On Nov. 6, Beam announced they now accept bitcoin donations.

“We just couldn’t stand the fact that over 15% of the money [people] were sending to Sierra Leone to help their country was being spent on transaction fees,” said CEO Nikunj Handa.

Beam is a small team based in Accra, Ghana using Bitcoin technology to allow Africans to remit money, cheaply and instantly.

The company uses the donated money to raise funds for charities fighting the Ebola crisis in neighboring Sierra Leone.
