Covid has India in a tight grip. A devastating second wave, or rather tsunami, is flooding big cities, towns and villages. Hospitals are overrun and there is acute shortage of ICU units, oxygen, food, drugs like remdesivir and more.
Sandeep Nailwal and the Crypto Relief Fund
To help India fight this Covid emergency, Sandeep Nailwal – co-founder of Polygon (previous Matic Network) – has started the India Crypto Relief Fund. It’s a community-run fund with one mission only: To reduce suffering by providing healthcare and essentials to those fighting for survival against Covid.
