Binance has announced its intention to distribute BNB worth $100 to users located in the areas most severely impacted by the recent earthquake in Turkey. The company will use Proof of Address (POA) forms submitted by users from 10 affected areas, including; Kahramanmaras, Kilis, Diyarbakir, Adana, Osmaniye, Gaziantep, Sanliurfa, Adyaman, Malatya, and Hatay, to identify eligible users. 

Binance acknowledged that POA may have limitations and inconsistencies. But it’s the most effective method to locate potentially affected individuals. The total donation is expected to be around $5 million.

Turkey Please make your donations consciously…

Cryptocurrencies have become an increasingly popular way to send funds during natural disasters, as they allow for quick, inexpensive, borderless, and transparent transactions. 

Binance has made a public donation address available through its Binance Charity and will convert all contributions to TRY and distribute them to a reputable NGO to aid those in need. Donations can be made in BTC, ETH, BNB, BUSD, and XRP through the Emergency Earthquake Appeal.
