The crypto community continues to help fight the coronavirus outbreak, with Binance Charity donating new batches of medical supplies to hospitals and disease control command centers.

On March 9, it has been reported that Binance Charity announced the completion of the second phase of its philanthropic initiative dubbed “Binance for Wuhan,” wherein the company gave 6 new batches of medical supplies to 130 hospitals, medical teams, and disease control command centers. 

However, the shipment included protective suits from Israel and the United Arab Emirates, oxygen machines, gloves, and protective goggles.

In February alone, an array of cryptocurrency and blockchain-related companies contributed to combating the virus. Tech startup FUZAMEI rolled out a blockchain-based platform designed to improve the transparency and efficiency of charity and medical data sharing.

Likewise, Krypital, the blockchain firm, launched a charity donation effort to acquire medical supplies for Wuhan coronavirus victims.

Also, Hyperchain, the China-based high-tech firm, announced the development of a blockchain platform geared to transparency and traceability of donations related to the coronavirus epidemic.

In the same month (February), the Chinese government quarantined used banknotes in an effort to stop the spread of the virus. The authorities asked local banks to provide individuals with new banknotes if possible.

It has been analyzed that the fuss around the coronavirus epidemic has led people around the world to set sights on digital currencies, as the search term “Bitcoin coronavirus” overtook “Bitcoin halving” on Google Trends, with the most traffic in Europe.

However, while investors around the world are struggling to find safe-haven assets, some industry experts do not see cryptocurrencies as a suitable option.

Campbell Harvey, a Professor of International Business at Duke University, said:

“When you start talking about safe haven, it becomes really difficult to think are these really safe-haven assets because it’s just not obvious.”

Thus, Harvey suggested that much of the value that is attributed to cryptocurrencies is essentially speculative.
