Kraken is matching donations to Coin Center up to $1 million

An unprecedented act of support at our annual dinner.

The Coin Center Annual Dinner was a huge success. We were thrilled to see so many members of the cryptocurrency community come out to support Coin Center’s policy advocacy mission. It was the biggest dinner yet and we will surely have to get even more space for next year.

We also had the opportunity to make a surprise announcement:

Cryptocurrency exchange Kraken has donated $1 million to Coin Center, which is easily the largest single contribution we have received to date.

Kraken’s generosity does not stop there. They have pledged to match any donations made to Coin Center in the rest of May up to an additional 1 million dollars.

These contributions will go a long way to helping us gear up for the increased attention to cryptocurrencies here in DC. So, if you’ve been thinking about donating to Coin Center, now is the time. Your money will go twice as far.
