The Giving Block and YAP Global to raise awareness about how crypto can be used for the greater good



The Giving Block and YAP Global will be sharing stories of nonprofits accepting cryptocurrency donations and blockchain companies who are in a unique position to give back amidst this global pandemic.


“We’re excited to be working with YAP Global to reach a broader audience and help nonprofits raise more crypto. Most cryptocurrency users still don’t realize there is a major tax incentive to donate cryptocurrency. For many people, donating crypto is much more tax efficient than donating fiat.” - Alex Wilson, Co-Founder


The Giving Block recently led a #CryptoCOVID19 fundraising relief efforts that raised more than $1 million in Bitcoin and other Crypto.


Highlights of the fundraise included Gitcoin’s innovative quadratic fundraising initiative and a fundraising drive during CoinDesk’s Consensus Distributed conference for New York Blockchain Week.


“We want to support The Giving Block by educating and informing the blockchain and cryptocurrency community of a way they can make a positive impact on the world by donating their cryptocurrency holdings to global charities that need all the support they can get especially during this unstable economic climate,” said Samantha Yap, CEO of YAP Global.


The YAP Global team, made up of storytellers from around the globe, will be sharing important stories about The Giving Block’s partners, nonprofits and notable philanthropic cryptocurrency efforts globally as part of their mission to act as a bridge between quality journalism and emerging technology companies making a difference in the world.


YAP Global believes the more people and organizations who understand how to give and accept crypto, the bigger difference our community can make.
