Index on Censorship begins accepting donations in digital currency

BY INDEX ON CENSORSHIP

Index on Censorship, one of the world’s leading freedom of expression organisations, is to start taking donations in digital currency.

The move to accept cryptocurrency donations comes following a major gift from blockchain company Mainframe and will be used to support projects defending freedom of expression worldwide, including the Freedom of Expression Awards Fellowship, which supports those on the frontline of censorship.

The technology that underpins digital currencies is owned and maintained by all its users rather than being controlled by a single authority – this means it offers a powerful alternative to traditional forms of giving and also for challenging censorship,” said Jodie Ginsberg, chief executive of Index on Censorship.

“Blockchain technology promises a future that can belong to everyone, where no voice can be muzzled. Mainframe was honored to be the first to donate cryptocurrency to Index on Censorship, and we’d encourage anyone else serious about combatting censorship to do the same,”  said Mick Hagen, CEO of Mainframe.
