BTC donation address
Forest fires in Australia remain the largest forest fire crisis in history, bringing damage to both residential and wildfires. Fires have captured more than 14.5 million acres and are spreading themselves as local storms cause more fires. Australia is home to very diverse wildlife and habitat loss, which means the crisis of the entire world due to the loss of animal populations.
The fact that nobody is talking about how Australia is still on fire really bothers me.. This is the worst bushfire in record history. I wish people could get their priorities straight on what really matters. #AustraliaBurning pic.twitter.com/273qCMN910

The hashtag #AustraliaBurn was spread between the cryptocurrency community, and the Bitcoin donation address was opened for donation, and about 0.26 BTC was collected. Bitcoin donations are taking place when the address is made public to increase the amount significantly after the hashtag was released.
Bitcoin donation is not a new phenomenon as there have been many projects opening donations to various projects. Donations are by far the most valuable, and deciding to open a donation address simply will save people from the hassle of going through an intermediary.
The linkage of forest fires to global climate change also raises attention to this issue. Over the past year, the entire crypto community has rejoined efforts to combat climate change with sporadic and organized contributions.

Although Sun has moved forward to support her campaign for $ 1 million, it’s not clear how cryptocurrencies will help reduce carbon footprints through the decentralized payment mechanism.
In this regard, Sun explained that decentralized payments and other financial platforms operate on the cloud, thereby eliminating the need for physical-based documents.
