Crypto Community Engages in Ukraine as Works by Local NFT Artists Sell Out

It seems that crypto enthusiasts from all over the world are coming together to support the Ukrainians during the difficult times.

According to reports, Bitcoin donations (BTC) to Come Back Alive, a non-governmental organization that aids Ukraine’s military efforts, received $3 million worth of BTC in a single donation on Friday. Users also took to social media to ask the country’s Ministry of Defense to accept crypto donations, such as Tether (USDT). At the same time, the founder of Ukraine’s Kuna exchange created a crypto fund to to help to the country’s charities.

Everyone! Thanks for all the support and donations! The current plan is divided into 3 parts to involve as many as possible

1) direct donations (aimed at individuals)
2) NFT auction (via Telegram and Opensea)
3) Project % commitment (for collections and projects)

On Friday, the outpouring of support gained more strength. Non-fungible token (NFT) artist “pan_danil” has started organizing a campaign to direct donations, launch NFT auctions, and commit a percentage of project sales to NFT artists in Ukraine. At the time of publication, a group of volunteers had been formed to create a community list of Ukrainian NFT artists and links to their artwork on NFT platforms such as Rarible, Foundation and OpenSea.

I need a trackable list of Ukrainian artists to support. Tweets/lists don’t work… I spend time reviewing responses instead of helping.

If some people can volunteer their time to add Ukrainian artist links to this sheet, that would be great. Send me a private message.

Meanwhile, other Ukrainian artists such as “voplividchau” have reported that their NFT releases have sold out due to community support. But despite the successful sale, she wrote:

Now Kiev is very scary [Kyiv]; it was terrifying at night, and what will happen next is terrifying. I admire how brave the people here are.

SOLD OUT friends! I am eternally grateful for your support! This is HUGE!

The Orica NFT platform, which launched an NFT campaign to help build a school in Uganda last year and coordinated a charity NFT giveaway to help victims of human trafficking, has expressed its support for NFT artists. from Ukraine on Twitter. It also appears that the platform is incorporating directly to Ukrainian NFT artists for upcoming exhibitions.
