We chose to mint the Fisker by Hand: OCEAN Concept Collection NFTs on the Solana blockchain according to our ESG goals. Solana is a proof-of-stake blockchain, an energy-efficient solution since each transaction takes less energy than two Google searches and 24 times less energy than charging your phone. It’s significantly more environmentally responsible than a proof-of-work blockchain. Further, we are investigating methods to offset our carbon emissions from these transactions.

The acronym NFT stands for "non-fungible token," which means a specific, unique item, typically a digital work of art or collectible, but can also include tangible items such as paintings, sketches, trading cards, rare coins, or even a pair of sneakers.
NFTs are closely associated with blockchains, which provide the backing for an NFT. Blockchains offer a method for verifying the scarcity and authenticity of an NFT and a means to buy and sell.
The first NFT launched in 2014, and they are becoming an increasingly popular way to trade digital assets, often purchased through cryptocurrency.
Fisker Inc is always looking for ways to improve the relationship with our customers, fans, and stakeholders.
