Ukraine Partners With FTX, Everstake to Launch New Crypto Donation WebsiteMarch 15, 2022
The Ukrainian government launched a new crypto donations website on Monday, streamlining its multimillion-dollar effort to turn bitcoin into bullets, bandages and other war materiel.
“Aid for Ukraine,” which has the backing of crypto exchange FTX, staking platform Everstake and Ukraine’s Kuna exchange, will route donated crypto to the National Bank of Ukraine, Everstake’s Head of Growth Vlad Likhuta told CoinDesk. Ukraine’s crypto-savvy Ministry of Digital Transformation is also involved.
The country's collective efforts have already raised some $48 million in bitcoin (BTC), DOT, ether (ETH), SOL, tether (USDT) and other cryptocurrencies, according to the website. Other estimates place the amount closer to $100 million, but totals vary with market swings and exactly which websites are included.
The website deepens an unprecedented tie-up between public and private sector forces in crypto. FTX is converting donations into fiat for deposit at the National Bank of Ukraine, a press release said. It described this relationship as a “first.”
Everstake’s involvement allows more cryptocurrencies to be accepted by the website.
The central bank is using donations to support “humanitarian aid programs” as well as Ukraine's armed forces, according to the website. “The people will continue their fight for freedom, but they need more ammunition and necessities,” the website read.
“Crypto assets proved extremely helpful in facilitation of funding flows to Ukrainian citizens and soldiers, as well as in raising awareness and engaging people worldwide,” Oleksandr Bornyakov, an official at the digital ministry, said in a statement.
He hinted that an upcoming NFT collection “will give the next boost to the crypto fundraising process.”

This can totally devastate the whole crypto currency ecosystem. How can there be any trust anymore. BITCOIN anchored itself at 16800 but I imagine it will be heading down to 12000 before long.@Anmdt @Cabatli_TR @TR_123456 @Mis_TR_Like @Test7 @Yasar @Zafer @Combat-Master @TheInsider @Stimpy75 @Stuka @OPTIMUS
