NiftyTeddy is a collectible art project. Each art piece is stored as a "Non-Fungible Token" ("NFT") on the Cardano blockchain.
This project features 10,000 unique teddy bear art pieces, where each art piece is randomly generated and is permanently etched onto a NFT, minted as a native token on Cardano. The art pieces will be hosted on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) as well as on Arweave for permanence.
NiftyTeddies are now available for sale!
Each NiftyTeddy art piece comes in the form of a digital artwork of a bear.
Each of the 10,000 bear artwork for sale is unique.
Each NiftyTeddy will have a combination of items and/or an outfit that is unique to that art piece.
The art collection features 12 different species of bears: Hip Himalayan, Sassy Sun, Pawsome Panda, Slumbery Sloth, Spiffy Spectacled, Pensive Polar, Mannerly Moon, Kurious Koala, Groovy Grizzly, Bratty Brown, Blazing Black, and Sparkly Spirit Bear.

Donation to IBA Conservation Fund
We love bears. A lot.
As part of the NiftyTeddy project, we would love to spread awareness about declining populations of several species of bears around the world, and at the same time raise funds to support conservation efforts. The rarity of each bear species on NiftyTeddy will mirror that of its real-world population and conservation status. We commit to donating 5% of total proceeds of sales from this project to the IBA Conservation Fund, which will go towards bear research and conservation efforts.
According to the IUCN Red List, 6 out of the 8 main species of bears are in Vulnerable status. These Vulnerable populations include the sun bear, sloth bear, giant panda, spectacled bear, polar bear and the asiatic black bear (a.k.a. moon bear). The koala, although not technically a bear, is also in Vulnerable status. The other two species that are not in Vulnerable status are the brown bear and the American black bear. Both of these species of bears have a "least concern" status. However, it is worth noting that even the brown bear is at risk of local extinction in some countries or regions around the world.
Hello there! We are four guys who are very excited about Cardano and the crypto space in general. My name is Erwin, a software engineer. I work alongside Reuben, a digital artist, as well as Joel and Daniel, who are both app developers.
We can see how the application of blockchain technology is changing the world, and we would like to be part of the drivers for that change.
Last but not the least, we love bears. Part of the proceeds from this project will go towards starting a fund for bear conservation.
