Ukraine is a small country as compared to Russia, and to protect their country from the Russian invasion, Ukraine appealed for crowdfunding.
After Ukraine’s appeal, Crypto assets are playing a pivotal role in raising funds for Ukraine to provide resistance against the Russian invasion. According to reports, the global crypto community has raised its hands to support Ukraine amid the crisis.
Here we are going to provide a list of crypto assets accepted by Ukraine for crowdfunding for support in the war with Russia.
