Yes, Unicef does use Bitcoin. The organization has been accepting donations in the cryptocurrency since 2015 and has even set up a Bitcoin fund to receive and manage these donations.
While some may view Bitcoin as a risky investment, the organization sees it as a way to receive donations from a new pool of potential donors. And with the recent surge in Bitcoin’s value, Unicef’s Bitcoin holdings are now worth more than ever.
So far, Unicef has used its Bitcoin donations to provide internet access and other resources to schools in Syria and Venezuela. The organization is also exploring how blockchain technology can be used to help provide financial services to people in developing countries.
Ultimately, Unicef hopes that by accepting Bitcoin donations, it can help more people around the world access the resources they need to improve their lives.
