Ukraine Launches War NFT Museum on Ethereum and Polygon
Ukraine's Ministry of Digital Transformation has launched an online non-fungible token museum to preserve the timeline of major events beginning with the Russian military's invasion of the country.
As the country remains under Russian attack, Ukraine's Ministry of Digital Transformation announced today the launch of the Meta History Museum of War, which will showcase solely NFTs.
As you might expect, the "museum" is a website rather than a physical structure. Its collection, which was created with the ministry's help, chronicles recent events in the Russian-Ukraine conflict, including personal perspectives from Ukrainian and international digital artists.
Everything on the site may be bought, and each image is linked to a non-fungible token created by the Fair NFT platform, which runs on the Ethereum blockchain and the Polygon network. All photographs, on the other hand, are hidden until they're sold, so you won't know what you're getting until you've paid for it. "You uncover the truth by purchasing MetaHistory," the museum says.
Each NFT in the "Warline" collection will cost 0.15 ETH (about $468), with the assets being auctioned in the sequence represented on the timeline. Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine's Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation, describes the new platform as a "place to keep the memory of war" and a "celebration of Ukrainian identity and freedom."
The proceeds from the NFT sale will be sent straight to the Ministry of Digital Transformation's official cryptocurrency accounts, which will be used to fund the army and civilian aid.
Over $100 million in cryptocurrency donations has poured into the region since the Russian invasion began. The majority has gone directly to the Ukrainian government, according to data from analytics company Merkle Science.
