WhiteBIT simultaneously broke two Ukrainian records. Made the most expensive (500 Ethereum) NFT purchase and this is the largest donation amount during the live stream. The company has a goal to spread blockchain technology and expand the cryptocurrency community, and this may have inspired them to set a record and provide the largest donation to support their country with cryptocurrency.

“WhiteBIT is grateful to the global community for supporting our country during this difficult time. As Ukrainians, we want our Western partners to know that Ukrainian businesses and entrepreneurs are also investing all their resources to keep our brave soldiers fighting. The decision to make a donation at this auction, organized by the Kalush Orchestra, was completely conscious and thoughtful. Indeed, $900,000 even for a quartz microphone is a lot. But $900,000 to help the Armed Forces is only a small part of the total contribution of all Ukrainians to our common victory,” said Volodymyr Nosov, CEO of WhiteBIT.

At the same time, the ambitious collaboration between Kalush and MetaHistory does not end there. Co-founders of the Kalush Orchestra, a Ukrainian music label ENCO production of the NFT music album began with well-known Ukrainian and foreign performers invited. All funds raised will also go to support Ukraine.

“Enko always tries to be ahead of others, this defines a leader. Therefore, I am very glad that we became co-creators of such a historical event and a record in the form of a result. I am grateful to the crypto community and personally to Vladimir Nosov from Whitebit for such a strong gesture. I especially want to mention MetaHistory, because I express my gratitude to VK for his offer to hold this event together. I can only add that Enko, MetaHistory and the OhMyGod agency are planning something that will break all patterns and restrictions. Stay with us,” said Ekaterina Dmitrenko, CEO of Enko music label (Kalush Orchestra label).

Public agency team Oh my God helped with the marketing of this event and supported the charitable initiative.

With this latest move, the Ukrainians once again demonstrate the benefits of NFTs. IIn March, MetaHistory successfully launched its NFT art collection, raising $800,000 in donations for Ukraine. The unique MetaHistory platform demystifies NFTs and promotes them as timeless and important ways to connect with the world. The platform sets an example to the world that NFTs can be useful, and their ambition to become a national NFT platform is increasing.

“As a founder, I am happy with the historic event that has taken place on the MetaHistory platform, because no one has minted the Eurovision trophy so far. I am grateful to the crypto community and personally to Vladimir Nosov, CEO of Whitebit, for their participation and passion to win. The collected money will definitely become part of the joint efforts to help our Motherland in this terrible aggression. MetaHistory will continue to build on its work to show the world that NFTs can be more than just a speculative asset,” said VK, CEO metahistory.
