Justin Sun, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Grenada to the WTO, Leads Crypto Community’s Humanitarian Efforts by Leveraging Blockchain Technology

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 1 March 2022 – With the Russia-Ukraine war escalating into a global crisis, blockchain and cryptocurrency communities were among the first to announce support and lead humanitarian efforts with full decentralization, openness, and transparency, providing as much help as they can for those suffering from the war.

On February 26, Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov announced the acceptance of cryptocurrency donations and revealed USDT donation addresses of Ethereum, Bitcoin, and TRC20-USDT. Shortly after, founder of TRON Justin Sun (now appointed Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Grenada to the WTO) called on the crypto community to join in the humanitarian aid initiative, following which he made a donation of $200,000 in TRC20-USDT.

With endorsement from more crypto veterans, support from the TRON and Ethereum communities as well as leading organizations like Binance, the humanitarian aid initiative in the crypto space has gained wider attention and is gathering momentum rapidly. As the cruelty of wars and people’s vulnerability were brought to every corner of the world through social media and news platforms, more people have started to resonate with those suffering from the Russia-Ukraine crisis and have joined the rest of the world to offer care and support.

It’s not that blockchain makes the world a better place, but that due to its unique edge and the cross-border communication enabled by DAO, blockchain happens to become the central ground that pools the sympathy that people naturally have for the sufferers, rejection of wars, and the unwavering pursuit of peace and love.
