The Giving Block has launched the world’s largest cryptocurrency fundraising platform to coincide with Giving Tuesday (December 3, 2019), where the platform will co-promote with influencers, sponsors and partners, the top nonprofits accepting cryptocurrency donations for “Bitcoin Tuesday." 

What is Bitcoin Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is the biggest worldwide day of giving and is held on the Tuesday after the United States’ Thanksgiving. This year it will take place on December 3, 2019.


Bitcoin Tuesday is Giving Tuesday for cryptocurrencies. Similar to Giving Tuesday, during which donations are traditionally gifted in fiat, Bitcoin Tuesday pairs the viral nature of Giving Tuesday with Bitcoin’s online star power to drive crypto donations for nonprofits accepting them.


Why Do We Need Bitcoin Tuesday?


Giving Tuesday inspires millions around the world to support and give to the causes that matter to them. But, despite the enhanced tax benefits that crypto donations can offer donors, the day has failed to capture the attention of crypto donors in years past.

Bitcoin Tuesday will introduce a largely traditional audience to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, driving crypto adoption. When nonprofits accept crypto donations, the world sees crypto as the force for good we know it to be.


EVERYONE: Follow the #BitcoinTuesday on social and help us spread the love!

The Giving Block equips nonprofits with a cryptocurrency donation solution that accepts multiple cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Zcash and more), automatically converts crypto to cash, and generates tax receipts for donors.

It has also created the world’s largest aggregator of nonprofits accepting crypto, where many donors find clients. In addition, The Giving Block provides education, human support, and marketing so that non-profit teams can generate crypto revenue without the headaches normally associated with dealing in crypto..
