In the past couple of years, the cryptocurrency communities have come forth offering their help and support in the form of charities. Several non-profit organizations from around the world have claimed that receiving many charities from cryptocurrency sources.
Now, the majority of the organizations from around the world are posting cryptocurrency wallet addresses so the cryptocurrency communities can also donate. Surprisingly, the cryptocurrency communities have shown their generosity by donating millions for charitable causes.

On a daily basis, the number of COVID-19 cases in India is on the rise, and as per the latest reports; the daily COVID-19 cases in India have crossed 400k per day.
Therefore, CEOs of several major cryptocurrency firms including Vitalik Buterin (founder of Ethereum), also donated around a million for the Indians.
