Description: When people think of cryptocurrencies, they think of volatility and data leaks, not philanthropy. But organizations in the US and the world are accepting cryptocurrencies and even creating their own. With the rise in new cryptocurrencies each month, it appears that the e-currency may not be a passing fad. This session will give an overview of what cryptocurrencies are and how they relate to fundraising. The session will explore best practices and ethics, talk about donor profiles, and more to help prospect developers get better acquainted with this new area of philanthropy. I will be expanding on my article I wrote for The Daily Dot on this topic.
