Los Angeles, CA – The DigiByte Awareness Team (DGBAT) in collaboration with Vertbase is launching a crypto donation platform with the SuperPAC Humanity Forward Fund which supports Andrew Yang for President in 2020. Vertbase, an instant buy, sell and swap exchange has created a donation based platform for charities and other entities who rely on donation based funding, for use in this case by HumanityFWD.
The #CryptoFWD donation platform will include Bitcoin, Litecoin, DigiByte, Dogecoin and Vertcoin upon initial launch. Mass adoption of cryptocurrency requires two things: awareness and real-world use cases. Crypto donations in the context of a presidential election campaign checks off both these boxes in a compelling way.
In Andrew Yang’s own words: “Cryptocurrencies and digital assets have quickly grown to represent a large amount of value and economic activity. It’s time for the federal government to create clear guidelines as to how cryptocurrencies/digital asset markets will be treated and regulated so that investment can proceed with all relevant information.” (https://www.yang2020.com/policies/digital-asset-regulation/)
As members of the Cryptocurrency Community it is significant to note that Andrew Yang is the only candidate who recognizes through his policies the innovation that the emerging blockchain economy represents, and embraces its technology as an asset rather than a threat. Cryptocurrency, like fiat, is not tied to any one political party. By incorporating a larger segment of the Cryptocurrency Community, DGBAT hopes that this donation platform will facilitate a broader conversation, donation and awareness effort surrounding the emergence of the crypto economy on a national level.
Humanity Forward Fund founder Seth Cohen notes, “we’ve always had great support in the crypto community for Andrew and our SuperPAC, and we were thrilled when DGBAT and Vertbase stepped up to make it even easier for supporters to donate in crypto. We are looking forward to using the funds raised for our initiatives including supporting campaign volunteers in early primary states with organizing and messaging, and supporting a model UBI program to provide proof of concept for this game changing idea.”
At the intersection of freedom of speech and freedom of monetary value lies political donations in crypto. DGBAT is grateful for the innovative spirit of the Humanity Forward Fund and Presidential candidate Andrew Yang who have embraced the future of the crypto economy, and the support of Vertbase without whom this would not be possible. To make donations to HumanityFWD.org to support the candidacy of Andrew Yang please visit CryptoFWD.org today.
It’s time to act. It’s not Left, it’s not Right… It’s HumanityFWD.
About Humanity Forward Fund:
HumanityFWD IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF SUPER PAC. The Humanity Forward Fund supports Andrew Yang for President in 2020. Advancing his candidacy and policies is our primary mission throughout the 2020 election cycle. HumanityFWD will leverage media and messaging to raise awareness on both a national and hyper-local level of Andrew Yang, Universal Basic Income, Human-Centered Capitalism and the 4th Industrial Revolution. In an ideal world, SuperPACs wouldn’t exist, but they do. To level the political playing field, HumanityFWD must exist – but we don’t have to compromise our VALUES. This means we will be 100% transparent, refuse all “dark money” and disclose exactly how the money is spent. It’s simply the FWD thing to do.
