Three donors that gave over one million in cryptocurrency include Brian Armstrong himself. The other million-dollar donors are Ripple’s Executive Chairman Chris Larsen and Zcash CEO Zooko Wilcox.
Ben Delo, the co-founder of crypto and derivatives exchange BitMEX, donated over $250,000 in crypto to GiveCrypto as well.
Other notable donors include Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, Brock Pierce from the Bitcoin Foundation, and Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com.
Gemini’s President and CEO, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, both donated over $50,000 in support of this charity as well.
Smaller, individual donations make up a relatively small chunk of GiveCrypto’s total fundraising efforts at this point in time. That makes sense since most people passionate about donating in crypto are likely to already be involved in the blockchain ecosystem in some way or another.
However, as cryptocurrencies become more accepted, mainstream traction is expected to pick up.
