According to the blog post, with various humanitarian efforts, there has been a decrease in the number of newly infected cases and an increase in the number of patients cured. Progress has been made in the battle against the virus, although the war is not yet over and Binance Charity has promised to continue to be a helping hand until the situation is under total control.


As previously reported by Blockchain.News, Syren Johnstone said that a private blockchain network would “enable the recording and tracking of anything that is donated, from donation dollars to N95 masks.” By holding the person or organization accountable, donations for delivery could be tracked from the donor all the way to its final-use. Blockchain would also enable transparency for the general public to understand how their donations have been used and its progress. While a private blockchain is strictly controlled, it can also allow for public transparency for donors and donees, as well as authorities.
