The non-profit organization Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI), which studies potential hazards of artificial intelligence, published data on donations collected in December last year. As it turned out, 66% of the funds were received in the crypto currency, Bitcoin.com reports.

66% of the funds donated during the campaign were in the cryptocurrency (mostly Bitcoin and Ethereum). The largest transfer came in the end - $ 763,970 in Ether from Vitalik Buterin. This was the third largest donation in the history of the organization after a $ 1.25 million grant from the Open Philanthropy Project in October and $ 1.01 million in Ethereum in May.

It should be noted that the main goal of MIRI is to create a secure artificial intelligence, as well as to study the potential dangers and opportunities that may arise when creating AI. The organization has representative offices in the USA and Canada.

The total amount of MIRI donations in December 2017 was $ 2,515,148 - twice the initial target of $ 1.25 million.
