Anonymous Crypto Donors Are Changing Philanthropy


In October, a donor took our Crypto Giving Pledge anonymously earlier than donating $3.5 million ETH to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). The cause this donor needed anonymity wasn’t fairly as emotionally charged as different instances, however it was but once more an fascinating human expertise. They had made cash in crypto – some huge cash – for the primary time of their life. To date, they’d lived a quiet life and needed to maintain it that approach. They weren’t keen to danger sharing their identification with a nonprofit whose advertising staff might by chance toss their present into their social plan and, with a tweet, change the way in which their family and friends handled them perpetually. They got here to us, donated anonymously, wrote a good looking letter about MSF that left our staff in tears, then vanished.
