Bill Pulte, the heir to the Detroit real estate giant PulteGroup who gained popularity by giving 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, most highlight its ability to provide financial freedom from governments and other regulators. Few, however, see Bitcoin as a tool that can be used to fight poverty. Bill Pulte, believes the world’s largest cryptocurrency is the most efficient way to give to those in need.
The creator 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 satoshis.
“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!”
