As we have stated here in Crypt Trend, the situation with the pandemic that is plaguing the world is a difficult one. Each country deals with it the way it can, causing discussions about the way governments organize themselves. However, the private sector is also seeking to collaborate in this struggle, including those in the cryptosystem. For this reason, today we present to you Binance Charity’s campaign to support Japan.
Binance Charity joins the fight against Coronavirus
Let’s save the world with crypto
On several occasions we have exposed the feats that the largest exchange of cryptomonies has managed to achieve, always with the aim of making a change in the world. However, this COVID-19 pandemic is arguably the biggest fight Binance Charity has ever faced, considering the magnitude of it.
The way the foundation is fighting against this virus, always with the support of the crypto community, is with diverse campaigns around the world, collecting money to be able to support the needy. The way they make these projects known is with their hashtag #CryptoAgainstCOVID. Seeking to represent, and channel, people who wish to donate cryptomoney to stop COVID-19.
To date, Binance and Binance Charity have coordinated the donation of 1.42 million masks, 53,000 personal protective suits and 50,000 gloves to 24 countries in need.

Japan: Locked in the sea
Moreover, as we said at the beginning of the article, all countries have been hit differently by this virus. If we look at the case of Japan, we can see that it has problems that other countries do not have to face.
For example, the island nation is slightly smaller than the state of California, but has almost three times the population, some 130 million people. Therefore, performing appropriate social distancing is complicated, given that they are trapped by miles of water.
To date, COVID-19 has infected more than 17,000 people and claimed more than 900 lives in Japan.
For this reason, Binance Charity through a press release announced a new campaign to help Japan. Inviting people who wish to donate to the cause of #CryptoAgainstCOVID, you can contribute your cryptos between June 12 and June 26. Emphasizing that each token donated will be directed to buy medical supplies.
In addition, we have to emphasize that, thanks to the power of crypto and Cryoto Engine, Binance Charity prepared a platform where you can follow in real time every token you have donated. Seeing this way how the foundation decided to use your contribution.
