I’m donating 5057 BTC to charitable causes! Introducing The Pineapple Fund

Hello!

I remember starting at bitcoin a few years ago. When bitcoin broke single digits for the first time, I thought that was a triumphant moment for bitcoin. I watched and admired the price jump to $ 15.. $ 20.. $ 30.. wow!

Today, I see $ 17,539 per BTC. I still don't believe reality sometimes. Bitcoin has changed my life, and I have far more money than I can ever spend. My aims, goals, and motivations in life have nothing to do with having XX million or being the mega rich. So I'm doing something else: donating the majority of my bitcoins to charitable causes. I'm calling it 🍍 The Pineapple Fund.

Yes, donating ~$ 86 million worth of bitcoins to charities 🙂

So far, The Pineapple Fund has/is:

  • Donated $ 1 million to Watsi, an impressively innovative charity building technology to finance universal healthcare.

  • Donated $ 1 million to The Water Project, a charity providing sustainable water projects to suffering communities in Africa

  • Donating $ 1 million to the EFF, defending rights and privacy of internet users, fighting for net neutrality, and far far more

  • Donated $ 500k to BitGive Foundation, a charity building projects that leverage bitcoin and blockchain technology for global philanthropy.

If you know a registered nonprofit charity, please encourage them to apply on the fund's website! While I prefer supporting registered charities, I am open to supporting charitable causes as well. Check out the website 🙂
