The META HISTORY project team created the first NFT War Museum in Ukraine one month after the massive Russian invasion. They have since raised $1,290,398 ($803,28.28.28) ETH) for the crypto fund Aid For Ukraine, which was set up by the Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation together with Ukrainian crypto platform KUNA, Everstake blockchain company, and charitable foundation Serhiy Prytula.
The idea of immortalizing the history of events in works of art and presenting them to those who want to support Ukraine has proven viable from day one. The March drop brought in more than $600,000 in 24 hours, 1,282 of 2,178 NFTs sold. I believe META HISTORY can make a huge contribution to support Ukraine by bringing out the truth through NFT art and selling it until the war is over,” Brittany Kaiser, META HISTORY Ambassador, Founder of #OwnYourData, Blockchain Activist.
On July 21, META HISTORY released their third collection of NFT Warline (https://metahistory.gallery/warline), which consists of a work of art that tells the course of the war. Each of the significant events has been illustrated by one of hundreds of artists working in different areas of visual art: oil, 3D, motion, generative graphics, calligraphy, and abstraction. One of the exhibits was created by artificial intelligence.
Ukraine’s first NFT ⎯ META HISTORY has collected more than $1,000,000 for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The project team sent all proceeds to Aid For Ukraine, a crypto fund intended for the military. “NFT will not stop Russian missiles, but it does provide a way for Ukraine to develop as an innovation-friendly country and rebuild its economy,” said Oleksandr Bornyakov, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation for IT Development in Ukraine.
The team responsible for the project will share more about the third drop from the collection at the online event in the metaverse on July 28. Party Space, the project partner, will provide a virtual exhibition space where visitors will see 30 works of the new drop, learn more about their making process and additional plans from the art directors and artists involved in the project. An announcement of the event and information on how to attend will soon appear on the museum’s META HISTORY social media pages.
“We have seen great potential to raise money for Ukraine through NFT art. We are now working on expanding its capabilities by adding more options to allow more people to purchase artwork. Along with the next drop, free mint will be in place, hopefully. There will also be events metaverse regular where you will learn more about the project and behind the scenes,” VK, founder of META HISTORY Museum.
