A mosque in East London embraced crypto donations with open arms. The decision was effective last March. Although, under Islamic guidelines, religious leaders still wonder if Bitcoin is halal.
This is four times as much opposed to traditional cash donations, proving that Bitcoin and Ethereum are relatively popular particularly among the members of the Islamic faith in London.
The mosque’s chairman Erkin Guney said:
“When the donations started to flow in, we were blown away. We received four times more in cryptocurrency donations than in cash from our local worshippers during Ramadan, and we are still receiving cryptocurrency Sadaqah [donations]. It is amazing!”
