Find answers to common questions on the donation initiative to help people affected by the crisis in Ukraine, in support of the Red Cross Red Crescent.

Mar 25, 2022

Where does my donation go?

Your donation* will help the Red Cross Red Crescent to provide assistance to people affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and impacted countries. The funds will be used to provide first aid, psychosocial support, food, medicine, shelter and other essential items.

The Red Cross Red Crescent is the world’s largest humanitarian network. The Ukrainian Red Cross Society and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) were already working in Ukraine prior to the recent escalation in the conflict. Meanwhile in neighbouring countries, with the support of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), local Red Cross teams are providing care and support to people who have fled the violence. And now, when an emergency is too severe for local support systems to respond, the Red Cross Red Crescent teams from around the world have been mobilised to provide additional support.

* In relation to donations through NFT purchases (see questions 6 and 7), this refers to 100% of the primary NFT sale.

Is there a cap on the donations that Crypto.com will match?

Yes, up to USD 1 million, and on donations made from 25 March 10:00 UTC to 31 March 23:59 UTC.

Can I donate in cryptocurrency?

Yes. Crypto donations can be made via https://crypto.com/donate and will be converted to fiat currency (see question 4 for details) before being transferred to the Red Cross Red Crescent.

How will my crypto donation be handled before transferring to the Red Cross Red Crescent?

Your cryptocurrency donation will be converted to TUSD (or such other cryptocurrency as may be) after each successful donation to avoid fluctuation risks in the value of the donated cryptocurrency, and then be converted from TUSD to EUR after the campaign period.

Are there any transaction fees with Crypto.com Pay for this donation?
