The effort that has surrounded Hurricane Dorian has been astounding and thanks to the help of bitcoin, things seem to be looking up for the future of the Bahamas.
The unlikely ally has been able to help the relief effort for the hurricane thanks to the charity organisation Left a Hand Bahamas. Based on the nation, the organisation has set up an account on crypto payment service Coinbase Commerce in the aftermath of Dorian’s attack.
The giant US crypto platform Coinbase has even plugged the organisation:

Aside from using Coinbase, people will be able to make donations to help the effort in the Bahamas through the BTC payment service provider BitPay.
Cryptocurrency donations will be specifically used to fund educational initiatives according to the charity organisation.
This isn’t the first time bitcoin has been helping charitable causes though. When the Notre Dame Cathedral was on fire, donations came in almost instantly from people across the globe. Several efforts to raise cryptocurrency donations were made to meet the costs of rebuilding the iconic monument.
