Mexico Earthquake Relief Fund accepts cryptocurrency

Mexico has just suffered a disastrous earthquake, with buildings clearly seen moving on related videos. The fund established to help the victims accepts not only money, but cryptocurrency as well, including: Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple. The local cryptocurrency exchange, Bitso, has built a reliable mechanism when every transaction “will be turned into a verifiable receipt signed by the country’s central bank”, as newsbtc.com tells.

The aforementioned website also makes it clear that helping one of these funds is not only a chance to help victims of the serious catastrophe, but also will help to show the public that cryptocurrency community is not a bunch of criminals. The Red Cross and Brigada de Rescate Topos Tlatelolco A.C. are also involved in helping – a part of money donated to this Relief Fund will be sent to these respected organizations.

Those who often read the news can remember a recent similar case when the cryptocurrency enthusiast decided to help the victims of the hurricane in the United States and travelled in a pickup, buying all necessary goods along the way and updating his status in the blog. The United States cryptocurrency community has demonstrated huge solidarity with his mission and sent considerable digital currency sums.
