The Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine has launched a website for people to donate and buy NFTs to raise funds for war efforts. The newly launched website lists donated NFTs for sale, including a CryptoPunk, mfer, and MoonCat

The CryptoPunk is open to offers while the mfer and MoonCat have an asking price of 5 ETH and 2 ETH respectively. The website also features an Ethereum address for receiving NFT donations, as well as NFT collections the government supports, including Russia For Sale, Ukrainian Spirit, and MetaHistory Museum of War.

“All funds as always will contribute to the Ukrainian victory. Ready, steady, NFT,” tweeted Mykhailo Fedorov, Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.

The MetaHistory Museum of War is Ukraine’s NFT museum—the government’s first NFT initiative. MetaHistory released the first part of its NFT collections on Mar 30. 

The artworks depict a chronology of events from day one to six of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The NFT museum collected $770,000 from the NFT sales, which were all donated to the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.

This week, MetaHistory announced its second NFT drop planned for May 1. Today, MetaHistory is unveiling its Hall of Fame, featuring a selection of public figures and media personalities that have helped Ukraine in the war. 

MetaHistory said: “These people provided goods and services, supported us behind closed doors, and used the power of their art to draw attention to the cause and collect donations.”

The team picked the inductees based on how vocal they were in supporting Ukraine and the real actions they have taken. The first inductee to the Hall of Fame is Elon Musk, who activated Starlink service in Ukraine, providing the country with satellite Internet access coverage, at the request of Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov.

Other inductees include Mila Kunis, Elton John, Jared Leto, Jim Carrey, and Benedict Cumberbatch. NFT portraits of the inductees will be presented in MetaHistory’s Hall of Fame.

MetaHistory said that the Hall of Fame artworks will not be put up for sale, and are an expression of gratitude that will be immortalised on the blockchain.

According to Aid for Ukraine, the country’s official crypto donation site, Ukraine has raised more than $60 million in crypto donations so far, with more than $45 million spent on bulletproof vests, helmets, medical supplies and more
