The United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) launched a platform called Game Chaingers where gamers can lend their powerful GPUs and help the humanitarian fund mine Ethereum for the Syrian children.
To participate in this operation, all you need to do is to install Claymore, a mining software. You will be able to start or stop mining when you want and generate Ethereum right in UNICEF’s electronic wallet.
The Game Chaingers website statement
At the moment of writing, the fund has raised €16 with 4 active contributors sharing 188.44 MH/S. There are only 9 contributors in total so far.
UNICEF also said that contributor's PC will not consume more electricity than usual and it will still use the same amount of electricity that it usually does since it's not exactly the same as mining for bitcoins on your own. It is stated that Game Chaingers’ mining efforts will continue until March 31.
UNICEF has also posted the address of its Ethereum donation wallet on the official Game Chaingers website for those who want to contribute to this initiative but lack the computing resources.
We have recently reported that the UNICEF Innovation Fund is planning to invest $50 - 90 thousand to provide early-stage finance to blockchain technology start-ups that have the potential to benefit humanity
