War Child Canada goes Crypto to raise additional funds

- Partnership with Cudo paves way for new donation revenue stream -


October 10th, 2018, Cudo today announced that its Cudo Donate revenue generator for charities is now live with War Child Canada.

The idea is simple. With one click, donors use their computers’ power to mine cryptocurrencies with any income generated going towards War Child Canada’s fundraising efforts. Cudo Donate is 100% secure, simple to set-up and carbon neutral.

Using your computer to solve complex mathematical problems as part of a bigger network is called mining. As a reward for lending the processing power and electricity, miners are paid in cryptocurrency. Cudo Donate takes care of all of the technical aspects in the background whilst automating the whole process. A charity merely has to add a browser application to their home page and wait for the donations to come in. An even more powerful desktop application is also available for Mac and Windows desktops, allowing donors to generate even more revenue for the charity.

Matt Hawkins, founder of Cudo, explains: “I’ve been involved in the IT industry for a long time and was introduced to cryptocurrency mining a few years ago. It can be quite complex technically to set up. It struck me that if we could use our knowledge to take care of all the technical barriers, we could potentially harness everyone’s computers to raise much-needed funds for charities. I’m pleased to say that we managed it and War Child Canada is one of a number of charities that are tapping in to this new and innovative way of fundraising,”

Matt and his team at Cudo have considered everything. Cudo Donate is 100% carbon neutral; all electricity usage is offset. Cudo Donate is not linked to one digital currency; rather, it automatically assigns itself to the one that is best performing. It is a one-click process for donors, no need to sign up or add your details. Critically, there are no monthly direct debits or physical payments  - it couldn’t be any easier to get up and running. Cudo Donate is also completely safe to use.

Hawkins, added: “We’re on a mission, we want to raise a Billion dollars for charities. We think it’s possible. We think that harnessing the power of millions of unused computers to mine crypto-currencies could really achieve our goal.

Brock Warner, Director Community Giving & Innovation at War Child Canada, said: “We are constantly looking to innovate, recruit new donors and, ultimately, to attract more funds. Cudo Donate is so simple, so obvious, that it was a slam-dunk for us. We can now connect in a different way with both existing and a new demographic of donors. The potential as a new revenue stream has us very excited. We’ll be watching closely as things progress,”
