Elon Musk is the first inductee into the NFT MetaHistory Ukrainian Museum Hall of Fame, but he won’t be the last. Other notable inductees include Mila Kunis, Elton John, Jared Leto, Jim Carrey and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Hall – MetaHistory Hall of Fame
Since the outbreak of war in Ukraine, many businessmen, artists, and politicians have expressed their support for the country, but some stood out in particular. MetaHistory, the Ukrainian NFT museum, now wants to memorialize these people on blockchain. The MetaHistory team released Part 1 of its art collection on March 30 with great success, raising $800,000 from sales – 100% of which will go as a donation to the Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation, the official sponsor of the project.
This week they are launching the Hall of Fame, a special selection of portraits of NFT people who have helped Ukraine through difficult times. These people have provided goods and services, supported Ukraine behind closed doors, and used the power of their art to bring attention to the cause and raise donations.
These works of art are not for sale, they are an expression of gratitude – similar to the way paintings were given to royal families and famous scientists in the past. The difference is that NFT-based artwork will remain on the blockchain forever. Ukraine’s supporters are literally writing history with their deeds.
Who are these people? The MetaHistory team chose them based on how actively they supported Ukraine and what real actions they took. You all know their names – check out the Hall of Fame itself https://metahistory.gallery/hall . A little hint: similar actions can earn you a spot in the MetaHistory Hall of Fame:
This exchange was born when Ukraine’s Minister of Digital Technology, Mr. Fedorov, published one of the tweets that later made him famous in his home country. Tweets that spur action show determination and courage. It was this tweet that created a reliable Internet connection through Starlink.
Musk is the first, but not the last inductee into the Hall. Other inductees include Mila Kunis, Elton John, Jared Leto, Jim Carrey and Benedict Cumberbatch – their portraits are ready to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The community has joined the MetaHistory team in thanking:
“MetaHistory is a project magnificently assembled in an environment where most can’t think about anything more than survival and taking care of loved ones. How do you focus on quality when you hear the sounds of explosions outside your window? MetaHistory has launched an example of using blockchain while preserving Ukraine’s heritage and future. I am humbled and happy to be its ambassador,” commented Wesa, a crypto-artist.
“It was a huge privilege for me to represent DAO Ukraine at a panel discussion hosted by MetaHistory last week along with Alex Borniakov, Dima Buterin, and Brittany Kaiser. I’m thrilled with the Hall of Fame and very proud to see all this support for Ukraine from the world’s businessmen and artists,” commented Alona Shevchenko co-founder of the Ukraine FAO.
The Hall will be released along with the 2nd part of the museum’s collection, the so-called 2nd drop. Such famous artists as Vaone Manjos, Sestri Feldman, Danya Shulipa, Irene Neuman and others created real masterpieces to commemorate the events of the war from March 2 to 14. This part of the collection, unlike the Hall, is available for purchase-you can mint NFTs for 0.15 ETH.
