It makes a lot of sense because charities, much like small businesses, get hit with a lot of processing fees because they don’t really do huge volume like a major retailer does,” explained Dave Bradley, head of Bitcoin Brains, which is already responsible for the first brick-and-mortar crypto-currency store in the city as well as the first ATM.

Bradley said it costs a charity a few man-hours to set up the donation portal on their respective website, but added “it’s all upside from there, really.” He said he was aware of one other charity accepting Bitcoins, but believes the number involved will balloon over time.
