Fans of the legendary Burning Man metropolis and its devoted Mayan Warrior community have a new way to preserve its future prospects both on and off the playa. 

Blockchain technology has long been lauded as a more transparent and cost-effective means of fundraising. Now Mayan Warrior, one of the world's premier artistic communities is embracing its possibilities.

The organization, which operates as a 501(c)(3), has announced the "Mayan Warrior Amulet," an offering of digital assets to directly support the artistic endeavors that have built the community into a creative powerhouse over the last decade. By purchasing the blockchain-powered assets, the community's members can directly fund artists to help "produce, bring, and display their live interactive art to the playa and at their shows," according to a press release shared with EDM.com.
