In October last year, Binance Charity raised more than $4 million in cryptocurrencies as part of its Crypto vs. COVID project, which was launched in March 2020.
The initiative provided assistance in 20 countries around the world and more than 450 million pieces of personal protection equipment had been sent to medical institutions last year.
