The support from the crypto-industry to stem the pandemic of sars coronavirus rages. The crypto-company BitMEX shows his generosity by making a donation of $ 2.5 million to support the efforts of four organizations that are active in the fight against the sars coronavirus.

A gift against the coronavirus

BitMEX is fully committed in the global fight against the sars coronavirus through to a financial support of 2.5 million dollars which will be distributed to four non-profit organizations. Gates foundation Philanthropy Partners, Nuclear Threat Initiative, OpenMined, and Our World in Data will receive each of the grants included between 300 000 to 1 000 000 dollars.

“We are committed to provide grants reflected and to ensure that our actions during the crisis COVID-19 can have the greatest impact now and in the future,” said Arthur Hayes, co-founder and CEO of HDR Overall.

In addition to supporting cash, BitMex recommends that act in a coordinated manner to contain the crisis of the sars coronavirus. More specifically, the crypto-exchange calls on all economic actors to make a difference in this fight against the coronavirus and support the ongoing efforts of charities and governments to put an end to the health crisis today.

The crypto-businesses in the first front

BitMEX is not the only company in the crypto-industry to lend a hand to organizations dedicated to anti-coronavirus. The head of the list, one of the major crypto-exchanges in the world, Binance, has awarded $ 2.4 million to supply medical supplies to hospitals through its foundation Binance Charity.
Recently, the crypto-exchange Waves has also participated in campaigns to collect funds for the charitable organizations engaged in the fight against the COVID-19. These contributions are timely and will strengthen the barrier against the rapid spread of the virus that has already infected more than 2.4 million people across the world.
