WEYU, in partnership with the UNHCR and WorldVision with Refugees and 7 algorithms came together for WEYU Pieces. The first of its kind to use blockchain technology throughout the entire art crowdsourcing process.
When an artist donates a work of art, it is fragmented into thousands of pieces using artificial intelligence. The pieces are placed on the blockchain and crowdsourced out to refugees who re-create each fragment, through their own vision, one piece at a time with digital art tools.
Refugees contributing to the digital art pieces use blockchain to receive, make, and submit their art creations as well as earn cryptocurrency in real-time. All the metadata from each refugee art contribution is compiled and made into inspiring animations that show how these unique crowdsourced masterpieces come together. The final result is minted on the Solana blockchain in a lottery. All proceeds go to Refugees through the UNHCR.
