TechForPeace is the global peace initiative to use technology for a faster path to peace in the current Ukraine-Russia war. The initiative is being set up as Switzerland-based DAO (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation) which is used as a foundation for donations and contributor engagement.
The initiative is led by an activist group of technology entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, political leaders, and other influencers as well as different groups of contributors. The project was initiated by Olga Feldmeier, a Ukrainian entrepreneur leading a Swiss cryptocurrency exchange and a group of friends fighting for peace in Ukraine.
NFT for Peace is a donations project which brings together influencers such as artists, musicians, athletes, and entrepreneurs to share their engagement and activate their communities in support of Ukraine. The NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token and is used to record the ownership of digital artwork created in this project.
A major part of donations will be directly transferred through cryptocurrency channels to support the Ukrainian population on the ground. This will be done through both the direct transfer of cryptocurrency funds to organisations in Ukraine . A part of the donations will go into supporting the independent Russian press and media, helping to build Russian opposition on the ground. These contributions will be directly sent to the receivers via cryptocurrency bypassing Russian banks.
For each well-known individual participating in the initiative a series of personal artworks are created in collaboration with digital artists. The artwork features the influencer's personality integrated with Ukrainian national symbols.
Participating artists donate their work. Participating influencers donate their personal imagery. For each artwork the NFT (non-fungible token) is generated, which acts as ownership certificate.
Only the person who holds the NFT in his wallet, is the rightful owner of the unique digital artwork connected with this token. The proceeds from sales of artworks act as donations. Tech For Peace Donation taskforce custody and distribute donations.
Individual artworks from the NFT for Peace Collection are sold through the network of participating NFT marketplaces. People who are buying NFTs, receive the digital artwork. The purchase price goes as a donation to the Tech For Peace initiative. The NFTs themselves represent a unique valuable series of digital art, which can hold its value outside of the initial sales transaction.

The main result of the initiative is the collection of donations for the support of Ukraine.
