Fidelity Charitable, the second largest charity in the U.S., is now partnered with Coinbase to allow people to contribute bitcoin to their donor-advised funds. Fidelity Charitable worked with Fidelity Labs, a unit of Fidelity Investments on the integration.
Bitcoin is useful in the world of charitable giving because it allows people to quickly and cheaply contribute any amount of value globally.
