Artists from all over the world are using NFTs for humanitarian purposes such as to support Ukraine against the Russian invasion.
Several online charity auctions such as Vandalz for Ukraine, ArtWaRks Ukraine, UkraineDAO, Holy Water and RtistiQ, organised by the NFT community, are leveraging their unique digital resources to provide relief to the country’s war-stricken people and their defence and healthcare systems.
Artists like Alexis Olin, Yura Miron, Artem Humilevskiy, Mykola Dosenko and Cher rnaya Rechka have been making waves in the NFT space because of their purpose-driven digital art.
Similarly, the Government of Ukraine is being looking into the metaverse in order to raise funds to fight the war against Russia through the work of the country’s Ministry of Digital Transformation, which posted on social media that Ukraine is accepting donations in form of Bitcoins and Ethereum. The Ministry also stated that it is minting 54 NFTs to raise awareness and money to oppose the Russian invasion.
The Ministry also launched a META-HISTORY MUSEUM OF WAR NFT SITE where buyers can splash their money on NFTs being sure that it is for a great cause!
The Meta History Museum of War has released two collections of just under 1,700 NFTs each, with a third, collaborative series just out on May 19, 2022. Its primary project, “Warline,” documented Russia’s invasion between February 24 and March 15, 2022. Each NFT in “Warline” is a collage, pairing tweets from the likes of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, BBC News, Justin Trudeau, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and the White House with dark, emotional, and defiant digital artworks by artists from around the world.
The museum is part of a larger trend: Since Russia invaded Ukraine, more than $60 million has been donated to the besieged country via the blockchain.
Although cryptocurrency, and specifically the NFT market, has grown exponentially in popularity in the last year, this is the first time so much crypto has been donated in response to a global crisis. It’s not just grassroots: Ethereum founder VitalikButerin donated 1,500 Ether (equivalent to about $5 million) to the Ukrainian government and local charities. Pussy Riot, Russia’s world-famous dissident feminist activist group, has been centrally involved in donating via an NFT project called UkraineDAO.
GO-GO NFTs…and carry on doing good stuff for the World !!!
