by | Oct 4, 2022

In July 2022 Deepak Thapliyal, the CEO of chain-built cryptographic ledger systems Chain, made a generous Ethereum (ETH) donation to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank through The Giving Block, valued at $100,000 at the time of giving. The six-figure donation greatly helped the food bank in its mission to eliminate hunger during a time of year when the nonprofit organization’s services are needed the most.

This single act of generosity from a crypto donor provided funding for hundreds of thousands of meals for the Chattanooga community, where one in six individuals don’t know where their next meal will come from.
