Recent Eurovision Song Contest winners Kalush Orchestra are releasing an NFT for charity. All the money will somehow go to their home country Ukraine. This is happening as they remain in an ongoing conflict. Metahistory is hosting the auction.
NFT by Kalush Orchestra
The auction of Kalush Orchestra’s NFT started on May 25th and will last until tomorrow, May 28th. The auction, held on the Meta History platform, has a minimum bid of 10 ETH, and there is over a day left.
Interestingly, the platform allows users to buy the NFT in either fiat or cryptocurrency. This gives them choice and creates friendly competition for which type of currency can bring in the most donations.
With the eventual purchase of the NFT, the winner of the auction receives many advantages. A 100% unique digital NFT file with microphone and Kalush Orchestra. Also, an exclusive meeting and dinner with members of the Kalush Orchestra. As well as the possibility of obtaining the physical object, the crystal microphone. Only if the bid is higher than the fiat currency bid.
More specifically, the raffle is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy, the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), which are organizing the competition.
Eurovision Song Contest 2022
Last week in Turin, Italy, 40 countries took part in the famous competition. Russia was excluded from the event this year. The Kalush Orchestra of Ukraine won the competition with their song “Stefania”. Up until the public vote, it looked like Brit Sam Ryder would emerge victorious with “Space Man.” However, voters back home clearly supported the song, as well as the country’s recent struggles, and voted for Ukraine.
Since the beginning of their struggles, Ukraine, both the people and the government, have welcomed the help of crypto-based donations and NFTs to raise support and funds to support the country during the ongoing conflict.
