Russia's performing arts and activist group, Pussy Riot, announced on Twitter this week that they have teamed up with street artist Shepard Fairey to launch a philanthropic open edition NFT.

❗Why It Matters

The collection, titled "Putin's Ashes," serves as a charitable invitation to support Ukraine in its fight against Russia. Pussy Riot continues their push to utilize the blockchain in order to aid humanitarian efforts, captioning the movement as, "Proof of Protest."

The Deets

  • All proceeds of the open edition will be donated to the Ukrainian Special Forces.
  • The mint is live on the Tezos blockchain and will conclude on Feb. 3. 
  • Each NFT costs 10 TEZ

🖼️ The Big Picture
