Rainforest Foundation US’s Suzanne Pelletier and other charity heads discuss the future of cryptocurrency.
In 2014, we began exploring blockchain technology because we knew it held great potential to advance our mission. Today, more than ever, we are convinced that crypto can become a powerful and effective tool for rainforest protection.
Why cryptocurrency makes a great donation: In the United States, and many other jurisdictions, cryptocurrencies are classified as property for tax purposes (like stocks). This means that when you donate appreciated crypto directly to a nonprofit, you don’t owe capital gains tax on those earnings, and neither does the nonprofit, which means you can donate more, and pay less in taxes. It’s that simple.
We can accept the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Dai (DAI), Amp (AMP), The Graph (GRT), Storj (STORJ), UMA (UMA), Chainlink (LINK), 0x (ZRX), and 1inch (1INCH).
