Mercy Corps on Blockchain

1. New ways to build trust and reduce costs: Trust is one of the most precious commodities for NGOs. The use of distributed ledger technologies could enhance transparency and accountability and thereby boost trust. Moreover, the use of DLT to facilitate financial transactions and contractual
arrangements could reduce transaction costs and promote efficiencies, allowing us to put more of our money to our mission.
2. New ways to give: The arrival of digital currencies and the ability to tokenize assets on the blockchain open up new ways for donors to interact with their favorite causes.
