Bitcoin Community Donates $9 Million over 6 Months to a Charitable Fund

Bitcoin Community Donates $9 Million over 6 Months to a Charitable Fund

The Bitcoin community is popular for all the right and wrong reasons. While many continue to look down upon Bitcoin as the preferred currency of criminals, and Bitcoin users as people who are prone to do illegal things. They overlook the fact that the Bitcoin community members are a philanthropic lot too,


The presence of an altruistic streak among the Bitcoin community members has come into the picture again after Fidelity Charitable released its Fidelity Charitable 2017 Giving Report. According to the report, there has been a significant increase in the amount and number of Bitcoin donations the organization has received.


Since the beginning of the year 2017, the total contributions made in the form of Bitcoin to Fidelity Charitable stands at $9 million. The numbers, during the first half of the year, is said to be $2 million more than the overall Bitcoin donations received by the organization in 2016.
