A Belgian NGO has called for potential donors to think of Bitcoin when they want to donate to future projects.
“The acceptance of Bitcoin opens the door to major innovations within our projects through the technology of smart contracts or allows us to quickly send large sums of money to anywhere in the world when this is needed,” said Frank De Paepe, general manager Memisa. This makes Memisa the first Belgian NGO to accept this type of donation to support projects in development cooperation.
“We are very enthusiastic about the opportunities that Bitcoin has to offer to an NGO in development cooperation. It is an innovative technology that in our opinion should not be neglected or ignored, added De Paepa.
