Chicago will allow vaccinated youth to print their own NFTs as part of the COVID-19 prevention effort.
The Face Forward Project, a COVID-19 prevention effort focused on vaccination, turns the portrait of vaccinated youth into NFT.
According to the Chicago government statement, the project aims to reward young people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19. Teens will be able to NFT print their portraits to keep in a secondary market or resell later. NFT multimedia platform VAST will give NFT to young people who choose to participate, and each NFT will include an excerpt from the work of Chicago-based musician Keith Harris.
While NFTs have been used to increase charitable donations, this seems to be one of the first times digital collectibles have been used to reward public health initiatives, particularly those opposing the coronavirus pandemic.
