Ukraine DAO: Pussy Riot, Trippy Labs and PleasrDao use Ethereum NFTs to raise funds

According to reports, Pussy Riot, Trippy Labs, members of PleasrDAO have joined the Ukraine DAO initiative, a new decentralized autonomous organization created to help those hurt by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. 

“Welcome to @Ukraine_DAO. Our goal is to raise funds to donate to Ukrainian civilian organizations who help those suffering from the war that Putin started in Ukraine.  We’ll be buying an NFT of Ukrainian flag. Much support and love to Ukraine 🇺🇦💔 @TrippyLabs @PleasrDAO”.

This is a fundraiser via Ethereum-based Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) depicting flags of Ukraine. 

Nadya Tolokonnikova, political activist and Putin critic and founder of Pussy Riot specified the choice of the Ukrainian flag “because it’s not about any specific artists or aesthetics—it’s about something much bigger than all of us, it’s a pure gesture of solidarity”.

The launch will consist of 10,000 Ukrainian flag NFTs minted on Ethereum, with all proceeds benefiting the Return Alive Foundation and the NGO Proliska. In addition, a unique NFT – also of the flag – will be issued to allow larger contributors to participate.

On the subject of pro-Ukraine donations, Tolokonnikova also said:

“Activism is the only reason I joined Web3,. Now, when I’m so deeply ashamed of my government, I simply have to try to help Ukrainians”.

Russia and the attack on Ukraine with the collapse of the financial markets

On the night of 23-24 February 2022, Russia bombed Ukraine’s capital Kiev and other cities. What can be called “the beginning of a war” has already shown its effects in the financial markets

Already on Thursday, 24 February, the Asian financial markets that were already open, recorded sharp falls, and the same happened to the European markets at the opening

The crypto world was also affected by Putin’s attack. The price of Bitcoin fell to just above $34,000, returning to the situation at the end of January. Within 24 hours, the price of BTC had risen over 10% to $38,500.
