Signal Foundation Also Takes Donations in Privacy Coins
According to an announcement via Twitter, the organization encouraged people to arrange donations via cryptocurrencies, but it’s not limited to bitcoin (BTC) or ethereum (ETH).
Per their landing page, the foundation also supports litecoin (LTC), chainlink (LINK), zcash (ZEC), amp (AMP), Basic Attention Token (BAT), dai (DAI), gemini dollar (GUSD), storj (STORJ), and 0x (ZRX).
The addition of privacy coins comes in response to a number of social media users asking Signal to add such cryptos to “comply” with their privacy-driven philosophy.
A tweet from Signal reads:
As a nonprofit organization, we depend on your support. If you’ve been patiently waiting for Signal to accept cryptocurrency donations, you no longer need to hodl back your generosity.
Regarding the crypto payment processor used, the Signal Foundation stated it will handle all payments via The Giving Block, a company specialized in processing crypto donations for nonprofit organizations.
Moreover, the team behind the Signal app pointed out that those who want to claim U.S. tax deduction can optionally “provide an email address to receive a tax receipt.”
The foundation further clarified that The Giving Block supports anonymous donations.
