Why is WAVES price soaring?

Crypto has played a great role in donations being sent to Ukraine following the current invasion by Russia and the fact that WAVES founder is from Ukraine makes the coin attract a lot of attention within the crypto space where the majority are standing with Ukraine.
The other reason is the upcoming WAVES 2.0 upgrade, an enhanced version of WAVES that will focus on security, speed, and accessibility within the WAVES platform.
