The Foresight Institute has launched LAB Gallery, a digital platform that sells artists' NFTs to philanthropists to support scientists and technologies. 

Users can bid on and acquire new non-fungible tokens (NFTs), with proceeds going to the development of transformative technologies.

The LAB is a "purpose driven digital art gallery" that connects "technology innovators, digital creators, and philanthropic collectors to steer together towards grand outcomes." Sales will support nanotechnology, biotechnology, computer science, machine learning, and cryptography, the LAB says. The NFTs "provide a unique piece of collectible art as proof of support."
