Black and White Music Productions is a Not for Profit (NFP) Organization which focuses around the original compositions of William Right, its Executive Director.
The main objectives of the NFP are to raise funds and awareness for Soldiers who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Operational Stress Injuries (OSIs), through the sale of William's original songs, compositions, live performances, and other activities.
Proceeds from sales are donated to our partner organizations, Wounded Warriors Canada, the Toronto Military Family Resource Centre, and future projects of the NFP.
We are pleased to announce the minting of a selection of William's professionally recorded songs, in the form of NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens). Proceeds from the NFT sales will go to our partner organizations to assist our Soldiers, and other projects of the NFP.
This is where we find ourselves today, with the creation of the Military Blockchain Ecosystem (MBE).
The MBE will aid the military community in caring for those who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Operational Stress Injuries (OSIs) through funds generated from blockchain transactions.
What it does
This project will expand on the work our founder William Right has already done, by creating a military blockchain ecosystem.
This will allow for the minting/mining of a new coin whose profits will support the provision of mental health services to military personnel globally.
How we built it
We created an ERC-20 token that will be connected to 0xBitcoin for mining.
Challenges we ran into
We didn't have the skills to create a working token as we would have liked, however we found that embracing our common cause led us to create a business plan and the token framework for future development.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our team of 3 formed organically around an important cause. Each one of us had just the right skill set to give the project life. Serendipitously we found that we all have a strong connection to Great Britain.
We've heard a lot about people making bank from crypto. This project amply illustrates the good that cryptocurrencies can do.
What we learned
We learned how quickly things can get done when people are inspired by something bigger than themselves.
What's next for Military Blockchain Ecosystem
We have a grand vision, we have a business plan and roadmap, we have the framework of a mineable token. Next up is to build a military blockchain ecosystem.
