About Pineapple Fund was an experiment in philanthropy with cryptocurrency wealth. What happens when your ‘play-money’ becomes a treasure chest, and you’re past the satiety point of money? I decided to donate the majority of bitcoin charity cryptocurrency to charities around the world, with an open application process and funding charities big and small.
I focused on causes I believe in, or causes I know will work from my experiences. I’m happy and proud of the impact that will come, mostly thanks to the amazing charities and the dedicated people behind them. I’m going to remain anonymous, because the point of the Pineapple Fund is not me. I consider this project a success. On a larger scale, the Pineapple Fund created a more mysterious form of cryptocurrency philanthropy.
250 largest holders of Bitcoin in the world. 20 million worth of the currency to 13 organizations, including million-dollar donations to the Water Project, which provides clean water to people in sub-Saharan Africa, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights watchdog. Whoever Pine is, he or she seems to have found a way to convert Bitcoin into something actually useful. Pineapple Fund is about making bold and smart bets that hopefully impact everyone in our world. The Pineapple Fund is not affiliated with any supported charity. Apply Applications are closed for the Pineapple Fund.
