Money from NFT sales will help restore cultural sites destroyed by russians
An international content platform Depositphotos, META HISTORY museum in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine will present a special NFT collections by the top Ukrainian digital artists. All money raised will go to the restoration of cultural sites.
META HISTORY was created a month after the start of the full-scale russian invasion and as of today has already raised more than $1.2 million for Sergiy Prytula Charity Foundation and for the crypto fund Aid For Ukraine, which was initiated by the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine along with the Ukrainian-baised crypto platform KUNA and blockchain-company Everstake. The museum raises money by selling the NFTs called Warline. It's a set of digital art pieces that chronologically highlights every major event in the russian-Ukrainian war.
At the end of May, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine became an official partner of the META HISTORY museum, starting the joint work on several special NFT collections. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of digital works will be directed to the restoration of Ukrainian sites of cultural heritage.
"During six months of the war in Ukraine, russians have destroyed hundreds of our museums, theaters and cultural centers. Ukrainian culture and national heritage have been damaged by almost 6 billion euros, and as to the actions and intentions of the russian federation, this amount will only be increasing. That is why today it is important to support modern initiatives and creative projects to restore Ukraine's unique cultural heritage, involving as much of interested people as possible in the process," said Oleksandr Tkachenko, Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine.
Connoisseurs of digital art and collectors will be able to purchase works from the special collection "Avatars for Ukraine" Vol.2, created by the top Ukrainian digital artists and video game developers.
Also, for the Independence Day of Ukraine, will be presented a special collection of NFTs, created by the international content platform Depositphotos together with Ukrainian artists. About 30 works will be presented in this collection, which are creative reinterpretations of cultural objects destroyed during the war.
