We make giving crypto easy and impactful
Effective Crypto offers expert-advised bundles of high-impact donation options that can be 100x more effective than typical charities. The crypto community has the potential to do incredible good. Help lead the way!

Our philosophy: Effective Altruism
Effective Crypto and our donation process was designed according to the philosophy of effective altruism: an impact-focused approach to charity that uses evidence and reason to do the most good. There are too many problems in the world and we have a limited amount of money, time, and other resources. In order to improve the world as much as we can, we must focus on the most promising solutions to the most pressing problems.
To learn more, check out this Crypto and Effective Altruism panel event hosted by FTX last year. Some of the biggest names in crypto and effective altruism, including Sam Bankman-Fried and Vitalik Buterin, discuss the impact the crypto community can achieve with its giving.
Help us build a norm of effective giving as the crypto community grows!
