Why is Bitcoin Tuesday Important?


Cryptocurrency is one of the fastest-growing donation methods. There are over 101+ Million cryptocurrency users most of them between the ages of 20 to 40. These cryptocurrency users are holding cryptocurrency as an asset for the long term.

Once crypto users have held onto the assets for over a year they are the most incentivized to bypass the capital gains tax by donating crypto to nonprofits.
