What is TraceDonate?
TraceDonate is a donation platform powered by blockchain technology that offers end-to-end transparency.
Designed to be like your day-to-day e-commerce journeys, you can donate to individuals and appeals connected to the platform by international NGOs and humanitarian organisations. TraceDonate will send you email and SMS notifications when your donations has been used. The notifications will also tell you how they were used – all the whilst, building up your personal donation history.
How does it work
Leveraging blockchain technology, the donation process tokenizes items (cash, utilities, groceries, medical products etc). Organisations on the platform will make these available. You, as donors, will see these as items that you can choose to donate.
With items in the form of tokenized assets, they can be digitally transferred as donations from digital identity to digital identity, from donors, organisations to end-beneficiaries. Because this entire process takes place on a platform that is powered by blockchain, TraceDonate also builds permanent and transparent records of donations.
We also make this information available to you in the form of email and SMS notifications and via your Trace dashboard. This notification will tell you where and how you donation has been utilised. Information on individual donations are then collected to build your personal donation history that you can view on the dashboard anytime.
