PRESS RELEASE. Charity donation project MUNCH announces the ground-breaking milestone of donating over 1000 ETH to various charitable projects, making MUNCH the world’s leading charitable crypto project.
MUNCH is a Defi project that incorporates automatic donations into financial transactions. 3% of every MUNCH transaction is diverted, automatically converted to ETH, and then routed to a community-chosen and verified charity. It requires no action or decision making and gives people autonomy over their investments.
MUNCH converts donations at the point of the transaction and sends it directly to the charity’s wallet address. This means that donations do not destabilize the token’s value and the charities can either store the ETH which has a relatively stable value or choose to auto-convert directly to FIAT as soon as they receive the donations.
Utilizing blockchain technology creates a system of automated, trustless donations, MUNCH has just celebrated the tremendous milestone of donating over 1000 ETH. (Valued at $4,205,120 at the time of writing). With no processing required, the crypto donated by MUNCH has been collected and is already in action around the world!
