(FINANCIAL TIMES) - The Ukrainian government announced on social media last month that it would accept global donations made in Bitcoin, Ethereum and Tether, to support its army.
It might have seemed like a publicity stunt. Not so. About US$106 million (S$144 million) of crypto donations have flooded in, if you tally up all the initiatives on different platforms, according to Ms Brittany Kaiser, a crypto entrepreneur (and former whistle-blower at Cambridge Analytica). She is part of a tech network helping Ukraine's Digital Transformation Minister Mykhailo Fedorov to organise this.
