Welcome to NFTMetta.com!
We are a new media platform that is dedicated to promoting not only the growth of the global non-fungible token markets and Web 3.0, but also those who promote the sale of NFTs for charitable purposes or causes that help to create positive impacts on the lives of those around them. It is with that purpose in mind that we are aligned with Hong Kong-based Impact NFT Alliance, an industry group that promotes impact investing in global NFT markets, and which has appointed NFTMetta.com as its formal media partner.
Our world is currently facing the worst financial markets volatility since the global financial crisis of 2008. At that time, leaders of global markets and sovereign states all over the world — irrespective of development phase they were in, or their political system — whether “democracies” or “authoritarian states” — came together to work in alignment of one purpose: arrest the panic, particularly panic caused by the near catastrophic collapse of US markets and those across Europe, and to create a safety net in terms of coordinating currency and central banking policies that united the world, both so-called industrialized nations, developing nations and emerging markets.
The global financial markets crisis of 2022 is altogether different. It comes on the heels of year after year natural disasters caused by global climate change, a three-year pandemic caused by the emergence of the Covid 19 virus, which doesn’t seem to wish to go away, rising trade and political tensions between the USA, the world’s largest economy, and China, the world’s second largest economy, and the recent launch of Russia’s war on Ukraine in Eastern Europe.
This time, it seems the USA and members of the G7 nations (Europe and Japan) seem to be united in seeking punishment of Russia and escalating weapons sales to Ukraine, while many developing nations, chief among them China and India — the world’s most populous nations, seem to be calling for truce and peaceful settlement in the Russia and Ukraine conflict.
Industrialized nations can’t seem to agree with developing nations, and the lack of global coordination means the global financial crisis of 2022 may last far longer than the one of 2008, especially as inflation rises rapidly on the back of rising prices of oil, gas and commodities, all of which are produced in plentiful supplies by Russia but boycotted by G7 countries.
Despite the impending gloom in the global markets, we at NFTMetta.com remain optimistic about the future of mankind and believe there is hope that the madness currently driving the world’s politicians will ease as a new generation of younger leaders rise, a younger generation less brainwashed by old Cold War mentalities, and more enlightened by the Sustainable Development Goals as set forth by the United Nations in 2015.
We aim to profile future thought leaders, especially those who are launching NFTs for various charitable causes, causes that improve the lives of those around them, helping the world grow a large middle class — irrespective of where they may live, whether in “democracies” or in “authoritarian states”, and together achieve UN SDGs. It is with that purpose in mind that NFTMetta.com will launch a Chinese language version to target readers in China, which has the world’s largest growing middle class, in the coming weeks.
Please join us in celebrating the launch of NFTMetta.com. We aim to tell stories that put a smile on your face, give you hope, by profiling those among us who are leaders in promoting impact investing in global NFT markets.
We can’t put an end to the madness surrounding us, but we can at least try to put a smile on your face and give all of us hope in the belief that there is a future for ALL humanity, irrespective of where they live.
