The session will show how to merge two seemingly disparate areas - non-profit organizations and working blockchain technologies - to the benefit of both. Non-profits are in constant need of more members and funding. Blockchain solutions are in need of users, to use working solutions and to validate others.
Non-profits face challenges that can be met with existing blockchain technologies:
Small marketing budgets but a constant need to increase membership, visitors and attention.
A perception / reality of being “low tech” which impacts all visitors but especially “tech-savvy” visitors.
The struggle of whether a non-profit should monetize their content.
The session will go into further detail on:
Compensation for Content
Proof of Content Creation
Content Curation and Reputation
