Live dashboard tracks real-time Ukrainian crypto donations as they soar to $40 million

March 3, 2022, 4:57 PM UTC

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has spurred a flood of donations, especially in the cryptocurrency sector, but keeping track of just how much has poured in to the country has been a challenge.

Up until now, Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s vice prime minister and minister of digital transformation, has been the point person for crypto donation campaign updates. But a new dashboard is keeping a more up-to-the-minute look at how the fundraising is going.

Dune Analytics has put the display together, which tracks the number of donors to date, total amount raised, and total contributions.

As of 11:30 a.m. ET on Thursday, nearly 74,000 people have made almost 92,000 donations, totaling $39.03 million.

That’s a lot, but as Fortune reported, some competing sources place the figure even higher. Blockchain analysis Elliptic is also live-tracking the donations and put the total of crypto donations at $54.7 million around the same time.

The dashboard also breaks down the biggest donors. To date, six accounts have donated more than $1 million in tokens, using both USD Coin (USDC) and Ethereum (ETH). And seven of the top 10 donors have government addresses, the site notes.

Dune Analytics is a Web3 analytics platform and blockchain data aggregator, which allows analysts to create dashboards analyzing any blockchain aspect they prefer. This dashboard gathers data from a variety of sources, including the address provided by Ukraine, multiple DAOs supporting the country, and other crypto-based relief efforts.
