“Folks would say ‘okay I’m by no means providing you with bitcoin in case you’re going to show it into this money trash, however in case you’re keen to carry it, I’d give it to you now…’ we stated we’re going to name it the Bitcoin Water Belief… and we’re going to carry all of it till a minimum of 2025.”

Non-profit organisations have used Bitcoin to just accept donations for a very long time. One of the crucial notable examples of this was Wikileaks in 2011. When Paypal, Mastercard and Visa, refused to just accept donations as a consequence of political stress, Wikileaks appeared to Bitcoin as a permissionless and censorship-resistant different.

Not solely did this enable them to proceed accepting donations, however they gained immensely from Bitcoin’s astronomical worth rise since then.

Charity: Water is a charity battling the worldwide water disaster with the mission to deliver clear water to each individual residing with out it. They’ve accepted Bitcoin donations since 2014, however till now, they’ve nearly immediately transformed to fiat currencies, lacking out on the worth appreciation.

Nonetheless, they’ve now arrange a Bitcoin belief with the objective of amassing as many Bitcoin donations as attainable. Ideally, this enables the belief to understand in worth and in 2025, once they begin placing the Bitcoin to work; they’ll hopefully assist a a lot bigger variety of individuals.

  1. This was a great interview, it is very inspiring and I am one of those who is naturally skeptical of charities in general, but Scott is really onto something IMHO. Great work again Pete. 'What Bitcoin Did' is definitely the best thing that I know of to emerge from Bedford!!

  2. My question is why these countries are seemingly unable to sort their own problems out. It seems to me that if that question could be answered, then these problems could be solved at a more fundamental level.

  3. unpopular opinion (but the right opinion): stop feeding strays. you are making the problem worse, not better. if a locale cannot support themselves, and they are dependent on outside help, then when the help goes away (because of an economic downturn, or whatever), then you are left with a massive tragedy that could have been avoided. sustainability does not involve feeding people who cannot feed themselves. teach a man to fish, don't give him a fish.

  4. I’m in. Hopefully, a few of the whales who have thrown huge amounts of BTC in Monkey and Rock NFT’s will consider this a worthy cause and help smash the target.

  5. Great video and keep up the good work. Nice to see folks paying attention to other parts of the world and educating us in other places that were born into such "ease", in some cases.
