Unicef, one of the most important and prominent humanitarian organizations, that has helped and is helping thousands of people around the world, has wholeheartedly accepted cryptocurrencies.
This acceptance is demonstrated by the implementation of the well-known browser-miner for Monero on one of their webpages. While we couldn’t confirm, the Hope Page most likely uses the Coin Hive mining software.
What this miner allows for is to use the browsers and computers of users visiting the page, to mine on the Monero blockchain, and produce profits for the website owner, in this case, Unicef.
Unicef is showing everybody how these browser miners should be used. The Pirate Bay and even CBS’s Showtime were caught doing the same thing and got punished for it.
So, what is different this time around?
Transparency! Unicef is upfront about what is happening on the website, and that is pretty much the only feature available there, apart from the ability to learn more about the process.
The funds raised will go to support Unicef Australia and their efforts to help children and mothers around the world, to protect their rights, and work on long-term projects that improve the social infrastructure of various countries and communities.
The Future of Charity
What Unicef is doing right now sets the pace for the future, and depending on the results of this campaign, other organizations may become open to this kind of fundraising.
Of course, there are many challenges to this kind of fundraising model, but at the same time the concept is unique and is taking advantage of the incredible technological and economic tools that are cryptocurrencies.
When implemented for the good of humankind, these tools can bring unprecedented results regarding charity, compassion, and collaboration.
From everyone here at Crypto-News.net, we wish the best of experiences for Unicef in their mission to help the world become a better place.
