Bitcoin Press Release: SAN FRANCISCO (JULY 8, 2015) – Bidding for the BitGive 2nd Anniversary Online Auction in support of the BitGive Foundation is now open and will run until the July 22nd. All funds raised through the auction will support the US-registered Bitcoin charity in its efforts to facilitate the generous spirit of the Bitcoin community and to demonstrate the social impact of bitcoin and blockchain technology.
The Foundation, in partnership with Better World Collective, has collected a variety of items and services from generous donors in the bitcoin community, including Overstock.com.
“In addition to striving to improve the quality of life in developing nations, we at Overstock also strongly believe in the empowering nature of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin,” said Overstock CEO Patrick M. Byrne. “It’s satisfying to be supporting both at the same time by working with the BitGive Foundation.”
Bitcoin PR agency Bitcoin PR Buzz has also donated a Bitcoin press release to BitGive for the purposes of the auction, and to support the important work Bitcoin charities engage in.
People can bid on a wide selection of items like Casascius coins (donated by C4), jewelry (donated by Overstock and independent designers), crypto artwork, autographed Bitcoin books
