A few minutes ago Erik Finman, a twenty-year-old who became a millionaire thanks to bitcoin, unveiled the launch of the Crypto Philanthropy Foundation.
Virgil Bellini, Operations Director of Metal Pay, commented on the news on Twitter:
“Metal Pay is dedicated to creating better futures for our users – but we aren’t satisfied with just being the best cryptocurrency platform. By creating the Philanthropic Arm of the Metal Foundation, we can directly give back to our users and improve their lives.”
The company started out with the aim of simplifying the purchase and sale of cryptocurrencies and now, thanks to the contribution of Erik Finman, they can expand the company in the philanthropy sphere, just as the CEO of Metal Pay, Marshall Hayer, said.
Metal Pay has made it easier for people to buy and sell crypto, an on-ramp to financial independence.
Now we’re taking it one step further by creating the Philanthropic Arm of the Metal Foundation.
We believe banking is not a privilege – but a fundament right.

In the long term, the foundation will devote itself, together with other partners in the crypto world, to providing financial support especially to projects that aim to eliminate financial difficulties: among the initiatives funded there is TrustToken, which provides support to people who can not afford the school education costs for their children.
