Binance launched the Rebuild Notre Dame campaign on April 17. On the fundraising page, the crypto juggernaut wrote:
“On April 15, 2019, fire broke out of the roof of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France, severely damaging the edifice and destroying valuable artworks and relics.”
“It was a great moment of loss for culture, arts, and history shared by all humankind.”
“As a pioneer of using blockchain for social good, BCF launched a crypto-fundraising channel. We call on our colleagues in the crypto space to show your support for our campaign to Crypto-Rebuild Notre Dame.”
You can make contributions either by name or anonymously. As of this writing, the campaign has received 29 donations in 12 hours. Contributions top 1.47 BTC, or roughly $7,646.
So far, the Binance fundraising drive is off to an encouraging start.
Binance Is Outdoing French Crypto Fundraiser
The Binance campaign is doing considerably better than a similar donation drive that was launched on April 15 by French crypto journalist Grégory Raymond.
