According to Alex Bornyakov, Ukraine's Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation, the country would open an NFT museum "to safeguard the statehood and history of Ukraine."
On Twitter, Bornyakov unveiled ideas for the website, dubbed "Meta History: Museum of War." The site also has a "warline," which is a chronology of events with a matching NFT for each one.
Each of the NFTs includes a tweet about a pivotal occasion in the battle, as well as an illustration by various Ukrainian artists. One NFT, for example, includes a tweet from NATO on Day 3 of the war, at 4:40 p.m. Ukrainian time, calling on Russia to stop the attack.
A compass with a bullhorn is depicted in the accompanying graphic, which was created by artist Alina Kropachova.
Only the first three days of the fight have been recorded so far. The NFTs will be on sale on March 30th, with prices starting at 0.15 ETH, which is presently worth roughly $475. The Ministry of Digital Transformation receives all proceeds from the selling of the NFTs.
The effort, according to the Meta History Twitter account, is aimed at combating Russian propagation of fake news and propaganda by utilizing the blockchain as a permanent log. A tweet says,
“Disinformation is used by russia on a par with deadly military weapons in Ukraine. The NFT-museum is based on a deep intention to keep the memory of real wartime events via blockchain and raise charitable donations to support Ukraine.”
With blockchain technology, anything may be immortalized. In the instance of Meta History, the Ministry is using verified markers of events in the form of tweets from international governmental entities and officials.
The initiative is based on a number of successful NFT-based fundraising campaigns. Over $5 million was gathered by the UkraineDAO NFT initiative, which was led by Pussy Riot member Nadya Tolokonnikova. It was just one of a number of community-wide initiatives.
Scammers, on the other hand, abound in this area. The History of Metahistory On OpenSea, a Twitter impostor has already been reported.
