Crystal Microphone of the Eurovision Winner Sold 

Ukrainian hip-hop group "Kalush Orchestra" sold the cup of the winner of the "Eurovision Song Contest-2022" for $900.000

On May 29, the auction organized by the winner of the Eurovision-2022 ended. The auction was held for several days: from 25 till 29 May. Kalush Orchestra put up 2 lots for sale. Among them was a crystal trophy in the form of a microphone — the main award of the song contest. 

On May 29, the Ukrainian news portal Ukrinform reported about the sale of the lot, referring to the official page of the band on Facebook.

"Friends, you are incredible! We are grateful to each of you, who has given up money for this auction and especially to the team Whitebit, who bought the cup for $900 thousand and from now on becoming the right holders of our cup. Subscribe to them, they deserve it. Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the armed forces of Ukraine," the report quotes the publication.

Note that Whitebit is a Ukrainian currency crypto exchange, which 2 years ago became one of the largest European centers of concentration of digital currency. The organization has about 2 million users.

This result of the auction speaks of the great support of each other and the assistance of the Ukrainian army inside the country. The Ukrainian people are ready to help in all possible ways to defeat the invaders. The money received is used by the group to buy drones for the Ukrainian army.
