Coin Idol

Crypto community to chose which charity Coinidol.com sends $1,000 of scammers’ money.

Coinidol is asking the crypto community to suggest which charity organization should get the donation of $1,000 in Bitcoin. Yesterday, March 20th, the public trial of Jawad Yaqub was closed and community has decided to send the scammers’ money to charity. Now, we need to define the recipient organization of this transaction. 

CoinIdol will search for the right non-profit organisation to send these funds to. That's not an easy task, because there are a lot of non-transparent organisations, that claim they are doing charity. That's why we ask community activists and members of the jury, who have voted before to vote for the right organisation to get the money. 

We ask you to: 

1. vote for one of the charity organisations in the list below or 
2. suggest another non-profit organization that you believe should receive these funds and write about it in the comments below the article. If you have suggested an organisation, that is NOT included in the list below, please, don't forget to give the name of the organisation, a description of it and the website. 

So far, we have received several suggestions of non-profit organizations accepting donations in Bitcoin, where we could send funds to. 


BitGive is the first Bitcoin 501(c)(3) nonprofit, giving it tax exemption status at the federal level in the United States. It was founded in 2013 and since then has built a positive philanthropic representative organization for the Bitcoin and Blockchain industry, bridging the gap between an innovative technology and its practical applications for nonprofits and humanitarian work in the developing world.
