Blockchain for non-profits and how it improves our environment

Let's discuss your project

Overview

How blockchain can help charities solve problems

Nonprofits, unlike private companies, face additional challenges of confidence, responsibility, and openness that may jeopardize their ability to fulfil their missions.

According to the 2019 Give.org Donor Confidence Study, only 19% of respondents have a high level of trust in charities. Let's dig at some of the most pressing nonprofit challenges and their blockchain-based alternatives.

Benefits

Maxonrow Accountability and Corruption
Accountability and Corruption

So, what motivates people to be responsible in their jobs? Transparency, reporting, and overall accountability about what they do Blockchain technology will allow nonprofit organisations to account for their activities, trace the transfer of funds from the contributor to the recipient, and demonstrate that the latter's workers are serving their actual obligations. Where funds tend to 'disappear,' or cash solutions prove impossible, using blockchain for charities will help to keep these organisations responsible for how funds are invested. Since any expenditure is carefully documented, every misappropriation of funds appears evident.

The word 'blockchain' means that if a transaction is done, it is indefinitely encrypted in the network and there is a very limited risk that this evidence will be modified. It is also helpful when a donor has to demonstrate evidence of donation, since the transaction ID would suffice. Blockchain describes itself as an almost impenetrable mechanism for monitoring a nonprofit's finances, programmes, and acts. It will help regulate and monitor cash flows, allowing charities to demonstrate that their finances are actually going to people in need.

While any transaction on a blockchain network can be traced, digital wallets can successfully hide the identity of their owners. Smart contracts, which automatically trigger a predefined behaviour when such requirements are met, may be used to conduct transactions.

Expenses

Because of the architecture of blockchain technologies, most intermediaries such as banks and payment systems are eliminated. Which allows charities to cut overhead expenses while still transferring money directly to people in need more quickly. Adoption of blockchain-based technologies also attracts a new donor target group with compelling offers to donate in cryptocurrency. Because of the uncertainty of cryptocurrency, certain charities might are put off adopting it. However, utilities like The Giving Block eliminate the possibility of dealing with digital currencies by immediately transforming them to cash upon receipt.

It can be difficult to get the funds needed on-site in time to avoid more disruption. Since blockchain is decentralised, funds may be transferred from one location to another in seconds and at far lower costs. Furthermore, since it holds a certain level of its worth, blockchain acts as a secure mechanism to do so in the event that a bank or national currency fails (usually in comparison to the US dollar). One such instance happened in Syria, where the UN Food Programme distributed assistance to refugees using the Ethereum blockchain.

Today, emergency funds provided by nonprofit groups to vulnerable populations are often mismanaged or invested too fast to have a long-term effect. Furthermore, some countries just do not have the cash to supply. In this respect, though, blockchain-based financing has immense potential for charities.

Maxonrow Rights to one's identity
Rights to one's identity

When the dust falls following a war or exodus, deciding who is who can be challenging. Also in the absence of violence, one in every four children under the age of five does not have an official existence, according to UNICEF. It is now possible to offer a legal identity to those who would otherwise be without one by introducing cost-effective blockchain technologies for birth registration. This will serve as a means of recognition to help ensure that no one slips between the cracks when it comes to receiving care, practicing their rights, or investing in education.

The real estate sector suffers from inadequate owner rights enforcement and a lack of accountability. Blockchain applications can assist in tracking a property's past and detecting anomalies such as unlawful land acquisition. For example, the American startup Ubiquity has collaborated with Brazil's Real Estate Registry Office to develop the method of tracking real estate ownership. Brazil has historically seen a high incidence of bribery and corruption in the real estate industry. Owners will also benefit from the immutability of a blockchain-based data storage scheme, which protects their land rights and significantly decreases the possibility of fraud.

As much as we would like to think otherwise, free expression is almost never possible. Few nations prefer to censor media sources in attempt to distort popular sentiment and obscure activities that might be of concern to nonprofit organizations. Blockchain-based social media can defend free speech rights without fear of repercussions.

Maxonrow Security in the digital age
Security in the digital age

The value of big data and its consequences for enterprise can never be underestimated. It continues to lure cybercriminals, in part because of its appeal. Financial information fraud, data tampering, and identity theft are also real-world manifestations of cyberthreats of charitable organisations. While many corporate leaders are conscious of these, according to NTEN's 2018 State of Nonprofit Cybersecurity survey, more than half of nonprofits (68.2 percent) do not have recorded protocols and procedures in effect in the event of a cyberattack.

Nonprofits should use private blockchains and store data to guarantee the highest degree of security possible. End-to-end encryption will offer a significantly higher degree of data protection and anonymity to charities, making private donors more likely to donate to those groups.
