Wayru Launched to Solve Global Internet Accessibility Issues
The launch of the new Wayru project has impressed Algorand users this week. Wayru is dedicated to increasing global access to the internet with as many as 4 billion people currently unconnected. Owners of Wayru’s Airblock NFTs fund Wayru’s ventures in providing internet connectivity to Latin Americans who currently lack access.
“80% of AirBlocks sales will go directly to connect people to the Internet in low-income communities where they cannot afford to pay for access,” Wayru says.
“For each AirBlock sale, we’ll connect a person to the Internet for a whole year. This NFT holds all the data that was imprinted from the network back to the blockchain of the usage and performance of certain node. This data includes GB of traffic, connected users, and overall community performance data thanks to the connectivity provided.”

Al Goanna has this week been added to the Seattle NFT Museum as part of their new Climate Conservation exhibition.

This recognition gives Algorand NFTs a chance to shine on a cross-chain initiative.
