“Pineapple” anonymous donates millions in Bitcoin 272

“Ананасовый” аноним  жертвует миллионы долларов в Биткоинах на благотворительность

A domain name pineapplefund.org was registered on December 4th, when bitcoin rate was around $11 000. Later, on December 13th a Reddit thread was created where one user called PineappleFund expressed his readiness to give 5076 Bitcoin to charity (which is about $86 million).

Pineapple philanthropist, who has a bitcoin-address in the list of top-250 “richest” ones, is not very optimistic about such a stunning Bitcoin growth.

PineappleFund also told that he has never strived for becoming rich and decided to donate most of his digital-assets to charity maintaining his anonymity. The philanthropist has financed six initiatives, having donated a total of $ 3 000500 so far.  At the same time anonymous notes that he is not going to splash his bitcoins, so it would not be a good idea to ask him for financial assistance.

And the answer to the question: “Why «PineappleFund»?”, is actually quite simple and clear:


“I love pineapples. The only bad thing about pineapples is that you can not eat a lot!”

Organizers Used Fake Lamborghinis to Attract Attention to the Consensus 2018 117

Organizers Used Fake Lamborghinis to Attract Attention to the Consensus 2018

Organizers of the conference Consensus 2018 in New York held a kind of promo-action by parking a “Lamborghini” in front of the entrance to the building, where the event was held. The vehicle was provided by the company Broadway Supercars from New Jersey. This has been reported by the CNBC channel.

The point of this was to pass the cars off as the transport of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency investors. As a result of an independent investigation it also became known that the last two Lamborghini vehicles belong to the owner of the renting company, John Nouri.

“We do a lot of this for a lot of companies all the time. It’s an attention grabber. It’s for the people walking in. They all say once you make money in crypto, you buy a lambo. I never made money with crypto but I have ten lambos.” – Nouri said.

The edition notes that the rental price of one vehicle of the company Broadway Supercars is $1000 per day, while its total cost is from $200 thousand and more.

“I see a parallel between young people that are really willing to become very rich with the very high-risk investment, and … the fact that our customers are very young,” Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali told CNBC in a recent interview.

Let us remind you that on Monday, the 14th of May, the Consensus 2018 blockchain conference started in New York. This event is currently the largest in the world. It is devoted to Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.
