We are pleased to announce we’ve made a US$50,000 donation to Brink, a non-profit organisation that exists to strengthen the Bitcoin protocol and network through fundamental research and development. In the past four years BitMEX has awarded close to US$2 million in funding to support open source Bitcoin development. At Brink their team support the Bitcoin developer community through funding, education, and mentoring. The development work they do is crucial to ensure Bitcoin remains secure and robust. And while the lack of a coin offering helps ensure Bitcoin’s monetary integrity, continued open source development is still required to ensure Bitcoin can succeed and prosper.
