The legendary boxer and two-time heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko will launch his first non-fungible token collection to support his country in the war effort. 


It’s been two weeks since the unjustified assault from Russia began. The geopolitical conflict is a full-blown war between Russia and Ukraine. Russia has many more resources and has been preparing its military for months, which has given them a considerable advantage.


To support the war effort, many nations have given financial assistance to Ukraine and have imposed sanctions on the Russian people and the Russian economy. The whole world, even crypto and NFTs have actively supported the Ukrainian war effort by raising funds for them. 

The collection that Wladimir Klitschko is launching is called “Vandalz for Ukraine: WhIsBe x Wladimir Klitschko”, made in partnership with WhIsBe. The collection is suited towards people with different financial opportunities by allowing for you to purchase a non-fungible token which can cost $100, $1, 000 or even $10, 000

According to Wladimir Klitschko, all the funds from the NFT collection will directly go towards UNICEF and the Ukraine Red Cross, which are humanitarian organizations working on the ground to provide essential resources to those affected by the war. They also work to provide housing and safety for those left homeless due to the destruction of the war or who wish to migrate to a neighboring country. 

“It is a magnificent initiative, support through art at the service of people who suffer. Art can be beautiful on many levels when used to serve humanity,” says Klitschko.

NFTs have become a compelling way to gather donations. Many people are selfless enough to donate, but non-fungible tokens are unique by giving additional incentives to people by allowing them to join massive public campaigns and to feel as though they are contributing to something larger than themselves by seeing the unique digital badge that proves their participation.

The NFT collection launched by the famous boxer is just one of many crypto and NFT schemes launched to support Ukraine. Earlier non-fungible tokens of the Ukrainian flag were sold for $6,75, and more than $50 million were raised in total from donations in crypto.
