Markets Update: The Top 68 Cryptos Dive During the January Slump (news.bitcoin.com)

Cryptocurrency markets are having a tough time during the third week of the new year as a vast majority of digital assets are down 20 percent or more. Currently, the BTC/USD global average is roughly $ 12,050 after touching a high of $ 14,300 just 24-hours prior. The sudden losses started taking place yesterday evening when bitcoin markets dipped into the $ 13K territory.

I’m donating 25 Bitcoin to good causes – UPDATE

Goal

At the start of December I pledged to donate 25 Bitcoin, 1 each day leading up to Christmas, to a cause suggested by r/Bitcoin. This was done publically in the hope to inspire others to donate too, especially people who have benefited from the rise in price recently.

 

It took a long time to read every comment, private message and to check everyones suggestions. Unfortunately not many suggested charities accept Bitcoin. I am posting this update so people can make suggestions for the last few donations and see a list of causes donated to so far.

 

I am hoping that this post and donations will still encourage others in the community to give Bitcoin to good causes.

 

Get involved

Submit a suggestion in the comments of a cause you would like to see donated to. Also post a link to their Bitcoin donation page (not address) if possible. Even if your suggestion is not donated to by me hopefully it may be seen by others here who may choose to donate.

 

I'll ignore any scams, begging, college fund requests etc.
I don't donate to individuals so please don't post or PM.

If you wish to give but don't have the time to check these posts for suggestions you can send Bitcoin to my address:  

34WbSyrtibUJiFbRa7ukLC8RGdFMnQRn4b  

I will divide the extra Bitcoin sent to that address by 25 and donate it to each of the chosen causes once all my 25 Bitcoin have been donated.

Thanks to the people who have donated to my address so far.

P.S I have not seen any suggestions yet for charities dealing with addiction. It would be great if we could get some suggestions for alcohol, drug or gambling addiction.
