When Things Get Crazy You Might Want a Little Crypto on Hand (Lessons From Ukraine) — VAULT Cryptocurrency Blockchain News #43

6 min readFeb 27, 2022


Week of February 19th-26th

Things have gone a little nuts this week. After weeks of rumors about a Russian invasion of Ukraine, we are seeing bombs flying and rumors of World War 3. We’re also seeing a major use case for crypto surface quickly as bank and credit card accounts are seized and stopped. If all your fiat accounts were seized or halted, how do you survive?

Remember, governments can seize or stop any fiat accounts they want at any time.

The people of Ukraine are finding that they can use cryptocurrency to buy essentials that they need to survive in times of crisis.

It is interesting to find out that Ukraine has the largest Bitcoin reserves of any country.

Over $4 million in Bitcoin has already been donated to Ukraine as traditional, non-crypto payment methods are being frozen and blocked.

Cryptocurrency has proven its use case as a superior source of funding in times of crisis. Fiat can be seized and gold is essentially useless.

The lesson is to have a diversified portfolio. If one asset proves to be useless then hopefully, the others will be helpful. With this current world crisis, cryptocurrency has further proven its worth.

Crypto Spotlight

Free claims or crypto airdrops are always nice. With some of these, you can get free crypto for having another cryptocurrency in your wallet, for example free HEX was given to Bitcoin holders who claimed it. This week I wanted to inform you of some potential free tokens that could be available to you if you own HEX or have any active HEX stakes.

The project is called Hedron (HDRN) and is described on their website https://www.hedron.pro/ .

Hedron uses a collection of smart contracts that live on the Ethereum and PulseChain blockchains to allow holders of HEX stakes to do 3 main things, which are:

1. Claim or mint HDRN tokens based on how many B-shares are in a HEX stake multiplied by the amount of time the stake has been active.

2. Allows stakers to borrow against their active HEX stakes.

3. Allows people to trade HEX stakes as NFT tokens on any compatible NFT marketplace.

“Hedron has no admin keys and no kill switches. Just like HEX, Hedron is completely decentralized with zero counterparty risk.”

So how do you get your free coins? The process is described on the website:

“Hedron analyzes a HEX stake and allows the staker to mint or borrow HDRN based on the amount of shares allocated to their stakes. If a staker emergency unstakes or otherwise ends their stake before minting their HDRN, they will no longer be able to mint HDRN against those stakes. Instanced (HSI) HEX stakes with active HDRN advances cannot End Stake until the advance is paid in full (Good Accounting can still be used).The maximum amount of mintable or borrowable days is equal to the full term of the stake.”

There are 2 options to claim your HDRN tokens. You can mint your tokens and they will instantly appear in your MetaMask wallet. The other option is to claim your HDRN and mint them at a later date. If you mint or claim your HDRN in the first 10 days, you get a 10x multiplier. The multiplier is effective for the total length of your Hex stake. So, if you are staked for 5555 days, you get the 10x multiplier for the entire time.

The Hedron team has developed the following chart to illustrate the innovative uses of Hedron, which include loans on HEX stakes and making HEX stakes tradeable by turning them into NFT tokens that can be traded on any compatible NFT marketplace.

In crypto there is such a thing as free money. You just have to know where to find it. Always do your own research, and see if HDRN might be something you might want to claim.

About the Author:

My Discord handle is Bobtilladhun.

I’m a long-term crypto investor. I bought my first Bitcoin in 2016 for $700. I sold 1/2 my BTC when the price doubled to satisfy my wife that I wasn’t going to lose all our money and made my initial investment back. Since that time, I have used my remaining Bitcoin stack to HODL and invest in interesting projects. I am a founding investor in VAULT and have accumulated a significant number of VAULT coins through holding my coins in CRYO and taking advantage of the compounding interest VAULT provides.

I was asked by Ian and the VAULT team to provide a weekly update on VAULT’s performance and current issues in cryptocurrency.

I hope these updates provide you with a quick overview of what is happening with VAULT and in the world of cryptocurrency.
