Pray.com announced the launch of its first NFTs ahead of the this year’s National Day of Prayer. The Congress sanctioned event to hold on the first Thursday in May. And this year’s event has some cryptocurrency undertones.
Pray.com to gift Prayer coin for participating in National Day of Prayer
Pray.com is the first faith-based company launching into the metaverse. With the release of the original prayer NFT as part of its Web3, Crypto and Metaverse educational initiative, PRAY TEAM. This launch is also targeted at Christians wishing to learn about cryptocurrency. So, anyone who participates in the National Day of Prayer livestream will receive the NFT, a National Day of Prayer coin.
Fostering Crypto adoption among Christians
According to Ryan Beck Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder of Pray.com.
“This is a unique opportunity for the Christian community to be at the forefront of technology and help shape it for good. Crypto, Web3, NFTs and the Metaverse are reshaping the future of technology, and Pray.com is leading the charge for Christians around the world to be a part of it by building the first global community for Christians to learn about crypto, and by creating new technologies for faith-based content.”
Pray.com will work with the National Day of Prayer Task Force, Open3.com, POAP.xyz, and Polygon.technology to introduce Christians to the world of Crypto. This unique partnership will offer a unique Proof of Attendance NFT to attendees of this year’s National Day of Prayer. Pray.com also plans to launch the NFT on the Polygon network using the Proof of Attendance Protocol (POAP).
Dr. Malachi O’Brien, a leader in the NFT and POAP space, stated the significance of the event. He said that “Pray.com is making Web3 history with its National Day of Prayer NFT.”
Furthermore, Beck added that.
“Web3 is growing at a rate of over 100% year-over-year and is expected to reach 1 billion users by 2027. This is exciting for Christians and the Church because these technologies bring power to communities and people rather than platforms. They enable communities and people to take back ownership of their data and protect themselves from censorship.”
Crypto a tool for kingdom growth
In fact, early adopters of the Christian community, such as James Lawrence and Matt Hayes at Engiven.com, have already started to explore the potential of Web3. They have also created a platform to make cryptocurrency donations accessible to 501c3 organizations.
According to Lawrence, Engiven’s Co-founder and CEO. “Cryptocurrency is rapidly becoming a powerful new asset to spur on generosity and elevate Kingdom growth. We’re seeing significant engagement from both givers and ministries as crypto and NFTs are leveraged to bring greater financial impact and ministry self-reliance.”
“We believe in freedom of religion and the promise of Web3 technology to create a censorship-free future,” said Steve Gatena, Founder and CEO of Pray.com. “This is the first step toward that future for the Church.”
