On Friday, the Ukrainian government released the Meta History Museum of War, a digital museum featuring non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, memorializing the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.

Supported by Ukraine's Ministry of Digital Transformation, the museum has a strange quirk: all the NFTs in the museum can be purchased, but users cannot see the item they're buying until they've been sold. According to the museum, "you unveil the truth [by] buying MetaHistory."

Every image is linked to an NFT minted on the Fair NFT platform running on the Polygon network.

All of the NFTs will also be sold in chronological order, according to the museum, which implores users to "be the one to create history."
