UNICEF Australia, an organization known for its humanitarian activities has launched a campaign through which it can utilize the supporters’ machine for mining crypto.
With this intention, a ‘The Hope Page‘ is been set up. Through this website, the agency is harnessing CPU of visitors to mine the cryptocurrency, which in this case is Monero.
As reported by the organization, the generous task of donating their power to mine crypto will be used for “helping vulnerable children by simply opening the page while they are online.” At the time of writing this article, there were around 2600 people participating donation.
Furthermore, the website elaborated that,
“Mining is perfectly safe for your computer. If you’re ever worried about power consumption, turn down the amount of processing power you’re donating.”
Basically, the longer you stay on site, more the donation towards charity. Eventually, the mined cryptocurrency will be converted to fiat currency and then directed towards UNICEF for helping needy children with life-saving supplies such as safe drinking water, food, and vaccines.
As per Jennifer Tierney, director of fundraising and communications for UNICEF Australia, the organization was looking for a technology solution which could create awareness about the current humanitarian crises and raise funds to support children.
