Make Bitcoin Tuesday a time for giving

Crypto donation firm The Giving Block is launching a new donations campaign on Dec. 1

With the holiday season around the corner and both bitcoin and altcoins going through the roof, it’s time to start thinking about charitable giving.

To aid those who’d like to give their bitcoin profits in BTC, cryptocurrency donations company The Giving Block is launching a new and presumably annual fundraising campaign, Bitcoin Tuesday.

The Dec. 1 fundraising campaign aims to “recreate the magic” of the 2017 Pineapple Fund, and is greatly aided by the fact that the number of charities and nonprofits accepting donations directly in BTC has jumped 10 time since 2019, from 12 to more than 120. That includes some big-name charities, including Save the Children, No Kid Hungry and The American Cancer Society.
