Vitalik Buterin just donated $54M (in ETH) to GiveWell

Also important to note that he still has $9bn in Shibu coins left and some more in others.. might not be over. And Covid India prob will get $50-100m+ out of it given the liquidity of Shibu. 
 

The case for investing to give later

Fantastic initiative! One potentially interesting approach could also be to invest in strongly EA aligned startups (pathogen detection, ai safety etc.). Basically like GoodVentures investments with a stronger focus on investing and donating much later.

Could also entail funding something like Jade Leung’ long-termist project incubator or something similar to a 100% EA aligned YCombinator or EntrepreneurFirst. This could become the go-to for EAs who want to start a for-profit venture but also want to enrich a fund that is completely aligned with their vision.

Basically a ea-aligned longtermist rolling fund that can make both for-profit investments and non-profit donations.
