Dear WHO,

We at CoinTelegraph have recently been made aware of the Ebola virus outbreak currently sweeping across Africa. With the death toll of almost 900 people in several months, and with several cases reported in the UK and the US, we cannot just stand by the wayside and do nothing, especially since it has become easier than ever to do something.

Back in 2008, Bitcoin was emerged on the scene as the first peer-to-peer decentralized currency. In 2014, this digital currency has grown and matured. Now anyone can send money instantly to any point in the world with almost zero friction and for a negligible fee compared to conventional money transfer methods.

With Bitcoin’s popularity on the rise in Africa in particular, it is a no brainer for us that this technology can make a real difference on the ground in Africa. Specifically, this money will go to the World Health Organization who will use it to develop a cure and vaccine for the Ebola virus.

This is why we have set up a digital wallet for donations, where everyone from anywhere in the world can send any amount instantly. We believe this is the next generation of crowdfunding that circumvents any red tape, bureaucracy, and is the most effective tool currently available to gather the necessary funds to resolve this urgent problem.
