‘While Russia uses tanks to destroy Ukraine, we rely on revolutionary blockchain tech’: Ukraine’s Vice PM launches collection of 54 NFTs to support country’s ‘army and civilians’

  • Ukraine is trying to raise funds by selling NFTs based on key events of Russia war
  • Non-fungible tokens are unique computer files that act as a digital certificate of ownership, and can be in form of a creative product such as a song or work of art
  • A total of 54 NFTs will be listed online, covering first three days of the invasion 

Four days into the invasion, Ukraine started issuing old-fashioned war bonds to finance military action.

Now it is trying a very modern initiative – raising funds by selling NFTs based on key events of the war with Russia so far.

NFTs or non-fungible tokens are unique computer files that act as a digital certificate of ownership for anything from a song to a work of art.

All the money raised will go to support the ‘army and civilians’ of Ukraine. Launching the collection, Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov tweeted: ‘While Russia uses tanks to destroy Ukraine, we rely on revolutionary blockchain tech.’
