Bill Pulte Promises To Give Bitcoin To People In Africa To Alleviate Poverty
The Detroit real estate giant PulteGroup’s heir, Bill Pulte, who became famous by dashing out hundreds of thousands of dollars to strangers on Twitter, is big on Bitcoin and believes it could be used to fight poverty in Africa.
When it comes to Bitcoin, many perceive it as a means to provide financial freedom from governments and other regulators. However, few like Bill Pulte, see Bitcoin as a tool that can be used to fight poverty. Bill Pulte, believes the world’s largest cryptocurrency is the most efficient thing/asset to give to those in need.
The initiator of the Twitter Philanthropy movement, Pulte randomly selects people in desperate need of help through his 1.7 million Twitter followers and gives them everything from cars to Bitcoins.
Before now, most of Pulte’s philanthropic efforts were focused on the U.S., but he now wants to give more of his money to Africa. According to Pulte’s Tweet,
“In addition to America and other countries, I feel like giving some Bitcoin to people in Africa … Bitcoin could be given to many people in need in Africa and QUICKLY! Time to start thinking outside the box and using Twitter to help everyone … or as many as we can!”
