Shiba Inu Wants To Donate Tokens For Supporting Ukraine
The official member of the Shiba Inu portal with the nickname MILKSHAKE published a message saying that their community is ready to help Ukraine in this difficult time for the country. Milkshake tweeted the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, offering to accept cryptocurrency donations from SHIB.
Translation of the tweet from Ukrainian:
“@FedorovMykhailo The current events in Ukraine have touched the hearts of many members of the $SHIB community. Sincerely, I am reaching out to you directly because many people want to help and donate when you start accepting crypto donations”.
Other Twitter users also expressed their support to Ukraine:
Gossip Shib said she doesn’t want to be neutral - she fully supports Ukraine:
Shib Knight confirmed that the Shibarmy stands with Ukraine:
Earlier, the Vice President of Ukraine posted the address of the Dogecoin wallet, informing that donations for the Ukrainian army and civilians can be transferred there. Now the government of the country accepts assistance in the form of cryptocurrency. Donations can be made using Bitcoin (BTC), Tether (USDT), Ethereum (ETH), and Polkadot (DOT).
Even though the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine hasn’t responded to Shiba Inu's proposal yet, the token (SHIB) may become the next type for donations. This token has already participated in helping the Indian company - when the co-founder of Ethereum platform Vitalik Buterin made donations to Crypto Covid Relief Fund.
In 2021, Shiba Inu developers gave 50% of the cryptocurrency to Vitalik Buterin as a marketing ploy. However, he retired 90% of these holdings sending them to an inactive account, thereby removing them from circulation. The remaining 50 trillion SHIB tokens (estimated at $1.2 billion) went to India's COVID-19 relief fund created by Polygon founder Sandeep Nailwal.
