This is a charity initiative launched by Eidoo, a Swiss startup founded in 2017, but which is also open to all companies, associations and users who wish to contribute. On the Aidcoin website, in fact, users will find a dedicated page where they can contribute, even anonymously.
Obviously, as the press release explains, none of the companies involved will take any fees on the donations. The only fee to be paid by the user will be the one set by the relevant blockchain.
For donations, Helperbit and Aidcoin will accept: Bitcoin, Cardano, AidCoin, Basic Attention Token, BlackCoin, Dai, Dash, Decred, DigixDAO, Dogecoin, Enjin Coin, Essentia, Ethereum, FlypMe, GameCredits, GridCoin, Groestlcoin, Litecoin, PIVX, Power Ledger, Peercoin, Augur, Syscoin, TrueUSD, BLOCKv, Vertcoin, Zcash and 0x.
Through Helperbit it will then be possible to donate using even the most traditional credit and debit cards.
Thomas Bertani, CEO of Eidoo, said:
“Donations through Helperbit and AidCoin will ensure full transparency, accountability and direct access to end recipients. At Eidoo we are convinced that the crypto and the blockchain can help in solving many problems as well as the management of charitable donations that all too often hide sad truths, unfortunately”.
Guido Baroncini Turricchia, CEO of Helperbit, said:
“We are pleased that a well-known company in the crypto sector has chosen our platform to pursue its social initiative in the face of the events that took place at Notre-Dame. History and culture are rarely intertwined with the most pioneering technological innovations and being able to be ambassadors of this union is a source of satisfaction for us”.
Francesco Fusetti, CEO of AidCoin, explained:
“Through aidchain, our donation tracking platform, we can ensure that donations received reach the right recipient. The crypto received will be instantly converted to a stablecoin in order to guarantee the fiat value for the association without losing the blockchain’s traceability function”.
