On this New Year’s Eve, which was supposed to be a national celebration, we ushered in one bad news after another-the number of deaths caused by the new coronavirus is increasing day by day; countless medical teams are going to Wuhan to support them. The raging and lack of medical materials make this supposedly beautiful city suddenly become a “city of fear” in people’s hearts. People all over the world are affected by these earth-shattering news and sleepless all night. In order to help the people of Wuhan to get out of the haze more quickly and overcome the disease, Krypital Group has joined the industry and institutions to launch a charity donation of “Wuhan and surrounding cities medical supplies donation”! In this event, as the initiator of this charity event, we will gather the strength of the blockchain industry as much as possible to raise funds for Wuhan and purchase scarce medical supplies. At the same time, we will also take advantage of our industry, the blockchain technology industry, to create a donation system based on the blockchain wallet to ensure that each transaction process is transparent, the task is responsible and efficient.
