FAQ

What is an NFT?
A Non-fungible token (NFT) is a type of digital asset that represents ownership of a unique item or piece of content, such as a digital artwork, music, video, or other creative works. NFTs are stored on a blockchain, which provides a decentralized and tamper-proof ledger of ownership and transaction history.

What NFTs are available to be minted?
Limited edition cartographic NFTs created by TURF NFT on the Cardano blockchain representing maps of cities and countries of places of refugee crises. These NFTs are exclusively available during the Consensus 2023. There are two collections available, each supporting a different cause: The crisis in Ukraine and the most underfunded refugee crises.

Are there minting tiers?
This is a randomized sale. If you buy one NFT you will get one random NFT from the collection. If you buy five NFTs, you will get five random NFTs from the collection.

Who is benefitting from the minting of an NFT?
Depending on the NFT or collection of your choice the funds are distributed in the following way:

1. Collection: Underfunded Crises Collection

Funds go directly to WRFGS, the stake pool launched with the support of the Cardano Foundation to generate continuous rewards that support displaced people now and in future.

2. Collection: Ukraine Crisis
Funds are converted into fiat and transferred directly to UNHCR and are used for emergencies on the ground.

What is a stake pool ?
A stake pool is a reliable server node that focuses on ledger maintenance and holds the combined resources, the stake, of various stakeholders in a single entity. Stake pool operators run the stake pools and are responsible for processing transactions that will be placed in the ledger, as well as producing new blocks. Stake pools are at the core of Ouroboros, Cardano's proof-of-stake protocol.

Are there any risks in staking ?
Due to Cardano’s staking mechanism, funds are not locked and can be withdrawn at any time. There are no slashing penalties for stake pool operators harmful behaviour so delegators don’t have the risk of losing their funds.

Who can stake ?
Anyone can participate in staking with Switzerland for UNHCR. All purchases of NFTs supporting underfunded crises, will be delegated to the stakepool. You can also stake yourself.Current ada holders can delegate from their wallet using ticker [WRFGS]. Non-ada holders will need to follow the steps ‘How do I stake’ which includes downloading a wallet, purchasing ada, transferring ada to the wallet, and delegating stake.

What is the added value of using a blockchain technology solution in this case?
It is a new and innovative way of raising funds to help support our cause. The opportunity of a stake pool generating stake pool rewards enables an even larger community to make a difference and deliver lifesaving assistance to those most in need. It is a great way of continuously generating resources, which would then go towards UNHCR’s most urgent operations on the field.

How can Blockchain help refugees?
As the use of blockchain technology is continuously increasing to support real-world use cases, the benefits for fundraising and philanthropy are beyond doubt. In fact, the most beneficial features of blockchain are its enhanced security, increased transparency, and instant traceability. We value such qualities and see them as great advantages, however, for us at Switzerland for UNHCR, adopting the Cardano blockchain is first and foremost a new and innovative way of helping raise funds using staking to support people forced to flee.
