One of the biggest crypto exchange in the world, Binance, intensified its efforts in the crypto world calling for monetary aid to help to rebuild Notre-Dame de Paris in France. Yet, the monetary aid will be provided in crypto.
The idea was initiated by the CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, to kill two birds with one stone, in particular, to help to restore an 800-year-old cathedral and to show the world that crypto can bring good.
Reading the comments, please understand Charity is not exclusive, or obligatory. Feel free to choose the program you wish to donate to.
If we can push crypto to the last mile of Cathedral building, it's the ultimate #adoption.

The Rebuild Notre-Dame campaign was launched on April 17. On the main page, the crypto exchange expressed its deep sorrow for the cathedral and emphasized its historical importance. In addition, Binance urges its colleagues in the crypto space to make donations and support the campaign.
“As a pioneer of using blockchain for social good, BCF launched a crypto-fundraising channel. We call on our colleagues in the crypto space to show your support for our campaign to Crypto-Rebuild Notre Dame.”
The donations can be done anonymously or by name. At the time of writing, there are 48 donations that gather 3.1293BTC (~$16443) in total.
Not only Binance is concerned about the future of the Notre-Dame de Paris, but also Disney and Apple are. The former company donated about $5 million, the latter did not specify the amount.
The CEO of Disney, Robert Iger, posted a tweet where he expresses that “The Walt Disney Company stands with our friends & neighbors in Paris, with heartfelt support.”

We remind you that the Cathedral’s spire and roof have burnt down earlier this week, such sad news upset millions of people around the world. Notably, YouTube flagged the live steam video of the Notre-Dame Fire as the Sept. 11 attacks. See details here:
