    Crypto donation platform seeks to help charities regain trust, boost funds, attract young donors

    GiveSafely.io aims to entice younger consumers to start donating—spurred on by research suggesting they’re more open to being approached by good causes

    A big challenge that’s often associated with charitable giving lies in how well-intentioned consumers can end up being bombarded with calls and emails afterward. GiveSafely.io aims to change this by ensuring their data is secured on the Ardor blockchain—and confidential information is only passed on with the donor’s consent.
