UNICEF Is Now Accepting Donations In Cryptocurrency
The French division of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reported that it has expanded the number of cryptocurrencies in which it can accept donations by adding Stellar and Ripple.
According to the Executive Director of UNICEF in France, Sebastian Lyon, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies offered the humanitarian world an opportunity that should not be missed, as they are “an innovation in terms of solidarity and fundraising”.
UNICEF’s decision to accept cryptocurrency donations comes a few months after the success of a campaign known as GameChaingers in February this year, where UNICEF launched an initiative to help children. The Initiative focuses on mining Ethereum. By the end of the campaign on March 31, 85 ETH had been mined. Subsequently, the funds earned with the help of crypto-mining were subsequently used to partially Finance charity projects for children of Syria.
The GameChaingers initiative proved to be in demand and so successful that the French division of UNICEF decided to expand the list of supported cryptocurrencies. Previously, they had included a Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dash, Monero and EOS. Now they added Ripple and Stellar.
Those who wish to participate in the GameChaingers initiative can send donations to one of the cryptocurrency wallets of UNICEF. You can also connect your computing power for collective mining of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero and Dash.
