Church in Z
While some mainstream media sources will have you believe that bitcoin is only used for buying illicit drugs, contracting hitmen and laundering money, the truth is that it is being used for so much more than that ' just like fiat currency. The latest example is a religious body that now allows members to donate using cryptocurrency.
Swiss Bitcoin Church
'Digital currencies and the blockchain technology will change our daily lives more and more in the next years,' the spokesperson of the church, Nicolas Legler, told Swiss news agency Idea. 'Cryptocurrencies will be implemented, be it Bitcoin or other currencies controlled by the State. We are convinced that this technology will soon belong to our daily lives. Twenty years ago, no one would have believed that internet would determine our lives so much,' he added.
Preaching to the Young
We should also note that this is just another example of how young people are changing the donations practice. A couple of notable other examples include Pineapple Fund, the $86 million bitcoin charity which contributed towards developing MDMA as a treatment for PTSD, scalable healthcare in Nepal, combating elephant poachers, testing universal basic income in Africa, and much more; as well as Paxful's #BuiltWithBitcoin initiative to help fund 100 schools in developing countries.
