Bill Pulte who has become famous for his act of generosity and philanthropy is considering giving away Bitcoin to people living in need in Africa.
Tweeting on December 19, Pulte announced: “Bitcoin could be given to many people in need in Africa and Quickly”. The statement points out the use case of fighting poverty, which is a topic that many Bitcoin “Maximalists” converse on. However, Visionary Financial recently reported that Pulte bought 11 bitcoins, and his followers gave him the nickname “Bitcoin Bill”.
As part of the philanthropist act, Pulte randomly selects people from its 1.7 million Twitter followers and offer them everything from cars to bitcoins. Pulte is a literal billionaire and is heir to the giant Pulte Group. He has recently seen actively giving away Satoshis and seems like a big fan of bitcoin. However, it is seen that the man has so far focused on the U.S., for his philanthropic efforts – this being said, Africa is the latest name in his list.
Nevertheless, on December 20, Pulte tweeted to a random twitter user whose account goes by name “StayBlessed” and writes, he has sent 0.0421BTC and said “he has sent Bitcoin for him/her to buy Christmas present for Homeless people.
Moreover, his Twitter bio reads that he is the “inventor of Twitter Philanthropy”. According to his view, the philanthropy in Bitcoin is to boost crypto adoption and to help those who are in need. By his twitter and social profiles, Pulte is an advocate of kindness – as he tweeted “holding the door for a stranger is something that doesn’t cost a cent. It’s kindness and thankfully it never runs out. Spread kindness people.”
Interestingly, Pulte openly asked his Twitter followers to comment on why they need Bitcoin – he would then pick one person to send Satoshis. He reassured quickly by noting “Yes this is real”. Pulte appeared to be fond of decentralization as he believes cryptocurrency helps the world’s poorest, especially those who are unbanked”. He concedes that due to this reason he wants to promote adoption.
