Community-driven decentralized finance (DeFi) token MoonBoys Finance and charity token HOPE TOKEN also made large donations. Dan Bainbridge, evangelist investor, and blockchain marketer is also a long-term supporter of the charity. He has also pledged a crypto donation worth more than $10,000.
Charlotte Campbell, the charity head of fundraising, stated:
Its [sic] been quite a journey since we first started the process to seeing donations of £10,000, £20,000 even £70,000 come through – as a fundraiser that will always be incredibly exciting. We are beyond grateful to the generous donors who have made it possible for CHUF to continue to bring smiles to the faces of Heart Heroes across the UK.
The cryptocurrency world moves so fast, which can be unnerving to some charities, but it is also incredibly exciting. The crypto community has really embraced us as one of their own, and we are incredibly grateful to be able to work with people who are so passionate about having a positive impact on the world.
