The past few days have been consumed by news of the record rainfall causing severe flooding destroying hundreds of houses in Hiroshima, Ehime and other prefectures in Western Japan.
Over 100 lives have been lost, and a mass devastation has been left behind from what has proven to be the deadliest rainfall in the past 35 years.
Multi-language cryptocurrency exchange Binance has already contributed a $1 million donation and is continuing to call on “crypto friends and partners” on all channels to participate in urgent fundraising.
Inspired by such a heartfelt plight, AidCoin, the ERC20 token launched by auction platform CharityStars, has since joined forces with Binance by utilizing its own blockchain-based ecosystem to fundraise for the people of Japan. The company has already attracted an astounding amount of attention on Twitter through its highly effective campaign; donating $5 worth of its AID every single time the following post was retweeted.
The campaign instantly transformed users into active instigators of support for Japan, and the original tweet was retweeted over 26,000 times, allowing AidCoin to generate $100,000 worth of funding. However, the campaign rages on, and AidCoin is still urging the online crypto community of supporters to make affordable donations in crypto to AIDChain’s Japan Relief fundraising campaign page.
Furthermore, AidCoin has generously pledged to match all funds raised within its dedicated AIDChain page. In using its payment gateway, AIDPay, donations can be made in 23 different cryptocurrencies are converted into AidCoin within a single AIDChain wallet.
