Cryptocurrency, you’ve probably heard about it even if you don’t engage in it. A new crowdfunding is offering a interesting way to use the technology to help those who need it most. And you can pitch in. Give Bytes site doesn’t want money, it wants your computing power.
Instead of having users donate cash, the site has users donate computing time to mine. The funds that are earned are given to whatever campaign you’re supporting. It takes a good deal of computing power to mine bitcoin. Most people who do it have systems set up to do nothing but, all day, every day. This site instead uses the borrowed power of people who want to help.
You determine how much power you put behind this. No need to download an app, it’s all done over the web. Just pick your campaign and hit “start mining” button and you’re ready to go. Stop when you want to. The project works with nonprofits directly. Check out the website for more information.
