ROLDA work for animals is
humane and responsible
focused on animal welfare principles
Helping animals is why ROLDA was born.
And ROLDA is my whole life!
“I started this charity in my 20′ and I see it growing healthy. From a 3k $ budget, we grew every year more. We are not as big as I wished, after 15 years but we are stronger and have supporters on 3 continents. ROLDA is my life and everything I am dreaming of. I hope we will be able to build a modern adoption center where the local community to feel safe to adopt rescued dogs and cats. This adoption center will be part of a much larger project which will include sanctuary for working animals retired (donkeys, horses) and other small farm animals. The whole project is estimated to cost approx 2 million EUR which looks like close to impossible dream but maybe the power of crypto coins will transform it into reality faster.
Dana Costin, Founder of ROLDA
As cryptocurrencies become more widely used, so has their resulting carbon footprint, due to the energy required to generate electricity for transactions. As part of an ongoing sustainability review at ROLDA, we are currently exploring alternative cryptocurrencies with a lower environmental impact. ROLDA will regularly review raising funds through cryptocurrencies and update our policy when lower impact technologies are developed using sustainable energy sources. Any updates to our cryptocurrency donations policy will be published on this website.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is ROLDA accepting crypto currencies?
Bitcoin and other crypto currencies are an innovative new kind of currency and we believe that accepting these will result in donations we may not otherwise receive, as well as connecting us with new types of supporters. The cryptocurrency community has a lot of innovative ideas and we want to connect with you more directly. If you have a use case, idea or want to partner with us, please reach out by email@example.com. Also, from our research into future trends, it looks likely that we will receive digital currency as a donation and/or as part of a legacy at some point and we want to be prepared for that eventuality.
Is my cryptocurrency donation tax deductible?
The IRS classifies cryptocurrency donations as property, meaning they are not subject to capital gains tax and are tax-deductible. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. For example, for donors from the United States, the IRS has classified Bitcoin as property for tax purposes. This means that when you donate Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit like ROLDA USA, you do not have to pay capital gains tax and it is tax-deductible if you provide your email address. Please consult your tax advisor. You can donate anonymously but you will not receive a tax receipt.
Buying cryptocurrency (eg. GBP → BTC): There are no taxes on buying crypto in the UK, or even holding it for as long as you want. You should still keep records of these transactions so that you can deduct the costs when you eventually sell them. Crypto taxation in the UK If you’re a crypto trader in the UK, you are obliged to pay capital gains tax or income tax depending on the crypto activities you undertake.
Australian Tax Agency (ATO) has issued official guidance stating that cryptocurrency is taxed as a capital gains asset which means you have to pay tax every time you trade, sell or use crypto to pay for goods/items.
Many EU member-states have their own cryptocurrency tax models.
For example, Germany (if under 600 Euro) and Slovenia don’t tax Bitcoin transactions, except for VAT. Malta has become a haven for cryptocurrency transactions due to its policy to not charge income or gain taxes on isolated transfers. Only crypto exchanges are taxed, falling under the general corporate income tax rate of 35%. Portugal is another EU nation without specific cryptocurrency taxation laws. On the other hand, Romania charges a 10% tax on all cryptocurrency earnings above 126 Euro annually.
