Young Ukrainian escapes war with USB stick holding 40% of his life savings in crypto. Crypto has made it possible for donations worth tens of millions of dollars to pour into the country while allowing some Ukrainians to take a portion of their life savings with them as they flee across the border. One of them is a 20-year-old man identified by the pseudonym ‘Fadey’, who managed to escape war and cross into Poland with 40% of his life savings in #Bitcoin contained on a USB stick, CNBC reported on March 23. He had a USB stick that contained around $2,000 in Bitcoin, equalling around 40% of Fadey’s life savings.
