With help from gamers, UNICEF hopes amass the power from thousands of graphic cards to mine the second largest cryptocurrency

UNICEF is recruiting gamers with a fundraising effort that, instead of calling upon people to donate money, just asks for a bit of the power in their graphic cards. The Game Chaingers campaign asks individuals to install a software that mines for Ethereum, which is the second largest cryptocurrency after bitcoin.

Participants can start or stop mining whenever they want and everything their graphic cards mine goes right into UNICEF’s digital wallet. Harnessing all the power from thousands (or millions) of graphic cards around the world is a stellar idea, and it’s already working. The non-profit is close to fulfilling its fifth goal and has received 672 contributions as of February 9.
