Buterin did not disclose his contribution, despite the considerably large sum donated which was only linked back to him because on-chain data revealed his wallet address and ENS domain name “vitalik.eth.”

Russia-born Buterin has been a vocal critic of the invasion of Ukraine. In February, he publicly opposed Vladimir Putin’s decision to attack Ukraine and called it a “crime against Ukrainian and Russian people.”

“I couldn’t be more grateful for every crypto donation to our lifesaving initiative, Aid for Ukraine. It really helps to strengthen our country and protect its democratic values. Special thanks to Vitalik Buterin for standing with Ukraine,” stated Alex Bornyakov, deputy minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.null

Data shows that Ukraine has received more than $100 million worth of donations in Bitcoin BTC/USD, Ethereum, Dogecoin DOGE/USDPolkadot DOT/USD, and Solana SOL/USD.

Price Action: According to data from Benzinga Pro, ETH was trading at $43,611, up 0.63% in the last 24 hours.
