How to donate crypto to Ukraine

See a vetted list of organizations accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum and other coins.

Donations have poured into Ukraine from around the world as of early March 2022, including more than $50 million in the form of cryptocurrency. If you would like to help, here’s a vetted list to support the Ukrainian government, NGOs and independent news sources. Keep in mind that cryptocurrency transactions are not reversible, so any crypto sent to an incorrect address or wallet can’t be recovered.

DISCLAIMER: Given the nature of cryptocurrency, scammers more commonly ask for contributions in Bitcoin or altcoins. Do your due diligence and verify all sources before sending cryptocurrency to anyone claiming to accept funds on behalf of a Ukrainian organization.

Send cryptocurrency donations directly to Ukraine’s government

On February 26, the official Twitter account for the Ukrainian government announced it was accepting donations in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Tether (USDT). The Ukrainian Digital Ministry said the donations will help fund Ukraine’s armed forces.
