StandAgainstWar: Fresh NFT Project to Help Ukraine
The StandAgainstWar project has launched a website with a collection of NFT characters called "Peaceful Nightingales," money from the purchase of which will be collected in an anti-war fund that sponsors the fight against the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine due to the aggressive military invasion of the country by the occupation forces of the RF. The collection consists of 10,000 "Peace Nightingales," each of which, upon purchase, becomes a buyer's avatar, symbolizing the help of its owner and motivating other donators. It’s noteworthy that the NFT characters will be created directly during the purchase of the token. After creating of each "Nightingale," the smart contract automatically distributes 90% of its total value among the ETH wallets of 17 NCOs operating in Ukraine. The transaction IDs of each donation will be available on the blockchain so they can be verified at any time. At the same time, remaining 10% goes to digital marketing, project development and further audience retention. In addition to this, the system supports multiple donations that can occur within the same smart contract. According to StandAgainstWar, the project is partnering with 17 non-profit organizations that provide local recovery assistance along with direct cash transfers in Ukraine. They are working on the front lines, equipping medical workers, providing shelters for animals, supplying food, providing food for children, providing support to Ukrainians in rebuilding their lives.

They claimed that Edward Snowden, the US National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower, is John Dobbertin, the latest participant in the trusted privacy coin planting process. “When we started Zcash in 2016, a trusted setup process was the only scientific option for preventing counterfeiting, while still using strong encryption to ensure privacy.” — said Zooko Wilcox, CEO of the Electric Coin Company that created Zcash.
