Binance and APENFT to Cohost ApeAvatar Charity Mystery Box Event on September 6

SINGAPORE, Sep 3, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – Binance and APENFT will cohost the ApeAvatar Charity Mystery Box event opening on September 6. Centered around charity, the 60-day event incorporates NFT celebrity avatars and mystery boxes of designer toys to unleash greater potential for the NFT ecosystem. This marks another collaboration between the two after the Genesis NFT auction in June.



It is understood that the "ApeAvatar" event comprises two major sections – charity avatar claiming and the sale of select mystery boxes.

APENFT will create well-designed cyberpunk-style NFT avatars of 50 global influential people, including Justin Sun (founder of TRON) and Changpeng Zhao (founder and CEO of Binance), for them to claim. For each of the avatars claimed, APENFT will donate $5,000 to international philanthropic organizations such as One Tree Planted and Koala Clancy Foundation, in support of their tree planting projects.

In addition to the novel "celebrity + charity" activity, a select series of mystery boxes in a similar style to the celebrity avatars will also be launched at the event. This series features the classical Mona Lisa and David of Michelangelo, with each image composed of three independent parts – body, clothing, and colors – to endow the NFTs with uniqueness.

Earlier in June, APENFT joined hands with Binance and TRON and hosted the first auction on Binance NFT, which was titled Genesis. At the exclusive auction, the NFT version of Three Self-Portraits by Andy Warhol, a household pop artist, was sold for a spectacular $2.8 million. A total of 100 NFT artworks from the three series derived from Three Self-Portraits were sold out on Binance NFT as well. The auction concluded with record success on all fronts, including the quality and quantity of auction items and the closed deals.

APENFT and Binance are working together again to launch the ApeAvatar event, drawing on the clout of KOLs on social networks for charity auctions and leveraging the blockchain technology and NFT to boost support for philanthropic activities. This event showcases the potential in NFT, as well as the commitment of APENFT and Binance to the NFT field.

APENFT is backed by the underlying technology of top-notch blockchains Ethereum and TRON with support from the world's largest distributed storage system BitTorrent to deliver the mission of registering world-class artworks as NFTs on the blockchain. The foundation owns a collection of works by famous artists such as Pablo Picasso and crypto artists Beeple and Pak, with a total value of more than $30 million.

Embodying the combination of "art + technology", ApeAvatar guides people to co-build the Metaverse and to create a new era of digitalization, during which APENFT and Binance NFT will serve as a bridge for this great migration while fulfilling their own missions.

Washington, D.C., Aug 19, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – Years after his untimely death, Former World Heavyweight Boxing Legend is still delivering Knockouts. In the first every foray into the world of Blockchain, Muhammad Ali with his first ever collection of NFT's has landed yet another knockout punch. In conjunction with London based Photographer Christina Jansen, Dublin based Blockchain Developers dMerch and in association with UK Boxing Charity "Boxing Futures" "Muhammad Ali: Through the Lens – A Collection by Christina Jansen" sold out within 8 minutes. In a collection of beautifully sensitive images photographed by Christina Jansen, photographed over a two-week period in the 1980's, "Through the Lens" captures the inner sensitivity of the great man himself.






"Photographing Muhammad Ali was one of the most inspiring jobs I have ever had . Over a period of two weeks on and off the set I witnessed how he treated everyone who approached him the same. It didn't matter to Ali where you came from or what you did. I felt so blessed to have the chance to talk to him and get to know this great man like a close friend. Ali told me his Philosophy in life 'If you reach for the moon you might end up next door, but if you reach for the stars you will get to the moon'. He encouraged me and others to reach for their goals and not be afraid to take risks in life," said Christina Jansen. "Muhammad Ali had a gentleness outside the ring. He connected with everyone ..especially children. He had a generous heart and a great sense of humour and was constantly telling jokes.

