The coronavirus is continuing the spread. But over the last two weeks, crypto twitter has taken the fight to, well, twitter. The #cryptoCOVID19 campaign has spurred thousands of crypto users to take action, supplying us with a seemingly endless supply of innovative cryptocurrency fundraising ideas to support nonprofits on the frontlines. We are completely unsurprised to report that these fundraising ideas are infinitely more innovative than those of the average no-coiner. Here are a handful of the fun ways that you can use some sats to help the planet squash the coronavirus bug:
Play poker at cryptocovid19.com
Join Charlie Shrem, Peter McCormack and other crypto influencers for an online charity poker tournament to help fight the rapidly spreading COVID-19 or Coronavirus. The tournament is on Thursday April 9th at 8pm EST to raise money for charities on the frontlines of this crisis. The event will be capped at 2,000 players with 50% donated and 50% going toward the pot.

Buy Victory Soap at victorysoap.eth
In World War II, civilians grew "Victory Gardens" supporting food needs at home so non-perishables could be sent to the allied forces on the front lines. Today, you can purchase Victory Soap with your Ethereum. A fun spin on a must-have product. Victory Soap is aimed squarely at getting soap in people's hands — literally — while raising awareness and money for hospitals as all retail proceeds go to #cryptoCOVID19 nonprofits.

Meetup with your friends pioneerclub.io
Pioneer Club hosted a meetup for interesting people in crypto to come together and support coronavirus relief efforts. From miners to defi, traders to devs, the event was filled with interesting conversations as people hopped from “room” to “room” to get acquainted. We hope you’ll host your own meet up and encourage your friends to donate crypto!
