Crypto Is Now Fastest Growing Donation for Fidelity Charity Arm217.9

Announced today, the global charity revealed it has received $69 million in cryptocurrency donations in 2017, making it the fastest-growing asset type accepted by the firm. The donations represent a tenfold increase since the organization started accepting bitcoin in late 2015, a figure that grew 140 percent faster than the other options that Fidelity Charitable accepts as donations, according to the company's vice president Amy Pirozzolo. The charity arm of the multinational investment firm first started accepting cryptocurrency through Coinbase's charity service in November 2015, but until this year, it didn't really see the funding mechanism take off. While it's impossible to correlate funding changes directly to the tweet, the following month, Fidelity received an additional $36 million-worth of crypto donations.
