In the coming weeks, The Giving Block will launch the world’s largest cryptocurrency fundraising platform. On Giving Tuesday, joined by influencers, sponsors and partners, the top nonprofits accepting crypto will band together to accept crypto through the platform for “Bitcoin Tuesday”.
Giving Tuesday is the biggest worldwide day of giving and is held on the Tuesday after the United States’ Thanksgiving. Similar to Giving Tuesday, during which donations are traditionally gifted in fiat, Bitcoin Tuesday pairs the viral nature of Giving Tuesday with Bitcoin’s online starpower to drive crypto donations for nonprofits accepting them.
Giving Tuesday inspires millions around the world to support and give to the causes that matter to them. But, despite the enhanced tax benefits that crypto donations can offer donors, the day has failed to capture the attention of crypto donors in years past.
Bitcoin Tuesday will introduce a largely traditional audience to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, driving crypto adoption. When nonprofits accept crypto donations, the world sees crypto as the force for good we know it to be.
