Adopting cryptos by charities will help them increase their number of donors and opens them up to the limitless world of blockchain.
Consequently, Tour de Crypto will ride across America educating charities with the aim of making them buy into the idea of accepting cryptocurrencies. The Tour de Crypto team hopes that the crypto community will come out and support them in this noble cause.
