Binance NFT, the official non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace of major cryptocurrency exchange Binance, has announced the official launch of the NFT collection of FC Shakhtar Donetsk, a professional football club from Ukraine and arguably one of the largest in the country. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Binance Charity Foundation and the Shakhtar Social Fund, which will provide humanitarian assistance to people in Ukraine affected by the war.
According to the press release, nine signed jerseys from the club’s “Football for Peace” initiative will be auctioned as part of the launch. In addition, as part of this initiative, FC Shakhtar Donetsk organize friendly matches and donate proceeds from ticket sales to Ukrainian children affected by the war.
“As one of the most popular professional football clubs in Ukraine, FC Shakhtar Donetsk has received a lot of love, affection and support from our local fans over the years. We are committed to helping the Ukrainian community emerge stronger from this crisis. Blockchain is ideally suited for this because of the transparency and accountability it provides,” commented Sergei Palkin, the CEO of FC Shakhtar Donetsk.
The auction starts on May 7th and lasts for a week. The highest bidder will receive a limited edition FC Shakhtar Donetsk jersey with the Football for Peace logo.
Taras Stepanenko, Mikhail Mudryk and Andriy Pyatov, the stars of Ukrainian football, will also sign the shirt. In addition to the items being auctioned, 10,000 NFT Mystery Boxes will be available for purchase.

To support FC Shakhtar Donetsk’s launch of NFT collection, Binance has upgraded to multi-chain support, allowing users to transfer NFTs to and from Ethereum networks and the BNB chain.
