Earlier today, the Ukranian Embassy’s Twitter account announced that they were raising donations using cryptocurrency, a highly anticipated move that was cheered on by many.
Earlier in the day, Vitalik, founder of Ethereum tweeted that this may have been a scam, but later corrected saying that he confirmed with the Ukrainian embassy that this was in fact a legitimate fundraiser.
Tomical Tilleman responded to Vitalik confirming the legitimacy of the fundraiser, so as of now this seems to be legitimate and much needed.
If you want to help Ukraine by donating, you can fund them directly through their wallet or check out this list of reputable relief agencies in this post.
We would highly suggest donating directly to Ukraine’s BTC address as relief agencies usually take a large cut of proceeds and take forever to distribute relief.
