Italy Started Accepting Donations In Bitcoins

A sudden flurry of Bitcoin donations—raising €10,000 ($10,900) in three days—have paid for an advanced medical post in Italy.

The brand-new advanced medical post (AMP) for pre-triage was set up in Castel Gandolfo on April 5 to help fight the coronavirus outbreak. Donations were made in Bitcoin on peer-to-peer natural disaster aid platform Helperbit.

Colli Albani Committee—Italian Red Cross—launched this coronavirus-focused Bitcoin fundraising campaign on March 12. According to Helperbit, the initiative attracted a lot of media attention since it was the first such effort in the Italian cryptocurrency sector.

The initial goal of €10,000 ($10,900) in BTC was achieved in just three days, according to Helperbit’s latest blog post. The equipment for the AMP was delivered on March 27, while the tent itself was set up and operational by April 5.

At the time of writing, donations have already exceeded the second target of €25,000 and reached €29,115 ($31,686) on April 7.
