Ukraine Launches it's NFT Line: Meta History Museum of War

By Cje95 | Chronic Illness and Crypto | 29 Mar 2022


Earlier this March Ukraine's Ministry of Digital Transformation announced it was going to develop and release an NFT project to help raise funds for the country. Since the launch of the first crypto wallets to accept donations the country has raised over $100 million which has been spent on non-lethal aid to help both the people defending the country and those still stuck there. The collection is called Meta History: Museum of War and so far covers the first three days of the war (we are now in day 33).

 

Officially launching at 12 AM EST on March 31st the first 54 NFTs from the first three days go on sale. These NFTs are reasonably priced as well with each costing 0.15 ETH. The Museum of War is designed to be, "a chronology of events of the Ukrainian history of modern times, set in stone. The NFTs are facts accompanied by personal reflections. The formula of each NFT is clear and simple: each token is a real news piece from an official source and an illustration from artists, both Ukrainian and international." 

 

Something I thought of after reading about this was that since Russian citizens were using the blockchain to protect their buying power adding these images to it will help erode the wall that Russia has put up to hide the truth in Ukraine. For the people purchasing these NFTs it is vital to note that Ukraine is minting these NFTs using the Fair platform and this allows you to utilize either the Ethereum or the Polygon blockchain cutting down on the cost of moving an image from one wallet to another! 

 

All of the money from the purchases are going to the Ukrainian wallet so no one is taking a cut. With 54 imagines coming out in less than two days the launch should earn the Ukrainian government 8.1 ETH. While it is not an absolute killing what it will do is serve as a proof of concept. If the launch works and is successful I imagine seeing more releases as the days go by and this could earn the government a nice return while also making sure that we never forget what has occurred. 

 

While I hope to see the war end soon it does not appear Russia really is thinking about ending it. The continued attacks on civilians and targets across the country lead to the appearance that this is going to be a slow grinding war. A huge positive thing that did emerge this weekend was that Ukraine was able to launch several very successful counterattacks to push Russia back around Kyiv and push towards the one "major" city Russia has captured Kherson. Hopefully, as more and more arms continue to arrive in the country and make their way East to the front lines they can be used to further push back the Russian invaders. 

 

It will be very interesting to see how Russia will respond to these images being on the blockchain where their citizens can see them. Russia cannot remove them nor really cut off access since it is a huge lifeline to its population. Hopefully, these people see the true horrors that their leader has unleashed upon the innocents and the collection becomes a huge huge hit for Ukraine and the information war.
