UNICEF France has announced that it now accepts cryptocurrencies as donations. Guided by the need to expand the number of donors, the humanitarian body will now take nine cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Stellar, Litecoin, Monero, and Dash through your web site.
With the exception of coins, which are not subject to mining, namely, Ripple, EOS and Stellar, well-wishers can also donate your computing power, having produced the remaining six of the cryptocurrency directly into the wallets of the UNICEF in France.
According to the Executive Director of UNICEF France, Sebastian Lyon, Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies offer humanitarian world of opportunity that should not stay away because they are “innovation in terms of solidarity and fundraising”.
UNICEF’s decision of France to accept donations in the cryptocurrency comes a few months after the success of the campaign, known as GameChaingers, in February of this year when the global body UNICEF launched an initiative to assist children in the military of Syria. The initiative was focused on the extraction of Ethereum, and all interested donors had to install software for mining Claymore. By the time when the campaign ended, March 31, 85 ETH was produced.
