Bitso, the Mexican cryptocurrency exchange, has partnered with Donadora, the Mexican crowdfunding platform, to launch a crypto-based COVID-19-related donation system, as the platform will help gather funds to buy food for the most vulnerable families affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

However, donation options include both fiat currencies and various cryptos, such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) and XRP.
