GoFundMe Crowdfunding Campaign Removed Due To Bitcoin Address Listing
GoFundMe does not operate in some countries, nor do they let Africans withdraw funds from the platform.
Bitcoin remains a topic of substantial debate and lots of opposition. Despite the advantages cryptocurrency offers when it comes to crowdfunding, very few platform shave integrated cryptocurrency support. GoFundMe suspended a campaign which had a Bitcoin address listed, as it allegedly violated their terms of service.
GoFundMe Doesn’t Like Bitcoin
It has to be said; crowdfunding platforms do not take kindly to Bitcoin. If they did, companies such as Indiegogo and Kickstarter would have added support ages ago. Despite that, some campaigns will try to sneak in a Bitcoin donation address. For a recent campaign on GoFundMe, that strategy resulted in getting their project suspended from the website.
