BitGive Launches GiveTrack

Santiago, Chile — December 5, 2018 — BitGive, the first Bitcoin 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has announced the launch of GiveTrack 1.0, the latest version of the flagship Bitcoin donation platform designed to enhance transparency in the donation process and empower donors to give more through direct, evidence-based reporting. Launched at the Latin American Bitcoin and Blockchain Conference in Santiago, Chile, GiveTrack 1.0 offers numerous technical upgrades from the beta product, including a brand new technology stack and easy onboarding for donors and nonprofits. In tandem with the launch, BitGive is announcing a Global Bitcoin Fundraiser in support of the four new nonprofits available on the GiveTrack platform.

The participating nonprofits include:

  • Code to Inspire — Code to Inspire (CTI) is the first coding academy for girls in Herat, Afghanistan. CTI has given more than 150 female students the skills and confidence to code, build apps, and generate work opportunities for themselves. Code to Inspire is fundraising to provide their 2019 class of students with updated computers, faster and more modern equipment, as well as upgrading the Internet connection and speed to maximize productivity and enhance the learning process.

  • Desafio Levantemos Chile — Desafio Levantemos Chile funds projects throughout Chile through microfinance, in which beneficiaries are empowered to play a lead role in managing and sustaining their own solutions. Desafio plans to provide more than 390 low-income children with sports equipment, providing an alternative sporting outlet so they will have a higher likelihood of staying away from crime and drugs and will also have a greater chance of being successful.

  • America Solidaria — America Solidaria works directly on social projects with the poorest and most underprivileged communities in the Americas, dedicated to improving quality of life.  Specifically, America Solidaria is raising funds to develop leadership skills among youth between ages 10-24 to become agents of social change and rebels with a cause (Concausa) that address the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

  • Run for Water — Run for Water addresses the clean water crisis in Africa by providing access to clean water in local communities of Ethiopia.  The nonprofit is raising funds to bring the community of Waraba, Ethiopia, an underground fresh water spring for clean water. The local community of 2,175 people currently uses the local river as a source of water for both humans and animals, causing serious water borne illnesses, particularly in children.

Connie Gallippi, Founder and Executive Director of BitGive, said: “One of BitGive’s core missions has always been to leverage the potential of Bitcoin and blockchain technology for more than just simple transactions and to build products that can actually make a real difference. With GiveTrack 1.0, we’re providing a legitimate use case for the technology — utilizing the unique benefits of Bitcoin and blockchain, such as speed, transparency and security, to revolutionize the donation process. We’re hoping that the launch of GiveTrack 1.0 and the initiation of our Global Bitcoin Fundraiser will empower the global Bitcoin community to unite and give back to worthy causes this holiday season.”

As part of the campaign’s goal to encourage corporate donors to give $5K or 1 bitcoin (#Give1BTC) this holiday season, RSK, the creator of the first Bitcoin smart contract, has announced it will kickstart the campaign with a generous donation in the amount of $5,000. In addition, Bloq, a leading blockchain innovation company, has also announced a $5,000 campaign donation. These donations will be spread evenly across all of the participating nonprofits, and will help jumpstart each on meeting their fundraising goals.

Diego Gutierrez-Zaldivar, RSK/RIF Labs CEO, said: “We believe in BitGive’s value proposition to put Bitcoin and blockchain technologies to the service of charitable initiatives. Making the donation process easier, and more importantly transparent, is a great contribution to making the world better; and we are very excited that they have chosen the RSK Smart Contract Network to build this innovative technology.”

GiveTrack offers unprecedented transparency in the donation process, giving donors the ability to trace transactions on a public platform in real time. Donors can see exactly how their funds are spent and ensure they reach their final destination. In addition to an entirely new framework, GiveTrack 1.0 offers multi-signature bitcoin wallet security and smart contracts that leverage RSK technology. GiveTrack also provides donors with direct evidence-based reporting for their donations through milestones.

Peg Peters, Executive Director at Run for Water, said: “We are very honored to be working with Connie and the entire team at BitGive. We’re delighted to expand to a global and digital network that is excited to use technology and innovation as a force for social impact. We’re proud to be a member of this new launch for GiveTrack and are looking forward to being part of this revolution for philanthropy!”

Fereshteh Forough, Founder and CEO of Code to Inspire, added: “We look forward to working with BitGive, as we see Bitcoin and blockchain technologies having a bright future in philanthropy. By utilizing the GiveTrack platform, we’re able to target a network of charitable donors in the cryptocurrency space, which will give us greater opportunity to achieve our broader goals.”

GiveTrack 1.0 will go live today and is available for donations at https://www.givetrack.org/.

