support we can get.

Ngl that was a clever diss to us Cardanians lol. But it's okay we believe in our ecosystem. It's changing the blockchain game.

We never give up on ourselves, thank you Cardano!

Thank you!!!! A side benefit that we want to accomplish is to show the world that NFTs and blockchain have many potential use cases. Many of which have not been explored yet.

We believe that SheltersOnTheBlock will be a pioneer on this front, by working between the intersection of blockchain and philanthropy. Together we can show the world the amazing potential of blockchain technology.

Say it louder!!! We want to break outside the box that NFTs have to be an investment which make you money.
