Charity through Blockchain
This good human habit found a way to spread through technological means. Now, blockchain and crypto assets are providing new means to help others
The human mind is governed by several factors in which compassion is one and the most compassionate of them all. Though everyone seems to wake up every day with a goal in mind to achieve their desired destiny, a lot of people also miss out on the purpose of being charitable in their quest for survival.
Also, most organizations ensure they carry out many charitable activities to reach out to the less privileged in the society as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in order to give back to most especially the communities for which they are either located or want to sponsor.
What is charity?
Firstly, I would define this in the context of CSR: Corporate social responsibility is a form of international private business self-regulation, which aims to contribute to societal goals of a philanthropic, activist, or charitable nature by engaging in or supporting volunteering or ethically-oriented practices.
This can also come from individuals who see the need to help others especially those in difficult situations and trying challenges.
These charitable activities can be deployed in various forms, which include but are not limited to educational scholarships, water supply in poor communities, healthcare and so much more.
Such organizations have shown that there is a need to support such communities in every little way possible to give the community a better quality of life.
Blockchain and crypto as means to do good
The same is also true for the blockchain technology and cryptocurrency ecosystem.
Several crypto communities have raised funds for the support of a just cause like the fight against covid pandemic in India where over $2 billion dollars were raised using blockchain technology as people were able to make their contributions using cryptocurrency all over the world.
A dedicated wallet was created for the funds to be contributed towards the charitable cause without any human intervention and the funds given to the designated people in charge of the implementation of the project.
The same was also implemented in small and micro water projects in rural communities where portable drinking water is a challenge and a few friends in the crypto community called for support to drill portable water boreholes in local communities in Lagos, Nigeria.
The boreholes were drilled within a few days and good drinking water was available for the rural communities by the effort of charitable crypto friendly communities.
A charitable and Klever community
However, the same can be said for the Klever community as we have the charitable desire to help members of the community to achieve greatness.
Our CEO, Dio Ianakiara, is indeed one of the most charitable leaders in the crypto community. In the past, he ensured people could begin to be a part of the Klever ecosystem by providing knowledge and some giveaways for their social engagements, for instance.
This has endeared members of the community to the CEO as well as promoted a place of awareness shared by the people themselves. All of them became multipliers of Klever’s ideals once they had already experienced the perks of its functionalities in their daily lives.
Another great example is a very wonderful community member that calls himself Sam The Carpetman who is also acknowledged as one of the most charitable members after the CEO in the Klever community, endorsing every Klever project and helping users to spread the word of Klever in Social Media.
A wise man once said “You can’t give what you don’t have” and that is why it is evident that the Klever community is the most charitable community in the crypto space at the moment as we often try to support our community in every way possible.
It is indeed a Klever thing to do.
