Connie Gallippi, Founder and Executive Director of BitGive, said:
“This is an extremely exciting and long-awaited partnership for us, as we’re now able to open up our platform to a whole new audience. The integration with Uphold truly makes GiveTrack accessible to anyone, anywhere, and still allows our users to have a completely transparent and seamless donation tracking experience.”
Through the integration, users will be able to donate to any of the charitable projects on the GiveTrack platform using a number of cryptocurrencies including Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Dash as well as 23 traditional global currencies. Previously, donations on GiveTrack were only made in bitcoin.
Robin O’Connell, Chief Revenue Officer of Uphold, said:
“It has been inspiring working with BitGive while also being able to leverage the Uphold platform. Uphold is always looking for real-world use cases and to facilitate non-speculative transactions. Here is a perfect example of how blockchain and cryptocurrencies can be applied in the philanthropic ecosystem. To provide donors with a previously non-existent level of transparency and efficiency while ensuring recipients get the most out of their funding.”
Uphold is the creator of an open, trusted, and transparent digital money platform that lets users quickly and safely access traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies, and other investments all in one place. Uphold has powered more than $4 billion in transactions across 184 countries, in more than 30 supported currencies and four commodities.
