The winners of Eurovision 2022, the ground-shattering Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra has been popularizing Ukrainian music and culture for years. Having won the Eurovision, they have managed to deliver the message about the tragic events in Ukraine to millions of people around the world and haven't stopped there. Now, the guys have decided to aid their motherland financially by auctioning off their well-deserved prize, namely Eurovision Glass Mic Trophy, alongside its NFT digital copy. In addition to the valuable prize, the Kalush Orchestra's frontman Oleh Psiuk is auctioning his iconic pink bucket hat for €5 only! All funds raised from the sales will be donated to the needs of the Armed forces of Ukraine.
For this fundraising initiative named Stefania for Ukraine, Kalush Orchestra has partnered with the prominent Ukrainian showman, TV host, standupper, and army volunteer Serhiy Prytula, and his CO Charitable Foundation of Serhiy Prytula.
To enter the pink hat raffle, one has to make a €5(or 200UAH) donation in fiat via a bank card here. The more you donate, the more chances of winning you get. After the raffle stops, one lucky winner will be chosen by a randomizer.
To enter the Eurovision Trophy auction on the MetaHistory website, one needs to have at least 10 ETH in their crypto wallet, as it's the minimum bid. By purchasing the Crystal Microphone NFT by crypto, the owner gets the following:
- A 1:1 100% authentic NFT, featuring the mic and Kalush Orchestra
- An in-person meet and dinner with all the members of Kalush Orchestra.
- A unique opportunity to get the original trophy, if your bid turns out to be higher than the one in fiat.
Both the hat raffle and the trophy auction are running until May 28th!
The fundraising initiative is officially supported by the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy, the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the association of broadcasters that organizes the international Eurovision Song Contest.
It’s noteworthy that the first attempt to mint the NFT trophy belongs to a Ukrainian user!
Kalush Orchestra's award-winning song Stefania has brought the third Eurovision victory to Ukraine and is the first track entirely in Ukrainian performed at the contest.
Hurry up to join the raffle and the auction to get the memorable prize, alongside helping brave Ukrainian warriors fight for freedom and peace for Ukraine!
