As tragic events in Ukraine unfold, digital creators are doing their best to support the country with its efforts to save cultural heritage.
As per thepage.ua, a new initiative called "We Believe" is made by a local communication agency Postmen, and is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy, and other regulatory bodies. Artists have a collection of NFTs, featuring Easter eggs with authentic ornaments, which in Ukraine are called "pysanka." The project promises it will use the proceeds to "support and recover gems of Ukrainian culture."
As of press time, the highest bid (1 ETH = $2 975) on OpenSea is set for a token called Mariupol, which is named after a southern Ukrainian town that has become the most heavily bombed and damaged city in Ukraine's war with Russia. The project's developers say:
Every region of Ukraine is fighting for life and freedom now. Ukrainian cities are resisting russian occupiers, mobilizing all forces to win, sheltering people forced to leave their homes. Every city needs all the power of pysanka symbols.
Postmen notes that the rarity of NFTs depends on the level of destruction of the city.
To The Moon earlier reported that members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT collection have come together to join those who supported Ukraine amid the ongoing geopolitical disaster. A community spokesperson wrote in a tweet that the holders of cartoon apes donated over $1 million in ether (ETH) to Ukraine's official ETH address.
