Alex Bornyakov, Ukraine’s deputy minister of digital transformation, announced that the government will begin a non-fungible token (NFT) collection as a historical record of the country’s present atrocities, which are being targeted by Russia.
Bornyakov was quoted in the Guardian as saying,
The NFT collection would be “like a museum of the Russian-Ukrainian war. We want to tell the world in NFT format.”
Bornyakov further stated that each token will have a piece of art that depicts a story from a reputable news source, stating:
“We want it to be cool, good-looking, and it takes time.”
Several days ago, it was stated that the previously discussed airdrop would be canceled and replaced with NFTs.
Bornyakov stated that Ukraine’s “digital diplomacy” had had results, claiming that a number of social media platforms – which he defined as one of the Kremlin’s weapons in this conflict – are censoring or labeling Russian official media content. “Most of their weaponry has been rendered ineffective. After two weeks, we’ve arrived at this point. “This is what I refer to as positive results,” he stated last week.
Crypto and NFT donations continue to pour in, with Bornyakov recently stating that the monies are being used to purchase military equipment and other essentials.
Crypto-related donations to Ukraine have now reached nearly USD 77 million, according to SlowMist AML data. A week earlier, it was USD 69 million. Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at over USD 39,000 at the time of writing, up nearly 2% in a week.
