Partnership Case Studies

Gemini: Matching Gifts for “Bitcoin Pizza Day”

In 2020, Gemini partnered with The Giving Block to support frontline workers and children in need. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day (an annual celebration of the first purchase using Bitcoin, two pizzas, held on May 22), Gemini raised over $40,000 with Flexa and Taxbit for two nonprofits, No Kid Hungry and Slice Out Hunger.

In addition, Gemini worked with Slice Out Hunger and Papa Johns to donate pizza to frontline workers in New York who were battling against COVID-19.

Brave: Ad Grants for Charity

The Giving Block has worked with Brave since 2019 on their Brave Ad Grants program, which gives selected crypto-friendly nonprofits access to free ad space on the Brave Browser. The ad space has included sponsored images viewed by Brave’s 13.9 million monthly average users and is valued at $160k per day.

In 2020, Brave and Nexo, a digital finance lending institution, partnered with Save the Children and The Giving Block for Nexo’s “Campaign with a Cause”. Save the Children was featured as part of Brave’s Sponsored Image feature, giving millions of users the ability to donate Basic Attention Token (BAT) directly to the nonprofit. As a result, Nexo raised and donated $25,000 USD to Save the Children in addition to its ad spend, making a direct impact on the lives of thousands of children.
