Future Rhinos in the NFT space

Future Rhinos NFT will be a collection of 9 999 unique NFTs with their main goal to raise sustainable funding for circular rhino conservation impact.

Can Future Rhinos NFTs make a real world difference?

Community building is very important to the Future Rhinos team and we aim to collaborate with other NFT projects to maximize our reach and form strategic collaborations and partnerships. 

We are also teaming up with real-world entities, like @ProjectRhinoKZN, that share the same values. Our goal is not to be a once-off project, but to build a strong team and foundation to fuel future projects in the Web3 space that will create real-world impact.

The Future Rhinos team believes that the Web 3.0 world can, and will have direct world impact.
