Bitcoin is a digital peer-to-peer currency that has been gaining momentum globally. In 2013, Bitcoin had 3.4 million online mentions and many companies, as well as nonprofits, have begun experimenting with emerging digital currencies. Nonprofit Bitcoin experts, David J. Neff and Jason Shim, will help you understand how the digital currency can benefit your nonprofit.
David J. Neff helped PricewaterhouseCoopersÂ (pwc) with an online consumer survey to gather awareness, attitudes, and behaviors about Bitcoin, and he will share some of the findings. What should nonprofit tech, web, digital, and executives know about Bitcoin and its potential impact? What are the risks and benefits? PwC’s point of view is that Bitcoin can be part of an innovative strategy for products, services, and payment systems.
Jason Shim led the Bitcoin implementation for Pathways to Education Canada in 2013, and has advised numerous other nonprofit organizations on how to integrate digital currency as a donation channel. Jason will explain the process of how Pathways integrated Bitcoin and will discuss common challenges around executive buy-in, legal and financial compliance, donation tracking, and security. In this webinar, you will also learn about a funding opportunity that will donate $1,000 USD to your nonprofit if you implement Bitcoin as a donation channel.
