Wildchain is a digital mirror on the blockchain where every unique token represents a real endangered animal living in the wild, one-to-one. The tokens are collectible, tradable and playable in various games (mobile, AR, VR). Users are passively contributing to conservation and reforestation projects solely by participating in this entertainment ecosystem. Users may also actively allocate their donations on a fully transparent kickstarter-like platform which will give visibility into the impact they have created.
Mental Health issues is one of the most stigmatised subject. People often think that our brain is beyond the possibility of going haywire. However that is not true, just like any other organs, our brain as complex as it is can fall sick too. Mental health issues covers everything from Depression to Schizophrenia to Bipolar. Often time those who are sick do not get the right help and fall victim of suicide. Sati is a project that aims to create awareness of the situation whilst working on creating a suicide prevention application.
