The Pineapple Fund

As a result of the large price increase that we have seen in the past year, many early bitcoiners have undoubtedly become wealthy. But what to do with all that money? The anonymous bitcoin millionaire behind the Pineapple Fund does have an answer to that question.

More than 5,000 bitcoins to charities

Because once you have enough money, money doesn’t matter.

Under this motto, the anonymous donor behind the fund has announced that it will donate no less than 5,057 bitcoins to various charities! From the announcement on Reddit, it can be concluded that it concerns a person who has been active since the early years of Bitcoin, before a single bitcoin was worth $ 15. Why pineapple? Because the donor likes them.

When the announcement was made, bitcoins were worth about 72 million. At the moment the value is about 54 million, tomorrow it will be about 65 million again, and the next day it will certainly be about 80 million again (this is not investment advice!). That’s just the way it is with Bitcoin. In any case, it is clear that millions will go to various charities. A commendable use of the new wealth.
