Miami’s Blockchain Trailblazer Raises $5M to Revolutionize Tokenization in the Community

Private equity firm Dargent Group recently sponsored a $5 million fundraiser for the Captain Haiti Foundation, a charitable trust focused on leveraging blockchain technology to tackle Miami’s housing crisis and gentrification of its Haitian community. The partnership will help residents acquire land, family homes, and commercial real estate, with the Little Haiti neighborhood as its focus. Captain Haiti Foundation’s Chairman, Nandy Martin, also known as Captain Haiti, plans to kick off the initiative by partnering with Web3 music infrastructure provider Nusic to release a limited edition geo-located NFT collection granting first-option real estate purchase rights to collectors. Additionally, the foundation seeks to raise $300,000 to beautify Little Haiti, with 30% of the funds allocated to community cleanups, public art, and planting greens called “Little Haiti Walls.” Two years ago, Martin secured the support of Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson and Miami District Commissioner Jeffrey Watson to revitalize the Little Haiti community using blockchain. Citing growing gentrification in his neighborhood resulting in unaffordable housing and emigration, Martin, known for his eccentric shield-caped outfit inspired by Captain America, intends to preserve the cultural heritage of Little Haiti for future generations.
