Last Friday, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov announced that Ukraine will sell NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), with proceeds from the collection benefiting the country’s army and civilian population.
On the launch of the NFT collection, Fedorov tweeted: “While Russia uses tanks to destroy Ukraine, we rely on revolutionary blockchain technology.”
The collection, titled Metahistory: Museum of War, is inspired by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and examines the events that arose from the war in chronological order. The collection contains 54 NFTs in total and covers the first three days of the invasion.
One of the NFTs celebrates a woman in Kyiv, Ukraine, who gave birth on the subway. Another shows a tweet from Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the flags of the G7 countries. The tweet reads: “This is a catastrophe for our continent. I’m going to address the nation this morning about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. I will also speak to other G7 leaders and call for an urgent meeting of all NATO leaders as soon as possible.’
Created by a mix of Ukrainian and international artists, the NFT works are said to have been inspired by social media posts and headlines related to the invasion.
After release, buyers can purchase NFTs from this collection with them cryptocurrency Ether.
