Tragedy Strikes Türkiye
On February 6, 2023, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck southern Türkiye near the border of northern Syria. The tragedy was compounded by a second 7.5 magnitude earthquake nine hours later, followed by aftershocks resulting in the loss of countless lives and leaving many others injured.
Invitation To The Global Crypto Community
In support of victims, OKX has launched a web campaign that invites individuals globally to contribute and aid those affected by this disaster. All contributions will be converted into Turkish Lira with Paymount at 4pm GMT daily and then transferred to AHBAP and AFAD at 4:30pm GMT who will use this money to provide necessary medical aid, food, water, shelter, and reconstruction supplies.
Potential Cryptocurrency Use For Humanitarian Purposes
The campaign highlights the potential of cryptocurrency being used not only as an investment but also as a means to unite people from all over the world for a common cause like providing relief efforts during times of need or disasters such as earthquakes or pandemics.
