We are aware that Turkey experienced a devastating earthquake two days ago. Binance has decided to airdrop 100 BNB to Binance users still alive in Turkey as a response to the devastation caused by the recent earthquake.
Two earthquakes struck Syria and Turkey’s south on February 6. More than 5,000 people were killed and many were injured. At 4.17 a.m., the first earthquake of 7.8 magnitude struck. However, the effects were felt as far away as Cyprus and Cairo.
The damage is quite extensive, and it will take a very long time for people to recover their lives. Global leaders are rushing to assist the most impacted individuals at this critical moment. Turkey has been reached by international rescue teams to assist the survivors.
Companies and individuals all over the world are contributing to the effort to assist the affected population and region.
It will take place in ten cities where the earthquake has had a significant impact, but proof of address (POA) will be used to identify survivors who are most affected by the tragedy. This must be done by February 6th. Kilis, Kahramanmaras, Diyarbakir, Adana, Osmaniye, Adiyaman, Malatya, Gaziantep, Sanliurfa, and Hatay are among the cities.
As a result, the POA is the most effective approach for potentially identifying affected users. despite its flaws and shortcomings. As a result, the total amount donated will be approximately $5 million, or 94,000,000 TRY.
However, natural disasters frequently result in people losing access to traditional banking. Just in time when they require additional funds to cover things like clothing, medical supplies, and food.
Additionally, crypto transfers are increasingly being utilized to provide disaster victims with financial assistance. because they provide transactions that are quick, inexpensive, borderless, and transparent.
Because this is one of Binance’s greatest acts of kindness toward the survivors. Additionally, Binance charity has set up a public donation address where anyone can make a donation. The things or necessities that people adore donating will be converted directly into TRY and given to an authorized NGO to assist those in need. BTC, BNB, ETH, BUSD, and XRP will be used to transfer donations to the Emergency Earthquake Appeal.
