The number of deaths caused by the new Corona virus is increasing day by day. Countless medical teams are going to Wuhan to support the victims. Cryptocurrency exchange Binance helps Corona virus victims with a pledge of 10m RMB donation, which is around US$ 1.5 million. Moreover, some blockchain and cryptocurrency companies have pledged to help coronavirus victims in Wuhan, China.
27 January, 2020 | AtoZ Markets – The new virus (Coronavirus) has already infected thousands of people. The Wuhan city has been closed by the Chinese authorities to minimize the impact of the Coronavirus. According to the New York Times report, more than 80 people have died from this mysterious virus so far. Moreover, more than 1000 people have been diagnosed in Wuhan. Besides, the concern grows as the epidemic spreads around the world. Indeed, confirmed cases of infected people had been reported in Europe, the Americas and other regions of the world.
Binance Steps Up for Humanitarian Causes
Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, Binance CEO said that his company had pledged RMB 10 million (approximately $1.5m) to help corona virus victims. He apparently denied any use of the crypto assets in this. He also said, it is unrealistic to do crypto to end beneficiaries for the Wuhan outbreak.
Cryptocurrency exchange Binance is still working on logistics for this move. Binance CEO said that:
“We have not made any announcements. But the BCF/Binance team has been busy in the last few days. We still need help to arrange logistics locally.”
