Humanitarian Support Grows With More Charities Accepting Crypto Other Than Bitcoin

It’s generally a little-known fact to those outside of the virtual currency arena that Bitcoin is not all about making large profits, but that the hallmark cryptocurrency, along with many others, is frequently used to forward humanitarian ideals through a wide range of charities around the globe. BitcoinNews has followed many of these charities over the past year. Whether it be the WFP, distributing cryptocurrency-based food vouchers to more than 100,000 Syrian refugees living in Jordan, or the donation of funds through UNICEF in Bangladesh for the Rohingya crisis to provide humanitarian relief for both children and mothers, wherever you look around the world, cryptocurrency is increasingly being sought out by charitable agencies and NGOs as a way of getting funds to where they should go. The speed of delivery of Bitcoin and Ethereum has offered a real plus when it comes to donations, and particularly the transparency of the blockchain which has managed to cut through many a donor’s predispositions not give to charity due to past criminal activity or out and out fraud. One particular charity, little publicized, is the Water Project which now accepts a variety of cryptocurrencies apart from Bitcoin to support its projects and now accepts Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, or Litecoin. The project’s simple aim is to ensure the inhabitants of sub-Saharan Africa have access to clean, disease-free water. Recently, there’s been a significant increase in charity events related to crypto. Some of these have joined a growing establishment of charities accepting Bitcoin donations such as Electronic Frontier Foundation, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, WikiLeaks, Antiwar.com, Code to Inspire, Bitgive and Epic Change. Another very worthwhile project is the health project Watsi which uses cryptocurrency and blockchain tech for community healthcare crowdfunding. This unique project allows donors to choose recipients and meet them online and discuss their needs. Even cryptocurrency exchanges and ICOs are involved; beyond Coinbase’s much-publicized Xmas giveaway and its “Give Crypto” project last year, blockchain-based UTRUST payment platform and AidCoin also combined forces last year to enable charitable donations across the world in 23 different cryptocurrencies. Charitable donations through a range of different cryptocurrencies have never been so prevalent with even the big names realizing that the future of donations is rapidly going digital. With the Red Cross and UNICEF now firmly on board, its no longer just Bitcoin showing the way.

The Daily: Trust Wallet Adds BCH, 35,000 Merchants Get Access to Crypto Payments

In today’s edition of The Daily we cover an ethereum wallet that’s added support for bitcoin cash, a deal that grants access to accepting payments in cryptocurrency to over 35,000 merchants, and the latest advancement in cross-chain atomic swaps. Also Read: Banking Agency Advises European Commission to Assess Common Crypto Approach Trust Wallet Adds Bitcoin Cash Trust Wallet, a mobile wallet for ethereum and ERC20 tokens, has announced it has added support for bitcoin cash (BCH) on Android and iOS in the latest update of the app. In addition to BCH, the service has also added support for native segwit compatible LTC and BTC wallets. “As some of you probably have noticed over the past month, Trust Wallet is becoming much more than a simple ethereum and ERC20 wallet. Since our inception around a year ago, Trust has grown to support more than 10 native blockchains, including their native tokens,” the team stated. “We would like Trust Wallet to become your one stop solution for interacting with this new decentralized world, so going forward we will be adding more coins and features to enable our users to fully embrace the seamless experience of having all your tokens, collectibles, dapps and more in one place.” 35,000 Merchants Get Access to Crypto Payments Utrust, the Zug-headquartered cryptocurrency payments gateway solution, has announced a new integration with Quid Systems’ point of sale (POS) product. Over 35,000 merchants will be able to use the platform in order to accept cryptocurrency as a means of payment through this feature. Quid POS enables transactions between merchants and customers through a proprietary cash register. “For Utrust merchants, Quid POS offers something unique in the point of sale space - transparent transactions utilizing a currency conversion cash register with an affinity for cryptocurrency payments,” said Utrust CEO Nuno Correia. “We speak the same language of trust and this partnership expands both our missions to make cryptocurrency payments accepted universally.” Atomic Swaps Take Another Leap Atomic cross-chain swaps are a method for converting or exchanging one cryptocurrency to another without using a centralized exchange or a trusted third party. Qtum, a project meant to combine the Bitcoin Core protocol with Ethereum technology, has now demonstrated atomic swaps within its mainnet, a process that will allow users to swap QTUM for BTC. “The feature of not having a third party dependency and atomicity is consistent with basic principles of Bitcoin, so the future of atomic cross-chain swaps are favored by the market,” explained the team. “Many mainstream cryptocurrencies have realized atomic cross-chain swap and released their codes. As the cryptocurrency technologies and markets mature, atomic cross-chain swaps will have more application scenarios. For example, cross-chain exchanges of large amount of cryptocurrencies can be completed on the blockchain using this technology, without the need of centralized exchanges which will charge a large amount of fees.” What do you think about today’s news tidbits?

