Game Chaingers UNICEF program to raise crypto funds for Syrian children with the aid of PC gamers
Cryptocurriencies are not entirely about fraudulent anonymity, hacks and scams, and UNICEF wants to prove that blockchain technologies can also be employed for a good cause. The latest UNICEF Game Chaingers program aims at raising funds for the war-torn Syrian children with the aid of generous gamers that may lend the power of their GPUs in order to mine Ethereum.
In order to facilitate the donations, Unicef has launched a site that presents all the fundraiser essentials. Donors can participate by installing a custom version of the Claymore mining software that is usually used to mine Ethereum. Miners can stop the software anytime they want and the Ethereum goes directly in UNICEF’s electronic wallet. Up until now, UNICEF managed to raise 900+ Euro in 3 days, but the program will last for 54 more days (March 31). Additionally, people that don’t have a powerful enough gaming rig can donate directly to the Ethereum address specified on the site.
With all the bad publicity the crypto world has been getting lately, it must be quite refreshing to see a humanitarian campaign that aims to raise funds with the aid of blockchain technologies.
