Ukraine Vice Prime calls for more crypto donation for Ukraine via rap video with Everstake

On May 23, Everstake, a blockchain firm based in Ukraine, created a rap video featuring Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov to encourage the crypto community to continue donating to the humanitarian group Aid For Ukraine. The company has 625,000 users and employs over 100 individuals globally.

Ukraine’s crypto rap song is catchy as hell. Invest in Peace, Bro. Invest in peace.

Aid For Ukraine collects contributions from the cryptocurrency community for Ukraine’s military and humanitarian needs. Since its inception, it has raised over $60 million in various cryptocurrencies, with over $45 million already spent on first aid kits, ration packs, protective jackets, and other purchases. Everstake, Kuna, FTX, and Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation are all partners in the effort.

Sergey Vasylchuk, CEO of Everstake, said, “Peace comes at a price, but the first wave of donations has subsided. Cryptocurrencies are free from red-tape hurdles, which makes them the most efficient way to provide fast help. Every crypto contribution, no matter big or small, is another nail in the coffin of totalitarianism. Helping Ukraine fight off the invasion means helping us save the free world from enslavement.”

Everstake and its co-founders Sergey Vasylchuk and Yev Zaifert have also given bitcoin donations totaling $10 million. Yev Zaifert contributed $9 million on his own. They also contributed to other efforts. This comprises the Kyiv School of Economics’ charitable foundation.

Bickerstaff.734, a Kyiv-based creative agency, created the rap video. Ilia Anufreinko, their creative director, stated, “People rarely think about peace as an investment. But if there is no peace, there will be no opportunity to pump your Lamborghini or get an alpaca farm. It’s a very unusual communication campaign, so we believe it will stand out and attract more crypto donations.”
