What is TraceDonate?
TraceDonate is a donation platform powered by blockchain technology that offers end-to-end transparency.
A TraceDonate account provides you with a unique ID. With an AID:Tech ID, you can manage your balance (goods and services donated to you), make payments and build up your unique personal history. You are directly connected to individual or institutional donors via TraceDonate, managed by international NGOs, charities and humanitarian organisations.
How does it work
Donations are digitally delivered to your TraceDonate account. Leveraging blockchain technology, the donation process tokenizes items (cash, utilities, groceries, medical products etc). Organizations determine what goods and services are made available. So that you the beneficiary, can receive donation of these items directly.
