Daniel Kim, CEO and Founder of MerchNFT stated “”As an Asian American, I’ve been horrified with the rise of violent attacks on our AAPI community. My team and I wanted to use our resources to help bring more awareness to these issues and thought NFTs could be a creative way to help raise funds for charities. We also wanted to showcase some of the leading AAPI influencers who have had a direct impact on American culture as we know it today.”
