Crypto Doing Crypto Things, Binance Launches Donation Channel to Rebuild Notre-Dame Cathedral

The virtual currency exchange Binance has recently launched a cryptocurrency donation program in order to support the reconstructionof the Notre Dame cathedral. The information was released by Binance Charity a few hours ago.

Binance Supports Campaign to Rebuild Notre Dame

On April 15, a fire broke out on the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. The fire has affected the structure and several parts of the interior of the architectonic masterpiece. This event has shocked the entire world and the crypto community as well.

This is why Binance decided to start a charity campaign by calling crypto colleagues to show support for Notre Dame cathedral and make a crypto donation.

The donation program is called “Rebuild Notre-Dame” and users in the crypto space can donate funds to help repair the medieval cathedral. The funds will be given to the corresponding authorities in France.

“It was a great moment of loss for culture, arts, and history shared by all humankind,” reads the donation campaign.

At the time of writing this article, the campaign received 28 different donations in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Binance Coin (BNB). The donations reached 1.46 Bitcoin worth more than $7,500 at current prices.

Binance is the third largest cryptocurrency exchange in terms of trading volume according to CoinMarketCap. In the last 24 hours, the exchange handled more than $800 million in volume.

A Twitter user and Journalist from France, Grégory Raymond, uploaded a QR code requesting for Bitcoin donations and help raise funds for the cathedral. The main intention was to show the French authorities that Bitcoin can be a good way to send and receive funds and it can also work for a good cause.

Bernard Arnault, the CEO of luxury goods group LVMH, has decided to donate several millions of dollars to restore the Cathedral. Other rich families such as the Bettencourt Meyers family decided to give funds to help rebuild Notre Dame de Paris.
