Crypto Steve and Tolokonnikova, co-founders of Twitter Spaces, spoke out post-sale at NFT Now. They stated that their mission is to harness the power of crypto to help those in greatest need.
CryptoSteve, as he’s known on Twitter, stated that UkraineDAO was formed because of people who “just started raising money, being of service, and being selfless.” He also said that one of the best things about a DAO is its potential for setting a new fundraising paradigm.
You can reach out to your friends if you want to make it happen. It is amazing that the Web3 space has been able to mobilize more quickly than countries and with the same magnitude.
Tolokonnikova answered the question about how UkraineDAO reached the decision to share the proceeds from the sale. She said it was down to listening to everyone in the DAO. She said that they reached out to various local nonprofits and determined that Come Back Alive was the most trusted and effective choice. Come Back Alive supplies equipment for the army.
They decided, however, that the money would be used only for medical care and not for military equipment. Tolokonnikova said that before the money is sent, it is important to ensure that the wallet of the nonprofit is secure and properly set up.
Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister, announced Wednesday that the country will continue to raise money through the sale NFTs. The country has raised almost $40 million thus far. UkraineDAO still accepts direct crypto donations.
