Ukraine announced the airdrop of tokens on March 2, after receiving USD 33 million in different cryptocurrencies from international contributors. Within hours of the airdrop announcement, more than USD 7 million in contributions had been raised.
The airdrop began on Thursday, just after news of Ukraine was seeding Uniswap liquidity pools with PEACE tokens. A Uniswap pool has already been set up. Trading and front-running user orders have also begun using automated bots.
Ukraine has been tight-lipped about the airdrop’s specifics, such as what tokens contributors would earn and in what quantities. As crypto users sought to game the airdrop, the mere mention of it generated a flood of microdonations on the Ethereum blockchain.
