In an effort to bring support to the Ukrainian people, digital rights management platform NFT RAIRtech presents its generative NFT collection inspired by Glitch art, the #UkraineGlitch, CoinJournal has learned in a press release.
The war-scarred Ukrainian flag
The project features a blurred image of the Ukrainian flag with yellow and blue pixelated “bullet holes” sprinkled in the background to represent the flag under Russian attack. Selling the collection would bring nearly $1.3 million to Ukrainian citizens in need of medical supplies.
Funds split between UACC and Web3 Development Fund
All funds from the Generative Drop will be split between the Ukrainian American Coordinating Council (UACC) and the Web3 Developer Fund, to benefit Ukrainian web3 developers in Ukraine.
The limited edition 1991 NFT collection represents the year Ukrainians overwhelmingly voted for the Ukrainian independence referendum. The collection is hosted on the Ethereum mainnet with each coin priced at 0.1991 ETH (~$600).
Masha Mitkov, Fullstack Project Manager at RAIRtech said:
Generating these pieces was quite cathartic – and made me cry on the floor at times. What looked like impersonal images based on squares and randomness became a map for energetic transposition from negative to positive. Tweaking the algorithms ultimately led to the perfect balance between chaos and distressed symbolism.
My family immigrated from Ukraine to the United States in the early 90s with refugee status. When war broke out in Crimea in 2014, my father started a direct supply chain of high-quality medical supplies directly to the Ukrainian militia. Since his death in November 2020 and the start of a new war in 2022, people have been looking for ways to gain access to these products again.
Today, the Ukrainian Coordinating Council and others have taken over what my father started. I realized that I was in a unique position to connect people who needed help and people who wanted to help.
Full flag animation
With each UkraineGlitch purchased, the number of pixels swapped from yellow to blue increases, eventually inverting the flag. Some pieces are animated to show parts of this progression, while others are not. Only UkraineGlitch NFT owners can watch the full flag transformation animation on the launch page.
Ed Prado, CEO of RAIRtech said:
RAIRtech has long enjoyed working with skilled Ukrainian web3 developers. We worked with several different companies and developers to create our front-ends and back-ends. Since the start of the war, we have found that the best way to help our Ukrainian friends is to send cryptos. We now want to expand and open up this support effort – this is where UkraineGlitch comes in.
