This will enable them to create and decide how The Hero 25FPS is created on the Tezos blockchain.
Marina Abramovic and CIRCA have partnered to create the HERO Fund, a new initiative that supports activists and changemakers in Web3 communities. A percentage of the funds raised from The Hero 25FPS NFTs will be circulated back into the Tezos Web3 community in the form of grants from this initiative.
