CoinBurp Sleep-out: CEO ‘sleeping rough’ for charity this Christmas

Peter Wood, CEO for CoinBurp, the cryptocurrency trading platform, will tonight be staying out on the streets of London, in a bid to raise money for an unnamed homeless charity this Christmas. The event will be recorded in a ‘survival documentary’ format to raise donations and awareness of the struggles of homeless people across the UK at this time of year.

CoinBurp will be posting regularly social media and video updates throughout the night via Instagram, and following up with an edited video of the full evening on the following day. Money will be raised in Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) during the event, and donations can be made on CoinBurp’s website, here. CoinBurp will be matching one per cent of all charitable donations.

They will also be matching one per cent of all investments made on its Crowdcube page throughout the event. This event is part of a wider campaign from CoinBurp and its CEO, Peter, who has already conducted a 12-hour livestream where he said the word ‘crypto’ 100,000 times, raising a total of £2,300.

Pete has also planned to provide warm food and clothes for homeless people (23rd December) and build a homeless shelter (January 6th). This campaign also serves to promote cryptocurrency as a viable option for future charity fundraising – as it offers a fast, secure and traceable method of money donation to those who will accept it.

Peter Wood, CEO, CoinBurp, said, “This Christmas, far too many people will be sleeping rough in freezing temperatures, with many going without proper meals and the crypto community should be tackling this problem head-on.

He continued, “This charity stunt will hopefully open the eyes of the public, and increase awareness of the struggles many homeless people have to face on a full-time basis this Christmas. Investors and people who associate with cryptocurrency should see this event as an opportunity to come together, make donations, and do their part to ease some of the hardships of the homeless problem this Christmas.

“When we initially set out to plan this charity campaign, we struggled to get a charity on board who would even associate themselves with cryptocurrency, which has a reputation tarnished by bad press despite its growing popularity and potential function as an alternate method of meaningful fundraising.”
