Why Donate LINK?

Since LINK has appreciated significantly, donating LINK and other cryptocurrencies can save you money on your taxes. Because the IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property, this means you don’t have to pay capital gains tax on your donation and can deduct the amount on your tax return. This is why financial advisors recommend you donate your most highly appreciated assets first. Users who donate and enter their email address will automatically get a compliant tax receipt.

Don’t want your LINK stack to decrease? Repurchase the same amount of LINK afterwards and still get the same tax benefits to offset some (or all) of your gains.

We look forward to working with the LINK marines to support causes around the world.

In order to give as many users as possible a tax efficient way to donate, we will continue to add coins requested by the community. What should we add next? Let us know by tagging@TheGivingBlock on Twitter!
