Cryptocurrency Philanthropy Whitepaper
Cryptocurrency has become a catalyst for innovation because the attributes that make digital assets great for remittance and e-commerce are the same properties that make them attractive to both charities and the philanthropists such as:
  •  Low payment processing fees
  •  Efficient, borderless transfers to charities all over the world
  • A high degree of anonymity—an important factor for many donors
  •  Transparency, which helps track donations

The desire of nonprofits to attract cryptocurrency donors is driving new technical solutions and promotion strategies beyond placing “Donate Crypto” buttons on platforms.
