Yesterday, Saturday, February 26, 2022 at 12 noon EST, UkraineDAO launched with the release of 1/1 NFT of the Ukrainian national flag, minted by CXIP, to raise funds for Ukrainian civic organizations aimed at help those damaged by the war started by Putin.
The release comes out with the creation of PartyBid (a tool that allows anyone to place collective bids and, in case they win, get proportional ownership of the flag), to allow those who want to donate any amount join and get POAP (proof of attendance, a digital souvenir).
UkraineDAO began to form soon after the news that Russian troops were invading Ukraine. Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, FreeRossDAO’s Alona, PleasrDAO’s CryptoStΞvΞ and Trippy from Trippy Labs started organizing and bringing together community members from the different DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) they joined.
UkraineDAO consists of Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, Alona of FreeRossDAO, CryptoStΞvΞ of PleasrDAO, Trippy from Trippy Labs and their respective community members; and with help from CXIP and Moonpay. This initiative is inspired by FreeRossDAO’s recent successful fundraising efforts.
“We intentionally avoided adding our own art to this release, which is in a way our strong conceptual art statement. People may have different tastes, but it’s not a matter of what color we like, but to unite to save lives. The Ukrainian flag unites us,”Nadya Tolokonnikova by Pussy Riot.
“On Thursday, CXIP received word that some of our development partners in Ukraine had been displaced from their homes and were racing to move their families to safety, while some in Some of them remained in Ukraine, trapped and unable to leave. Over the past year, these partners have become some of our closest friends – part of the CXIP family and our core team. When Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot and PleaserDAO asked CXIP to create a custom contract for the UkraineDAO NFT initiative, we immediately focused our efforts on supporting this important campaign,” Jeff Gluck, CEO of CXIP.
“Come Back Alive” was founded in 2014 by Vitaliy Deynega, an IT expert from Kyiv. Their principles: political neutrality, public reporting of income and expenses, and the distribution of aid to those in greatest need. Evaluation of the results of Ukrainian charity projects announced by the Association of Ukrainian Philanthropists in 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019 evaluated “Come Back Alive” as one of the volunteer and Ukraine’s most efficient and transparent charity.
