Based on the balance of wallets converted to AUD using CoinMarketCap and Google Finance data
Australia is in the grips of an ongoing bushfire emergency. We're challenging the global crypto community to unite and help out, and raise funds quickly to help fight those fires.
Cryptocurrency funds raised will be converted into AUD and donated equally between the NSW Rural Fire Service Association (RFSA), Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fund and WIRES.
Help support firefighting and disaster relief efforts by donating cryptocurrency to one of the wallet addresses below.
As always, please double-check that you have entered the correct address before transferring any funds.

We care about Australia and our community. Cryptocurrencies make it possible to raise funds globally to offer assistance during major disasters, while massively reducing transaction fees. This means more money goes straight to the cause, no matter where you donate from.
Finder, in partnership with HiveEx, is in the fortunate position of being able to leverage the market strength and unique executional capability of our businesses to help the cryptocurrency community help raise funds to fight against the bushfires. We're grateful to all our partners who are helping to promote this effort.

HiveEx will collect cryptocurrency donations on behalf of the nominated charities and organisations, and process and deliver those donations in Australian dollars to the nominated charities and organisations. By donating, you acknowledge the volatility of cryptocurrencies, whose value can go down as well as up. The fiat equivalent value of a cryptocurrency donation may change by the time it is received by the intended recipient.
HiveEx is registered as a Digital Currency Exchange with AUSTRAC and can lawfully exchange cryptocurrencies to fiat in Australia. Donations will be converted by HiveEx, the largest over-the-counter volume trading desk in Australia, which is part of the Finder group.
HiveEx will take no fees for the exchange of cryptocurrency to fiat. It is possible that transfers of AUD to the bank account(s) of the charities and organisations will incur the usual bank transfer fees which will be deducted from the amount transferred.
The value of the cryptocurrency gift will depend on the conversation rate we achieve. We will use our experience and we will act in good faith to obtain the best conversion rate that we can. Donations will be held on trust for the relevant cause and processed as soon as practical. Larger quantities of cryptocurrencies will attract better exchange rates than smaller quantities.
Any donation received cannot be refunded. We do not issue receipts for donations. We will treat all donations received as being anonymous. If you wish to otherwise record a large donation, prior to sending any cryptocurrency, please contact us at email@example.com
We will publish records of donations throughout the campaign.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
