How Bitcoin and Blockchain Will Transform the Social Sector
Beyond the hype of Bitcoin in the financial world is a growing movement in the social sector to leverage digital currencies and their underlying technology (called blockchain) for social impact.
In some places you can buy a Burger King hamburger or Subway sandwich with Bitcoin, and there are even Bitcoin ATMs.
Bitcoin’s currency cousins have allowed startups in the blockchain technology space to raise billions of dollars through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).
There is even a new crowdfunding site for social and political causes, called Bithope, which hosts fundraising campaigns that only accept donations in Bitcoin.
