Blockasset brings blockchain communities together in a bid to raise funds for the Usyk Foundation.

August is a big month for the Blockasset team & community as we plan to achieve a world-first by creating a cross-chain charity NFT release, in collaboration with World Heavyweight boxing Champion, Oleksandr Usyk.

The objective of the Usyk NFT drop is to raise funds for the Usyk Foundation for Ukraine. To achieve this we are looking to facilitate other blockchain networks in the campaign prior to Usyk’s World title defence against Anthony Joshua on August 20.

Designed by world-renowned artist Dosbrak, Usyk’s digital art collection articulates standout moments from his undefeated professional career, with glimpses of the Ukrainian’s infectious character and love for his home country. Each piece will contain randomly generated artwork, ensuring that each holder’s NFT is completely unique and one of a kind.

Speaking ahead of the upcoming bout, Usyk said, “I appreciate the opportunity to link up with Blockasset, who I regard as the Heavyweight Champions of sports NFTs. I’m a big fan of Dosbrak’s art, and it has been a pleasure to collaborate on this initiative, which I am sure will raise a considerable amount for our foundation.”

Blockasset CEO, Paul Evans said, “We’re delighted to be able to help Oleksandr raise funds for the Usyk Foundation through our latest drop. We’re very confident that by bringing blockchain communities together, we can make a substantial contribution”.

The Usyk Foundation is a charitable foundation created by World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Oleksandr Usyk. The charity was founded in May 2022 to help the people of Ukraine left homeless, out of work, and without the most essential things.

The Usyk Foundation exists to cover the basic needs of the people affected by the war and is a partner of the BGV Charity Fund.

A number of exclusive physical items, such as signed original Dosbrak prints and autographed Oleksandr Usyk gloves will be awarded to holders of the rarest NFTs from the mint.

Pre-sale for the Usyk Solana NFT collection will go live Wednesday 17th August 12:00 UTC.
