BitPay Under Fire For Rejecting $100K Bitcoin Amazon Rainforest Donation

{excerpt}
A blocked Bitcoin donation to help the fight against the Amazon Rainforest fires has become the latest publicity headache for BitPay.
According to a social media exchange on August 23, the embattled cryptocurrency payment processor is facing fresh criticism after it failed to allow a $100,000 Bitcoin donation to go through.

         The payment came from a donor to the Amazon Watch charity, which uses BitPay to accept cryptocurrency payments.

   “…You don’t need (BitPay) to reject your transactions when you can verify them yourselves for free,”

Angela Merkel has backed Emmanuel Macron’s call to put the fires in the Amazon on the agenda at this weekend’s G7 summit, after the French president said the situation amounted to an international crisis.

Steffen Seibert, a spokesman for the German chancellor, told journalists in Berlin on Friday: “The extent of the fires in the Amazon area is shocking and threatening, not only for Brazil and the other affected countries, but also for the whole world.

Is BitShares poised to take advantage of this event being at the top of the G7 Agenda....THIS WEEKEND --  24TH AUGUST 2019

Suppose a group of celebrities wanted to donate a $1 million to pay for the leasing costs of water carrying air tankers
and remain "somewhat" anonymous by donating via BTC and .....BITPAY said, NO!! 

Could BitShares come to the rescue..?

Suppose 10,000 people were so upset with what is happening and they wanted to donate $100 each right NOW via crypto currency and not have to be bothered with all of the KYC hassle?

Is BitShares positioned to construct the global NETWORK EFFECT it obviously needs...and benefit from a BLACK SWAN?

There certain kinds of publicity that NO MONEY CAN BUY....

BTS supporters, workers, gateways investors, developers..help the world and help yourselves...

Under ordinary circumstances there maybe some reticence to trust a cryptocurrency ...but now urgency will motivate skeptics to give BTS a deeper and more fair look...

The G7 meeting is in France...(Does BBF have Euro contacts?) there will be lots of media attention and groups gathered there..72 HOURS !

Can maybe the BBF, as the ONLY LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE of BITSHARES, reach out to Amazon Watch and other organizations and offer to be an alternative to BitPay.?   
Show them why decentralization is a solution

Maybe simply an email with contact info and  with links explaining BitShares..

{this webpage.. needs to be updated to reflect the new MCR = 1.5 ...not 1.75}

Speaking of being prepared...

I wish a link existed to a 5 minute Youtube or Vimeo or Dtube video....showing how to sign up with BTS with a webwallet
  &..how to buy some BTS and how to produce a (MPA) smartcoin for any fiat currency  e.g..bitREAL (Brazilian currency)...etc.

Translated into all the major languages..&. plaster all over social media...during this weekend's  G7 summit

FYI
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_rainforest

   The lungs of the planet....produces 20% of earth's oxygen

The Amazon rainforest lies in nine South American countries: Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Guyana, Bolivia, Suriname and French Guiana//
The Amazon rainforest contains approximately 10 percent of all animal species on Earth and 20 percent of the world's birds.
Thousands of insects live within the borders of the Amazon as do larger mammals and reptiles, such as jaguars, anacondas and cougars.. 
{And so many more yet to be discovered and catalogued}.... To quote some wise person,

"We are burning down the library before even having read the books.."
