United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Opens Crypto Mining Charity Website
Now you can help the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in a new way: by mining tokens for it. UNICEF Australia has recently created a page called The Hope Page. If you visit it, you can read that the site offers a chance to help the organization by giving your processing power for mining.
It is basically like cryptojacking except that this time you will be warned first and you will be helping children all over the world with this initiative. If you do not know UNICEF, the organization works to help children and to protect their rights in the world’s poorest places so they can fulfill their potential.
The UNICEF Mining Process
After you decide to mine, you can choose 20% to 80% of your computing power to be used for mining. The effect will last for as long as you are on the page and stop as soon as you disconnect from it. This means that the more time you stay on the page, the more you will donate to UNICEF.
Information on the site states that mining is perfectly safe and that if you are worried about power consumption, you can just turn down the power that you will give. The money will be turned into fiat currency and donated to the institution. The site mines Monero by using the browser miner’s Coinhive.
