Crypto Community Giving Donations Around the World
In the past 12 months, we have seen a large number of donations to many charity organizations. In late June, SafeEarth reported that it had donated more than $200,000 to various environmental causes this year. According to reports, these projects range from marine cleanup projects to medical care and education for children.
At the same time, during the second wave of the epidemic, which was badly hit in India, several personalities in the crypto space made crypto donations for India’s COVID-19 aid. Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Vitalik Buterin, for example, donated funds to both ETH and Maker (MKR).
Around the same time, Solana representatives announced they would donate $25,000 to the fight against COVID-19. This is in response to the death of Shakti Goap in May. Shakti Goap was the CEO of Solana’s frequent hackathon partner Devfolio.
