Sam Bankman, emphasizing the importance of helping the country, stated that the FTX team is honored to assist the Ukrainian Ministry of Finance in streamlining the donation process.
In such a case, Everstake, a decentralized staking provider, expressed gratitude to FTX. It further stated that FTX is the only platform that has offered assistance.
What role will FTX play in Ukraine?
FTX will contribute to the ‘Aid for Ukraine’ project, which will be the first of its type. The initiative will focus on 1) receiving crypto donations and 2) directly off-ramping them in fiat currency into the Ukrainian central bank by forming a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).
Earlier, FTX’s CEO emphasized the rise of the cryptocurrency ecosystem in Ukraine, as well as how fiat currencies have become more affordable as a result of Russia’s invasion.
The confrontation between the two countries, on the other hand, has shaken the world’s humanity and economy. A group of nations has announced sanctions in order to put pressure on Russia’s government. Meanwhile, this has resulted in widespread use and reliance on cryptocurrency.
