Bitcoin has been slowly making ways in regards to being accepted for donations. Not just for political reasons, but also as a payment method for people in need. The Sierra Leone Liberty Group is currently raising funds and accepting Bitcoin as a payment method in order to help contain the Ebola virus from spreading to other countries.
The Ebola threat is a very precarious situation being monitored closely by every country in the world. With four African countries currently under lockdown, and around 1,400 casualties reported so far by the BBC, all possible measures need to be taken to keep this virus from spreading further.
