What to do with all the money you’ve saved on Cyber Monday? Why not spend it all on Bitcoin Tuesday? Set the date for December 3, because The Giving Block is sending out e-vites to its virtual party, where everyone invited can donate their cryptocurrencies to charity.
A number of crypto-friendly non-profits are participating, including the Dementia Society of America, the Human Rights Foundation, Lupus Foundation of America, and Code to Inspire. More are on the way, including charity gift-card producer Charity on Top, and anti-surveillance browser, TOR.
The Giving Block, a charity platform that matches crypto philanthropists with non-profits, has also collaborated with the crypto-friendly privacy browser, Brave, which will turn all its ads into Bitcoin Tuesday ads on December 3. Brave is a crypto friendly browser that recently surpassed 9 million users, and lets its users earn money for watching ethical ads. Clicking on the Bitcoin Tuesday ad will funnel people toward Bitcoin Tuesday’s page, where they can donate, donate, donate.
“By dedicating 100% of our ad inventory to ads from participating charities on Giving Tuesday, we aim to bring a new level of awareness, reach and support to the causes and lives of the people who benefit from their important work,” said Luke Mulks, Director of Business Development at Brave.
And Giving Tuesday’s partnered with Bottle Pay a service that lets you link your Bitcoin wallet to your social media account. Bottle Pay is matching $5,000 worth of BTC donations to non-profits taking part, doubling potential donations.
The Giving Block accepts donations in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and more! And here’s the best bit—donors don’t even have to receive cryptocurrencies: The Giving Block’s non-profits can, if they so choose, accept donations in good, ol’ US dollars.