Bitcoin DCA Platform

Bristol, United Kingdom, May 20, 2020 — Bitcoin DCA platform Vimba has reached 10,000 customers following the company’s expansion into the UK and Europe last year. 3,000 new users joined in 2020 leading up to the Bitcoin halving.

New Zealand-based Vimba was founded in 2014 by early bitcoin adopter, Sam Blackmore, with the mission to bring bitcoin into the hands of as many people as possible. Today, Vimba enables investors in 30 countries to buy, sell, and auto-invest in bitcoin in a simple, hassle-free manner.

VimbaMoreover, Vimba is the only bitcoin DCA platform that enables investors to dollar-cost average BTC directly into cold storage, which adds an unprecedented level of security to auto-investors. Alternatively, users can also store their digital currency in the platform’s built-in non-custodial crypto wallets, which is the preferred option for most first-time bitcoin investors.

Thanks to its user-friendly service and customer-centric approach, Vimba has been able to turn thousands of New Zealanders into bitcoiners. Now, the company seeks to turn more bitcoin-curious investors into bitcoiners in its new markets.

Founder and CEO Sam Blackmore comments: “We set out to build a platform that enabled Kiwis to save small amounts of bitcoin on a weekly basis. The aim was to give anyone the opportunity to future-proof and diversify their investments by learning about Bitcoin and investing it in a simple and secure way.”

“Now, we want to use our six years of experience operating a bitcoin company in New Zealand to continue on our mission to bring bitcoin into the hands of the people by creating new bitcoiners in Europe and the UK. We believe that enabling people to regularly invest in bitcoin in a simple, automated, and hands-off manner with as little as £10 is one of the best ways to spread bitcoin to the masses.”

Binance Charity Donates 15,000 Protective Suits to South Africa to Support Fight Against Coronavirus

Binance Charity Donates

May 13, 2020 —​ ​Binance Charity​ the world’s first blockchain-powered donation platform dedicated to advancing transparent philanthropy, has supported South Africa’s efforts in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic by donating 15,000 protective suits to hospitals in the country – as part of the organisation’s Crypto Against COVID campaign.

Binance

Launched on March 24, 2020, Binance Charity’s ​Crypto Against COVID​ campaign was created to raise $5 million USD in cryptocurrencies (BNB, BTC, BUSD, and XRP) to be spent primarily on buying medical supplies for affected regions globally. Binance led this effort with an initial donation of $1 million USD, plus an additional donation of $1 million USD through the #CryptoAgainstCOVID social media campaign. In addition, Binance vowed to match $2 million USD of public donations received.

According to the ​WHO,​ as of May 11, 2020, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in South Africa has exceeded 10,000 – with 194 deaths. Making the country the most affected on the African continent.

A total of $3.9 million USD has been raised from Binance and public donations, with more than 40 crypto companies joining together to support the campaign. As of May 12, medical supplies have been shipped to various affected countries, including 10,000 protective suits to Turkey, ​400,000 masks to Italy​, and 15,000 suits to South Africa. Binance Charity has also committed to PPE donations to Puerto Rico and the Caribbean​ and launched ​a PPE token​ to support donation efforts for New York.

In addition to the ​15,000 protective suits for South Africa – which will be donated to the Health Department in the Western Cape and other hospitals -​ a further 20,000 masks for South Africa have been ordered for delivery within the next few weeks.

“The most important element of human life is to show compassion and help others as we can, without the limitation or restriction of borders. Blockchain technology enables this in greater capacities than ever before and Binance Charity wishes to bring this to the masses,”​ said Helen Hai, Head of Binance Charity.

This Crypto Against COVID donation to South Africa comes months after Binance Charity announced a $1 million USD commitment​ for charity work and crypto education in the country at the Blockchain Africa Conference in Johannesburg in March 2020 – where Binance, the global blockchain company behind the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume and users, announced the launch of a South African (ZAR) fiat-on-ramp with 5 trading pairs: BTC/ZAR, ETH/ZAR, BNB/ZAR, BUSD/ZAR and USDT/ZAR. ​Binance users in South Africa are able to deposit Rands (ZAR) from any South African bank account ​and enjoy features such as savings, spot, margin, lending, futures trading, etc.

On Binance’s commitment to South Africa and Binance Charity’s donation, Tanya Knowles, SA lead said:​ “Binance’s commitment to South Africa extends beyond our role as a cryptocurrency exchange. We are facing a healthcare and economic crisis which our generation has not witnessed before. We hope that this donation supports the many efforts being made in South Africa to fight the virus.”

Binance Charity maintains its mandate of 100% transparency. All transactions will be published in full transparency through the blockchain-based donation portal. Any hospital demands or sources of medical supplies and shipping aid willing to help in this cause may reach out to ​bcf@binance.com​.
