Vitalik Buterin and Polygon founder give $100 million to COVID-19 research

The research on “Long COVID” can get a huge boost thanks to Vitalik Buterin and Sandeep Nailwal, the co-founder of Polygon. The gentlemen are planning to release $ 100 million for research into the consequences of COVID-19.

Total of 200 million dollars

It is not the first time Buterin has been so generous when it comes to COVID-19. Last year, he and several others also raised $ 100 million for research into the nasty disease.

Now Buterin and Sandeep have come to the conclusion that these projects have a lot of value and for that reason the two decided to make an additional $ 100 million available.

With the research, Buterin and Sandeep want to ensure, among other things, that the spread of COVID-19 through the air is less rapid. Furthermore, the focus of the research is on “Long COVID.” This is about people who are still low in energy for a long time after they have had COVID-19 because of the disease.

Good for the industry

It’s good for the industry that guys like Buterin and Sandeep manage their funds in this way. This ensures that the world looks at crypto with a more positive view again. Many people also associate crypto with the part of society that does not believe in vaccinations, so it may also be useful to show this side of the coin.

Not everyone is the same within the crypto industry and a lot of good things are being organized as well. Certainly Vitalik Buterin always seems to be very active in the field of charities.

The war in Ukraine has also been a subject on which he regularly spoke and for which he also released considerable funds.

Buterin believes it is important to send money to COVID-19 research, because he believes there is still a significant risk of a new acute outbreak. This research can also help prevent other pandemics or nip them in the bud sooner.
