Bitcon gifts result in changes to fidelity charity- Boston Herald
“We have a mission to make giving simple and effective.” Nash said the move was prompted in part by requests to make donations in bitcoin.
One of the attractive aspects of bitcoin can be its anonymity and the fact that it is practically impossible to trace.
But, Nash said, that will not be an issue because Fidelity requires a Social Security number and registration in order to give.
Donors may decide to make their gifts in bitcoin, Nash said, because it may have tax benefits.
Fidelity Charitable is the charity arm of Fidelity Investments, and has given more than $20 billion in grants since its inception, the organization said.
