SmartAid — Datarella Launches The World’s First Blockchain-Based Donations App

Yes­ter­day, Datarel­la and YOU Foun­da­tion have launched Smar­tAid, the first dig­i­tal dona­tion app that allows for trace­able dona­tions based on blockchain tech­nol­o­gy. Smar­tAid offers imme­di­ate sup­port in cri­sis sit­u­a­tions and lets its donors track their dona­tions until they reached ben­e­fi­cia­ries. SmartAid’s first project is “Clean Water for West Africa”, a char­i­ty project ini­ti­at­ed and man­aged by YOU Foun­da­tion, led by UNESCO Spe­cial Ambas­sador Dr. h.c. Ute-Henriette Ohoven.

Why Donat­ing Must Be Changed!

Time and again, poten­tial donors won­der how dif­fi­cult it still is, to donate to the right cause, and in an effi­cient and fun way. Often, you can’t donate using your mobile, or can’t even donate online. Then, you would donate to a cer­tain gen­er­al topic, rather than to a spe­cif­ic project. Last, but not least, as a donor, you can’t track and trace the path of your dona­tion. Many poten­tial donors are put off by clunky, com­plex, and intrans­par­ent dona­tion process­es. Given a huge amount of spare money many peo­ple in the rich parts of our world have avail­able for being spent to a good cause, this is a wast­ed oppor­tu­ni­ty.

Enter Smar­tAid! 

Effi­cient, and easy-to-use, the blockchain-based web app does not only make donat­ing fun but offers fer­vent­ly desired trans­paren­cy of the money flows: Right after hav­ing donat­ed between 1 – 199 Euro, the dona­tion will be stored on the Smar­tAid blockchain. The donor receives a track­ing code to trace her dona­tion until it reach­es its des­ti­na­tion. This so-called “trace­able dona­tion” is a world first. Secure and immutable blockchain tech­nol­o­gy guar­an­tees that all dona­tions will reach the right ben­e­fi­cia­ry by mak­ing the flow of money trans­par­ent to the donor.

Secu­ri­ty, Trans­paren­cy, and Fun

Donat­ing via Smar­tAid is not only secure, effi­cient, and trans­par­ent – it’s fun! A direct con­nec­tion to a donor’s cred­it card or Pay­Pal account allows for an easy process that even lets donors share their dona­tions via Social Media, thus moti­vat­ing oth­ers to share this expe­ri­ence and joint­ly sup­port the char­i­ty project.

“For a long time, we at YOU Foun­da­tion have been look­ing for a way to enable indi­vid­u­als to donate to our char­i­ty projects all around the world. There­fore, we can’t wait to see Smar­tAid in action!”, says Ute-Henriette Ohoven, founder of YOU Foun­da­tion.

“Since 2015, we at Datarel­la have been work­ing on Blockchain projects with our cor­po­rate part­ners, such as Bosch, Siemens, BMW, Merck, and inter­na­tion­al human­i­tar­i­an orga­ni­za­tions, such as the UN World Food Pro­gramme WFP, or UK Aid. We are very happy to launch Smar­tAid, togeth­er with YOU Foun­da­tion, and we are high­ly curi­ous how donors will per­ceive the new trans­paren­cy of their dona­tions”, adds Michael Reuter, CEO of Datarel­la.
