As per a government source quoted by local Finnish media organisation Helsingin Sanomat, there is no legal framework in Finland to make donations of this special type. Due to this, if the Bitcoins are first converted to cash and then donated, several additional bureaucratic and legal processes will follow, which will only delay the entire process further. And due to this delay, the actual donation size could shrink due to market price fluctuations of Bitcoin.
