What is TraceDonate?
TraceDonate is a donation platform powered by blockchain technology that offers end-to-end transparency.
Receive donations direct from individual or institutional donors connected to the platform by international NGOs, charities and humanitarian organisations.
A TraceDonate account provides you with a unique AID:Tech ID so you can manage your entitlements, make payments and build up your unique personal history.
How does it work
Leveraging blockchain technology, the donation process tokenizes items (cash, utilities, groceries, medical products etc). Organizations make these available to donors so that you, as beneficiary, can receive donation of these items direct to your TraceDonate account.
