Simplex and Project Ark Join Forces to Enable Funding of Environmental Conservation Through ImpactNFT Purchases
Simplex, a Nuvei company and the leading fiat infrastructure for digital assets globally, has partnered with Project Ark, a blockchain-powered platform that supports animal and environmental conservation projects by creating and selling ImpactNFT collectibles. Thanks to Simplex, users will be able to purchase these NFTs directly without the need to leave the dedicated NFT platform.
The purchase of Project Ark’s collectible ImpactNFTs aims to ensure transparent and guaranteed transactions to associations and NGOs who work towards environmental protection and carbon offsetting, creating a blockchain-based decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) to help protect the environment.
Thanks to its partnership with Simplex, users will be able to buy Project Ark’s NFTs directly from the marketplace, without needing to top up external compatible wallets and connecting them to the platform.
Given the recent environmental scrutiny of blockchain-based projects, it is fundamental for Simplex to offset every blockchain transaction’s carbon footprint through impactful collaborations with platforms such as Project Ark. Joining initiatives to offset carbon emissions and foster climate change education will ultimately align Simplex with the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
“We are excited to help Project Ark reach the much wider audience that it deserves,” said Nimrod Lehavi, CEO and Co-founder at Simplex. “Today, many people want to support environmental causes however they can, and NFTs are certainly one powerful mechanism for doing so. By making it simple to purchase Project Ark NFTs with familiar fiat methods, we can vastly expand its reach.”
“Blockchain technology has created new solutions and space in the financial world”, said Mihai Hrimiuc, Project Co-Lead at Project Ark. “But it still needs to find its path into a more sustainable reality. Project Ark’s objective is to blend NFTs and cryptocurrencies together with the mission of creating positive environmental and social impact. Thanks to Simplex’s partnership, we are reaching a wider audience and are one step closer to realizing our vision.”
Simplex, part of $15 billion company Nuvei, is the fiat/crypto infrastructure for the entire world. An EU-licensed financial institution, Simplex aims to change the status quo of the current crypto markets by providing simple, seamless, and secure channels to convert over 50+ fiat currencies to 100+ cryptocurrencies. Simplex already empowers its vast network of partners to accept the widest range of payment methods, including Visa, MasterCard, Apple Pay, SWIFT, SEPA, and more.
