Every single year, over $400 billion dollars are donated for charitable causes and non profits organizations all over the world. But sometimes, it is not clear where the money goes and how it is being spent by these foundations. Additionally, donors do not know how their charitable giving is impacting and changing the world.
This is why Vantage Token will bring transparency to giving by leveraging blockchain technology. Contributors will be able to see where non-profits will be spending their donations – just by using Vantage Network. It will be very easy to do that, just like tracking a package, but instead, you will be tracking your donation.
Contributors will be able to see the impact of their donations and then, they will be donating more. According to a YouGov Omnibus Survey at the end of 2017, 67% of people would donate more to a charity/non-profit organization that is transparent in how they spend donations.
People in need get what they need, non-profits get more money to do more good, and contributors clearly see the impact their donations have.
But this is just the beginning, the platform is scalable and would be useful in many other fields including educational fundraisers, political campaigns, venture capital, crowdfunding, and any online fundraising campaign.
How Does The Platform Work?
It is very easy; a contributor makes a donation using its credit card to a non-profit organization that uses the Vantage Network. Then, the contributor receives a tracking ID that is associated with their donation – very similar to how package delivering works now. Then, they can use this ID to track how their donation is used by the non-profit organization.
The non-profit organization receives the donation in its Vantage Account and spends the donation using the Vantage Mobile Pay app. The interesting point is that the Vantage Network is based on the NEM blockchain, so the donation can be easily tracked.
Vantage Tokens, Sale, and Information
The platform uses Vantage Tokens (XVT) which is one of the key components of the network. A small percentage of every single donation will be converted into XVT, which will be used in the platform to track how fundraising organizations spend the donations they receive.
The Token Sale is not open to everyone. Residents of the United States and other countries where Token Sales and ICOs are not permitted.
The ICO accepts BTC and ETH tokens and he minimum contribution is .05 ETH. The hard cap is 35,000 ETH.
The tokens will be distributed as follows:
55% for the Crowdsale, 20% Vantage Network Reserve and Held for use in Vantage Network, 15% for the Vantage Team, finally, 10% for Vantage Advisors and Partners.
