TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MLG Blockchain, an expert blockchain consulting and development firm, is pleased to announce that it has launched the first crypto wallet for Sinai Health Foundation, which is now accepting donations of Bitcoin. The launch of the crypto wallet is timed to coincide with the Sinai Soiree fundraiser on June 21.
Funds from the Sinai Soiree will benefit the redevelopment of the Schwartz/Reisman Emergency Centre (the Centre) at Mount Sinai Hospital, part of Sinai Health System. The Centre sees 60,000 patients each year – twice as many as the space was designed to accommodate. To create leading-edge facilities that meet this unprecedented demand and respond to the complex needs of patients, the hospital is completely rethinking and rebuilding the Centre. More and more, the Centre is caring for people with addiction issues and mental health challenges, including severe depression and anxiety. The Centre will also house a new Behavioural Unit, which will help provide immediate and appropriate care in a private space for patients with addiction issues and mental health challenges.
“Sinai Health Foundation strongly believes that giving should be made easy and that we should be aligned with current marketplace trends. Accepting Bitcoin is just one of the many new ways we are facilitating donations,” said Louis de Melo, Chief Executive Officer of Sinai Health Foundation.

“MLG Blockchain is energized by the prospect of creating similar philanthropic initiatives in the blockchain space,” said Cyrus Montazemi, Manager of Enterprise Strategy at MLG Blockchain. “Our representatives will join other young entrepreneurs, philanthropists and generous donors at the Globe and Mail Centre to toast Sinai Health Foundation and step up for the patients in need in our Toronto community.”
