The rapid spread and increasing deaths from Coronavirus have set the crypto community in a helping mood with Binance leading the way.

Binance Charity Foundation donated $1 million and pledged to match contributions of up to $4 million in its CryptoAgainstCOVID campaign. Now, the charity wing of Binance exchange is putting up a pledge to donate $1 for every retweet it gets in the tweet.
