Global warming, global hunger, respect for human rights: can Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptos in general solve these problems? Jack Dorsey is supporting Bitcoin funding for a cause to fight police brutality in Nigeria.
Bitcoin, this anti-police brutality activist
The CEO of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey, encourages its followers to make donations in BTC for movement #endSARS (Special Anti-Robbery Squad), an organization accused of police brutality in Nigeria.
The link to the site mentioned in the publication refers to a group run by a coalition of Nigerian feminists who operate through fundraising, social media and protest movements.
This Coalition reportedly harvested 62.6 million Nigerian naira, which represents approximately USD 137,678 : Almost 13 million naira, or 28,000 USD, has been released to support several movements across the country.
A series of protests began on October 4, 2020 with several thousand people calling for the dissolution of the SARS. Several crypto start-ups such as BuyCoins and Busha have made donations.
Bitcoin in support of Africa
The CEO of the cryto P2P marketplace Paxful, Ray youssef, also showed his support by retweeting the hashtag #endSARS.
Youssef accused police of primarily targeting young people who used cryptocurrency.
Paxful is one of the most popular platforms ofAfrica. Dorsey is well known for its favorable position Bitcoin and recently renewed its support for the latter with his company Square who bought BTC valued at $ 50 million.
The Twitter CEO is also enthusiastic about the development of cryptocurrencies in Africa.
He had announced the possibility of resettling on the continent, but the spread of the pandemic had prompted him to reconsider his plans.
If the real Satoshi Nakamoto revealed his true identity, he would certainly be treated as a hero by some people, and an enemy of the state by others. Will Bitcoin challenge the established order for a more just world? Will BTC really be able to solve some social, political and economic problems? Perhaps too much hope is placed in the oldest crypto. But Bitcoin is more than just a crypto, it’s hard to pin down. Come on, a call to a good cause to conclude: retweet the #endSARS – it’s free – and make some donations in BTC if you want to finance this movement.
