The legends of the boxing world, the Klitschko brothers continue to fight to defend their country against the Russian invasion and to help the Ukrainian people. As it is known, Vitali, one of the two heavyweight champion brothers, is now the mayor of Kyiv and one of the key figures in the defense of the city. Another brother, Wladimir Klitschko, announced that he would not stay away from helping the Ukrainian people like his brother.
Wladimir Klitschko publishes NFT collection to support relief efforts to Ukraine. The Ukrainian boxer will donate all the proceeds from NFT sales to the Ukrainian Red Cross and UNICEF while the Russian occupation continues.
The collection titled "Vandalz for Ukraine: WhIsBe x Wladimir Klitschko" was made in partnership with the artist WhIsBe. NFTs in the collection can be printed with a tiered pricing model of $100, $1,000, and $10,000.
For people who suffer, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko said in a statement.
"A wonderful initiative, a support through art for people who are suffering. Art can be beautiful on many levels when used to serve humanity."
Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko and his brother Vitali, the current mayor of Kiev and also a former champion boxer, have become the faces of the country's military resistance as they chose to fight on the front lines despite their celebrity status.
The boxer's NFT collection is just one of many NFT-related projects that will be released in support of Ukraine in a few weeks. The NFT of the Ukrainian flag was sold on March 2 for $6.75 million, and the total amount of donations made to Ukraine via cryptocurrency during the war exceeded $50 million.
WhIsBe, creator of the Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko NFT, said in a statement that he was grateful for this opportunity.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the greater good. It is incredible to be able to use my art and this evolving technology to help other people in need and provide immediate assistance to any part of the world.”
