Non-fungible token (NFT) art projects in support of Ukraine have sparked a lot of interest recently, with many artists from Ukraine and beyond grabbing at the chance to help.
Here is a summary of some of the Ukraine-related NFT initiatives to date to help readers get an insight of the many projects that now exist where proceeds go to benefit Ukrainian people in various ways:
– Wladimir Klitschko, the brother of Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko, has released an NFT collection on the OpenSea marketplace called Vandalz for Ukraine: WhIsBe x Wladimir Klitschko to help his motherland. The money will go to the Red Cross of Ukraine and UNICEF. Prices begin at ETH 0.04 and go up from there (USD 104).
– On March 2, UkraineDAO, a decentralised autonomous organisation founded by a member of Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot as well as NFT collectives Trippy Labs and PleasrDAO, auctioned off an NFT displaying a Ukrainian flag for ETH 2,258 (USD 5.9 million). Although the auction has ended, supporters are still welcome to donate to UkraineDAO.eth directly.
– In conjunction with the NFT platform Vault, Ukrainian news publishers Ukrainska Pravda, Novoye Vremya, and Hromadske are presenting exclusive material from inside Ukraine behind an NFT-powered paywall. “A collaborative fundraiser in an effort to help support ongoing efforts to deliver reporting on the Russian invasion,” according to the project’s description.
– Chernaya Rechka, an independent NFT artist based in Kyiv, reported on the day the war broke out that her third Objikt NFT drop had sold out, though more NFTs were added afterwards. “My warmest hugs and deepest love to my great collectors who have kept me safe during these trying times,” she wrote in a March 9 post.
– On OpenSea, A Gallery, which represents a number of well-known Ukrainian painters, including Waone Interesni Kazki, is offering NFTs of some of the artists’ most famous paintings. Several of the sales will go toward assisting people in Ukraine, including assistance for groups like Save the Children Ukraine.
– On OpenSea, ArtWaRks Ukraine, an NFT project aiming at assisting the Ukrainian Army and citizens in need, has launched a number of NFTs related to the conflict in Ukraine. Prices begin at 0.07 ETH (USD 182).
– Holy Water, a Ukrainian gaming business, has launched a campaign to raise more than USD 1 million for Ukrainians affected by the conflict through the selling of NFTs. The campaign has already formed agreements with galleries representing over 200 Ukrainian artists, with 100% of the proceeds raised going to charity.
– Ikonia, a Kyiv-based incubator and NFT platform, has created a new collection of 43,302,531 NFTs – one for each Ukrainian citizen – to generate donations for three Ukrainian charities. The NFTs will cost USD 10 each and may be purchased with a credit or debit card, according to reports. It is not necessary to keep cryptocurrency in your wallet.
Individual NFT performers from Ukraine
Ukraine is home to a huge number of individual NFT artists, in addition to the major NFT projects mentioned above. The NFT platform Orica has shared information about some of these independent artists, while Nik Kalyani, an NFT collector and creator of the Web 3 development company Decentology, has shared a community-curated list of artists.