TRON Releases Weekly Report: TRX Listed on 100 Exchanges, Reaches 159 Trading Pairs

Tron, led by its founder and CEO, Justin Sun recorded a number of key milestones, according to the Dapp weekly report published on Dec. 17th. Tron’s global expansion continues smoothly as the startup held its first Africa meetup in Nairobi, Kenya. Tron’s accelerator program is gaining traction as more developers are signing up on the platform. Tron’s Market Transactions and Work Completed It seems Tron has had a good time ever since its MainNet launch back in June. The project has been listed on more than 100 exchanges which offer “trading pairs between TRON and other tokens as well as fiat currencies.” With 159 trading pairs, Tron has surpassed Stellar with 157 trading pairs. Tron was launched in 2017 compared to Stellar which was established more than three years earlier. Tron’s native currency, TRX, is now available on the SWFT Blockchain trading platform. The trading platform achieves secure, fast, and low-cost transactions through the use of blockchain technology, machine learning, and big data technology. TRX Market, a new decentralized exchange (DEX) developed on Tron’s ecosystem was launched during the week. The exchange focuses on key features such as “safety, reliability, openness, transparency, speed, and convenience.” The transactions are carried out in smart contracts while the data is recorded on the blockchain. This renders the data immutable, transparent, and available in real-time. The decentralized exchange has a high level of security as it does not touch the users’ digital assets. Moreover, users can trade directly using the wallet. The technical development team “tested the Token name duplication” and is yet to optimize data storage and dynamic changes of resource ceiling. Tron Communities The Tron Accelerator program launched recently is growing in popularity. The contest website has recorded more than 12,000 views while more than 160 individuals and teams have signed up for the program. A Chinese moderator is the latest member to join Discord. Tron released White Paper 2.0, and the release of the Chinese version of the developer documentation is slotted for next week. Tron held its first offline meetup in Africa in Nairobi, Kenya. This marks a significant step as Tron makes inroads in the African markets. On the same basis, the first South American Tron meetup was held in Florianopolis, Brazil - the largest country in South America. The meetup was attended by Tron enthusiasts and developers who gained more insights about Tron, Project ATLAS, Tron Accelerator, and more. The winners of the first “TikTok” contest were announced during the week. The winners are required to contact Tron to claim their prizes. The growth of the Tron ecosystem is evidenced by the increasing number of Sun’s followers on Facebook. Sun made a number of proposals such as raising “the energy from 50 billion to 250 billion.” This has an advantage of significantly reducing the cost of development. Sanja Kon, Vice President of Global Partnerships at UTRUST will be the main speaker at Tron’s 2019 niTRON Summit to be held in San Francisco. Her speech will focus on how the payments sector has been reshaped by cryptocurrencies. Tim Byun, CEO of OKCoin USA will attend the summit and give a keynote speech. His speech will focus on how the crypto industry will evolve in 2019. Mars Finance formed an alliance with Tron Arcade Game Fund. The two parties will “leverage their resources jointly and cooperate extensively in the blockchain game industry.” Tron’s number of real-time accounts has reached another record high of 818,274. Importantly, the Tron network remains “stable with high-speed growth.” TRON Releases Weekly Report: TRX Listed on 100 Exchanges, Reaches 159 Trading Pairs was originally found on [blokt] - Blockchain, Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency News.
