Giveth is an Open-Source Platform for Building Decentralized Altruistic Communities
The Donation Application (DApp)
Giveth is re-engineering charitable giving, by creating an entirely free, open-source platform, built on the Ethereum Blockchain. Our system cuts out bureaucracy and enables nonprofits to create a high level of transparency and accountability towards Givers. At any point until the moment funds are locked, a Giver can decide to withdraw them.
Giving to a cause can be just the beginning of your involvement. At Giveth we strongly believe in the power of communities to change the world. We are building our software to encourage Givers and Makers to connect as well as discover a decentralized governance model that works for them. We are actively practicing what we preach as we model what it is to be the first DAC.
We hope to help projects use our modular system to test their innovative smart contracts and UIs with real money in a low risk environment. Imagine starting a charity to help alleviate homelessness in your hometown while alpha testing an experimental decentralized governance system you plan to use in your project.
With Giveth, you can have live smart contract testing while making the world a better place! And because of Giveth's open-source nature, if a decentralized governance protocol or any other smart contract is used on the platform successfully it can easily achieve network effect and be utilized by other DACs (Decentralized Altruistic Communities) to aid in their cause. The #FutureOfGiving maximizing #blockchain4good!
The MiniMe token makes it trivial for anyone to upgrade a DApp/DAO midstream to include new features in a decentralized fashion, without affecting the current smart contracts and without having to ask for permission.
Our milestone contracts keep Campaigns accountable to their supporters. Breaking down lump sum amounts to help all types of organizations (for-profit or non-profits) be assured that contributed funds are well spent.
Giveth's DApp (Donation Application) is being developed by the Giveth DAC (Decentralized Altruistic Community). We are a community-led project and will not derive any direct profit from the platform. We strive to model the DAC concept as one of the first non-profit blockchain based entities. Learn more...
