International Bitcoiners Pitch In on Notre-Dame Restoration Effort
Landon Manning's original article for bitcoinmagazine.com reduced by 56%
The Bitcoin community has been contributing to a crowdfunding campaign to restore the famous Notre-Dame de Paris, which suffered a catastrophic fire on April 15, 2019. The fire caused significant damage to the church, causing, amongst other damage, the building's spire to collapse and the roof to burn away. Money was already spread thin over the potential reconstruction efforts, with the French government offering less than a third of the funds required for renovation.
Joining the outpouring of international support to address the fire damage, French economic journalist Grégory Raymond has called the crypto community to help with this task, setting up a wallet with several others to quickly accept donations for Notre-Dame's reconstruction. Prioritizing the speed of getting the funds raised, the donation address does not currently have any verification beyond Raymond's credentials as a recognized journalist for a major French publication. Earlier this very month, even, bitcoiners worldwide funded the legal fees for Hodlonaut, creator of the Lightning Torch, after Craig Wright sued him for defamation.
This same spirit of generosity and borderless value distribution may be of great help to the venerable cathedral as well.
