In Friday the United Nations children organization, UNICEF, launched a genius initiative. The new fund-raising project is somewhat similar to [email protected] and [email protected] but it involves guess what – cryptocurrency mining.
The new initiative focuses on the children who barely survive in post-war Syria. UNICEF this time turn towards gamers from all around the world. How can they help you might ask? Since gaming computers have solid CPUs the organization asks gamers to put their CPUs to work when they are not playing. Gamers can easily download an Ethereum mining software and mine the cryptocurrency.
The new project goes by the name “Game Chaingers” and it is super easy to get involved. One just has to install the software on their PC. It is not even necessary to configure the settings manually because the software automatically configures itself according to the user’s PC.
How does the magic happen?
Game Chaingers utilizes the power of each CPU and mines ethereum. The mined tokens are automatically sent to the UNICEF wallet. The success of the project highly depends on the number of gamers who take part in it. Just imagine the funds collected if the majority of players out there get on board.
UNICEF is desperately looking for new donors since the bigger part of its main benefactors are well over 50. With the rise of new technologies, it is easier than ever to contribute without even giving actual money. I mean, how cool is that?
According to the children’s organization, the mining software does not consume vast amounts of electricity and will practically have zero effect on user’s bills. Representatives of UNICEF claim that computers will consume just the same amount of electricity as they usually do.
Game Chaingers will only borrow your CPU’s power after having your blessings, so if you are worried about the bills, there’s actually nothing to worry about. You can check the official video here.
