Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and Polygon’s Sandeep Nailwal have pledged an additional $100 million for Covid-19 relief projects. Last year, they donated a similar amount through the Crypto Relief project, which provides long-term strategic funding for healthcare donations in India.
Buterin emphasizes the need for a global approach to tackling Covid and future pandemics. He is committed to supporting open-source solutions and focusing on medical and infrastructure work that is transparent and accountable to the public.
Cryptocurrency donations are being used for various causes, including relief efforts in Ukraine, Turkish earthquake emergency support, and aid for Canadian truckers.
