Here are crypto funded and Web3 initiatives to support Ukraine and legitimate organisations that accept crypto as donations. The initiatives on this page support various chains and cryptocurrencies. Crypto assets proved extremely helpful in facilitation of funding flows to Ukraine hence this will be a useful resource for many. For more information on DAOs and NFTs search Twitter using correct keywords, but do your own due diligence on projects and NFT artists.

Under Military and Humanitarian Help you can find organisations on the ground that accept cryptocurrencies to support Ukraine.

Additionally, a crypto investigative tool Crystal, that provides a comprehensive view of the public blockchain ecosystem, put together a list of verified Ukraine donation programs. Some of the organisations found on the list are found in our Military and Humanitarian Help section above, too.

Humanitarian Help

At the moment, the most effective organisations to deliver humanitarian aid are non-governmental Ukrainian organisations.

Large international organisations are well-known, but spend significant portion of money on salaries and offices, and take a lot of time to coordinate and form their response.

Whereas Ukrainian volunteers have no offices, self-organise, and spend their last money to save people in most affected areas of Ukraine.

  • Unchain Ukraine

NFTs

Non-fungible token - is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, a form of digital ledger, that can be sold and traded. It usually represents an asset and commonly in the past 2 years has been used for digital images, gifs, and art. Each has a digital signature that makes it impossible for NFTs to be exchanged for or equal to one another (hence, non-fungible).

There have been a number of NFT projects started to support Ukraine, its people and various artists, too.

Projects

  • MetaHistory: Museum of War
  • Ukraine's NFT museum established to preserve the memory of the real events of that time, to spread truthful information among the digital community in the world and to collect donations for the support of Ukraine. This project was launched by Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation

  • RELI3F
  • A Web 3 initiative started by Web 3 artists to support the people of Ukraine in this difficult time. In their primary drop they collected $1M in 30 seconds. 100% of the primary sale will go towards relief efforts in Ukraine. All royalties from secondary sales will either go towards those same efforts, or towards supporting Ukrainian artists, charity, and/or art initiatives of the participating artist’s choice. The team is partly made up of Ukrainians.
