Creating an open financial system takes its shape in many different ways, and in turn benefits people differently, too.
That’s why this December we’re partnering with DustAid to enable our customers to donate crypto to three brilliant charities this Christmas.
DustAid is an organisation that facilitates crypto donations to projects across the world. This partnership will allow Coinbase users in the UK to donate crypto to these important causes:
- NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity that seeks to keep young people safe from abuse;
- The Little Edi Foundation, which provides support and grants to struggling rural communities in Romania;
- Space for Giants, who work to protect and secure the future of elephants and their landscapes.
DustAid will be using Coinbase Commerce — our platform that allows merchants to accept cryptocurrency payments in a fully decentralised way — to facilitate these donations.
Louise Corden, NSPCC Lead Digital Producer, said: “Raising funds via cryptocurrency highlights how the NSPCC is continually exploring new ways to enable people to donate to the charity and contribute to our fight for every childhood.”
“We are really grateful for the backing we have received from DustAid and Coinbase, and we now hope that users of cryptocurrency go to their platforms to make a festive donation to Childline.”
Duncan Murray, Managing Director of DustAid said: “We firmly believe that by using blockchain technology we can help charities positively impact people all over the world. DustAid’s mission is to make giving a simple, easy and transparent part of our daily lives.”
“We are really proud to be working with leading organisations like Coinbase and NSPCC to make this a reality and to help children be heard this Christmas.”
