From MetaSikhs, Hijabi Queens to The Kiddush Club- cultural NFTs to know about.

    The non-fungible tokens come with zero demographic barriers, anonymity, exclusivity, and yet, create a community of similar-minded people. But, when it comes to cultural grouping, what is the role of NFTs?

    Are they merely a symbol of a minority identity? Is this anything along the lines of CryptoPunk or Bored Ape, but with a new kind of art? The makers of these NFT collections highlight more than merely representing minorities.

    What the creators have to say:

    “To bridge worldwide communities through art influenced by culture,” MetaSikhs offers collectors a colorful and lively expression of their identity. The Hijabi Queens team is inspired by the NFT’s role in “solidifying a network of Muslim artists and entrepreneurs” and how it “serves to solidify a network of Muslim creators and entrepreneurs.”

    “The Kiddush Club” hopes that its NFTs will serve as a digital identification for Jews.
    Holders of all three platforms are promised a variety of additional resources. For example, in their masterclasses, they get access to certain private, members-only channels in Discord, IRL 9real life) events and networking opportunities.

    About MetaSikhs.

    Amar Bedi founded the NFT platform MetaSikhs while living in Singapore, during 2021.
    It is a limited-edition collection of 2,112 NFT pieces of art that portray Sikh culture in a variety of interesting virtual situations.

    Bedi, who is a turbaned Sikh, envisioned an NFT platform that would capture his people’s varied identities and bring representation to an under-represented population in the metaverse.

    These NFT pieces have 100+ qualities and were hand-drawn and curated specifically to provide impactful visuals and rarity. Through a blend of drawing style, Sikh culture, metaverse, and fashion, their team was able to reflect the open-minded Sikh community.

    About Hijabi Queens and Bearded Kings.

    Los Angeles-based Doaa Alhawamdeh and Karter Zaher intended to create the world’s first NFT token dedicated to representing Muslims in the Metaverse. They chose the names Hijabi Queens and Bearded Kings for the NFT.

    Hijabi Queens is a limited edition NFT collection of 10,000 one-of-a-kind artworks. Members who own an HQ get VIP access to the Hijabi influencers club.

    The couple explained that their notion was inspired in part by a conflict: the recent “increase of antisemitism”. Alhawamdeh and Zaher, the designers of Hijabi Queens, are a Palestinian-Jordanian couple. Alhawamdeh’s motivation is multifaceted as well, with her grandparents being Palestinian refugees, playing a significant role.

    About The Kiddush Club.

    In Montreal a couple thought about the very same idea as the above two but for a different culture. Oren and his wife Rebecca, started the first Jewish community dedicated NFT project and have since looked to increase the representation of women in the NFT space too.

    The Kiddush Club is made up of 3,600 Mensches, each with a unique and programmatically created NFT from over 100 features such as headwear, eyewear, apparel, and accessories. TKC welcomes everyone. Humans were created with a variety of skin colours, features, religious levels, and limitations in mind.

    On the Ethereum blockchain, Mensches areregualted under the standard ERC-721 guidelines. In the entire collection, there are SEVEN exceptionally uncommon Mensches with distinct hues and features. 1/1’s are what they’re called.

    Holders of The Kiddush Club token (TKC) will have the power to vote on which organisations the club supports. MetaSikhs intends to involve the community after the first collection is launched. Hijabi Queens has not yet divulged its governance rights, but it does have communication mechanisms in place to encourage strong debate in order to shape the platform’s future.
