BitGive Interim President, Alyse Killeen joins us today to talk about how non-profit charities are increasingly accepting cryptocurrency as donations, and how these digital assets are revolutionizing global philanthropy. She describes how the process works and why blockchain technology and cryptocurrency are an important way to increase transparency in tracking how foundations are using your donation. Alyse talks about the birth and growth of BitGive, the first Bitcoin and blockchain non-profit charity, which just celebrated its fifth anniversary. She describes some of the complexities of donating crypto assets, both for givers and receivers and the “magic bean” challenges foundations confront in converting these contributions into something that’s truly useful to those in need.
