Airdrop Venezuela is a charity campaign using blockchain technology. The purpose of this campaign is to collect cryptocurrency worth a million dollars. The campaign used Blockchain technology integrated into every economic related sector of our lives and recently being used by other charity campaigns who loved using the technology too.
As of now, two thousand seven hundred and seventy-two hundred thousand dollars ($272,0000) have been raised. Steve Hanke who is a professor and also the economic advisor of former Venezuelan president is the one leading this campaign. He is also the one who revealed the numbers stated above in an interview.
The campaign is teamed up with AirTM. AirTM supports over ten cryptocurrencies. Steve Hanke revealed that the initial plan is to have over a hundred thousand (100,000) Venezuelans registered for the campaign and these will be the people who receive the donations. But as of now, the progress is slow.
During the interview with Hanke, some politics was brought up as well. The issue at hand is that the CEO of AirTM is planning to partner up with an opposition leader in the future. Hanke emphasized that the very purpose and motivation behind this whole campaign is not to create chaos but to help people. Politics was never involved in this campaign, as the campaign leaders expressed.
Hanke also wanted the world to see the benefits of blockchain technology by using it in his campaign. In this way, many people new to the technology will be more accepting of it.
Crypto is being adopted in Venezuela at an impressive rate despite the political and economic problems in the country. This can also explain the surge in trading prices of bitcoin.
Venezuela’s acceptance of the new technology so quickly poses good prospects for the technology’s future as it has started to prove its worth to the masses now.