"I took these photographs of the Greatest in 1986 in London. I have cherished these images but I have not showed them to the world thus far. I am so happy that using NFT's I can now share them with the old and new generation of fans. Keeping his unique spirit alive."

The collection went live at 6.00 pm and by 8 minutes past the hour, the collection had sold out. $150K of NFT's sold within minutes and to add further to the aura of the great man himself, a further $10K of NFT's were sold with the proceeds going directly to the Boxing Futures, a charity dedicated to supporting the Boxing stars of tomorrow.

World-Renowned Photographer Christina Jansen to Release First Muhammad Ali Digital Collectibles with dMerch.io

Washington, D.C., Aug 5, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – The Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) is partnering with world-renowned photographer Christina Jansen and Dublin-based NFT agency, dMerch.io to bring to life the Muhammad Ali Series 1 digital collection. The collection contains 136 unique digital collectables, all showcasing the vibrant personality of Ali himself and will be available on WAX blockchain starting on August 10, 2021 at 1pm EST / 10 am PST.


Christina Jansen


Throughout his iconic 21-year professional career, Ali was unconventional and incredible for the world to watch. He was an Olympic gold medalist, accumulated 56 victories, and was the first boxer in history to claim the heavyweight championship belt three times.

In 1986, Jansen and Ali met for the first time at a commercial shoot at Fulham Studios. Instantaneously, the duo connected, and Jansen admired Ali's humble nature. Since her encounter with Ali, Jansen has gone on to photograph celebrities, athletes, and fashion icons.

"Photographing Muhammad Ali was one of the most inspiring jobs I have ever had. Over a period of two weeks on and off the set I witnessed how he treated everyone who approached him the same. It didn't matter to Ali where you came from or what you did. I felt so blessed to have the chance to talk to him and get to know this great man like a close friend. Ali told me his Philosophy in life – If you reach for the moon you might end up next door, but if you reach for the stars you will get to the moon. He encouraged me and others to reach for their goals and not be afraid to take risks in life," said Jansen.

Adam Bouktila, COO for dMerch, praised Christina's photographs which have not been seen by a wider audience:

"This collection is amazing for the close connection between Ali and his photographer. These are not paparazzi shots taken at random. These are beautifully crafted images taken over a two-week period where subject and artist forged a close and powerful connection. The connection makes the images come alive.

"And with NFT technology we can now share these images with the world. As a Mohammed Ali fan this is a huge privilege for me to be involved in this project."

Since his passing in 2016, Ali's life and love for mentoring others will be revealed through Jansen's intimate, never-before-seen photographs for fans to collect and enjoy as digital collectibles on the WAX Blockchain. In her very first WAX collection, Jansen will offer the proceeds of an extremely special "Boxing Futures" pack featuring a single, ultra-rare Muhamad Ali digital photograph to aid Boxing Futures, an organization that aims to help disadvantaged youth by providing a safe space for them to improve their physical and mental health through boxing all while learning to build relationships and find motivation.

"This collection is both a personal and professional triumph that allows us to give back to a deserving group and pay homage to Muhammad Ali's legacy," says Jansen.

The intimate photos of the boxing superstar will be available in six (6) ring-worthy rarities, including:
– Classic
– Negative
– Gallery
– Photographer
– Championship
– Behind the scenes

As a special thank you for their support of the collection, Championship card buyers will be automatically entered into a randomized drawing for a chance to claim one (1) of (3) unique physical prints.

The Muhammad Ali Series 1 digital collection will feature 5,000 Classic Packs, 3,000 Photographer Packs, and 1,000 Boxing Futures Packs and are available in the following sizes:
– Classic Packs containing 5 digital collectibles for $19.99
– Photographer Packs containing 25 digital collectibles for $49.99
– Boxing Futures containing 1 digital collectible for $9.99

There will be a "stress test" prior to the official launch day on August 9 at 1pm EST / 10 am PST. Fans can sign-up through the official WAX Discord and will receive a free promo-pack as a "thank you" for participating.
