The Ukrainians are apparently not alone in their fight against the Russians as the public continues to offer relentless support. The government of Ukraine has decided to cancel token airdrops in this regard and now intends to increase NFT support for the armed forces in the country.
Just a day after the Ukrainian government revealed plans for a crypto airdrop to its Ethereum donors via its official Twitter account, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov has pledged to announce on Twitter that the idea was scrapped.
As a replacement for the cryptocurrency airdrop originally planned for today, Mykhailo Fedorov has announced plans to sell NFTs to support the country’s armed forces.
Fedorov’s statements indicate that the crypto airdrop may not have been necessary as more and more donors are willing to support the attacked country with each passing day.
Fedorov’s tweet reads:
“After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the airdrop. Every day there are more and more people willing to help Ukraine resist aggression. Instead, we will soon be announcing NFTs in support of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. We have NO plans to issue fungible tokens.”
Unlike the original airdrop announcement, which was condemned by most comments on the tweet, the newly proposed development to sell NFTs for the benefit of the armed forces seems to appeal to a large number of people, as most comments on the tweet express agreements. Many people suggested that making them through the comments section was a wiser decision.
However, it also seemed that the belief in making donations without expectations isn’t for everyone, as other commenters expressed displeasure at the announcement. A number of commenters complained that it wasn’t nice of the Ukrainian government to encourage people to donate and then cancel the incentive after they donated.
Still, recent reports suggest that the people of Ukraine are not alone in their defense against the Russian onslaught, as institutions and individuals continue to donate their crypto assets to support the nation. Companies are also shutting down their services against Russians to prevent their attack on Ukraine. With that in mind, according to a recent announcement, PayPal has started restricting new users from Russia.
