Unicef Introduces Monero Crypto-Mining Donation Method

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child.UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families.It believes that “All children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.” The organization works to improve the policies and services that protect all children.

“We wanted to leverage new emerging technologies to raise awareness about current humanitarian crises and raise funds to support children caught up in them,” Jennifer Tierney, Unicef Australia director of fundraising and communications, said.

Approximately 1,700 people are currently presenting their CPU processing power to The Hopepage mining page, where they proceed to mine for as long as they continue on the site. The Hopepage wants to turn a little computer power into hope for every child. When a person is on the Hopepage, the web browser uses his computer’s processor to solve cryptocurrency algorithms. The longer a user stays on the page and the more processor power he/she donates, the more algorithms get answered, which earns cryptocurrency. Mining is perfectly safe for users’ computer. Coinhive powers the initiative. It offers a JavaScript miner for the Monero Blockchain

The cryptocurrency is automatically donated to UNICEF Australia and is turned into real funds that reach children through life-saving supplies like safe water, therapeutic food, and vaccines. Unicef has started this as an experimental project, and traditional donation methods will be available to donors who are passionate about children safety and well being.
