Ukraine has announced the cancellation of WORLD token airdrop.
The announcement was made in a tweet by Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov who said the country plans to raise more money through the sale of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) instead.
“After careful consideration, we decided to cancel airdrop. Every day there are more and more people willing to help Ukraine to fight back the aggression. Instead, we will announce NFTs to support Ukrainian Armed Forces soon. We DO NOT HAVE any plans to issue any fungible tokens.”
However, analysts are attributing the reason for the cancellation of the airdrop to a fake account that created 7 billion “Peace World Tokens,” making it seem like it was the official airdrop token for crypto donors.
Etherscan immediately flagged this fake airdrop after it began almost an hour before the officially announced time.
The Vice Prime Minister later announced that Ukraine plans to use NFTs instead, and has given up plans of offering any fungible tokens.
Ukraine through its official Twitter account shared Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) wallet addresses last Saturday, along with a call for help from the crypto community all over the world.
The country later went on to add Polkadot and Dogecoin wallet addresses following requests from crypto donors.
