On December 3, 2021 a Millennium Sapphire Studio ‘Moon Man' NFT was sold at the inaugural NFT Basel charity auction in Miami for $20,000 to a fortunate bidder. NFT Basel was envisioned as an event to showcase the most cutting edge art form today, NFTs, and raise funds for social endeavors.
The event was hosted by Far Away Project's (Far Away), a 501 (c) (3).

The recipient of the $20,000 is Ocean Defenders. Ocean Defenders are an ocean literacy and environmental news platform, packaged in an animated series for children.
