1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN][ICO] Wishcoin - Changing the Face of Cryptocurrency on: October 09, 2017, 12:06:47 PM

Wishcoin is a ground-breaking charitable Altcoin run by the not-for-profit Wishcoin Foundation. Wishcoin simultaneously creates an infinite funding stream for charities worldwide whilst also addressing the main issues facing most Altcoins, lack of mainstream awareness and adoption.
Wishcoin will not only be accepted as a method of donation for thousands of charities, it will also be introduced to their corporate partners and other respective businesses looking to be associated with such an altruistic brand.
Wishcoin will be the first cryptocurrency to truly benefit both investors and the charitable sector, one built on widespread awareness and emotive, newsworthy causes.

Wishcoin is a heavily pre-mined coin, with 50% of all coins generated to date having been donated to the Wishcoin fund. This means that 50% of all Wishcoins will directly benefit charities. This not only makes humanitarian sense, it makes perfect business sense. Every donation made to charity will raise the profile of Wishcoin amongst consumers and businesses alike. Charities that are due to receive donations will be encouraged to promote Wishcoin and accept Wishcoin as a donation method for their charity. This in turn will increase the awareness and subsequently the price of Wishcoin and thus increase the value of the donation that charity is due to receive, creating a win-win scenario.
Charities will receive their donations in fiat currency after their coins have been sold in a drip-fed fashion to avoid any negative impact on the price of Wishcoin. Every charity that partners with Wishcoin will attribute more and more confidence to the coin and subsequently the price will continue to rise. The next step will be to work with businesses that support our charitable partners to enable payments and/or donations on their platforms. This staggered adoption will be a soft introduction to WishCoin for these businesses, allowing them to familiarise themselves with Wishcoin and to experience the benefits that can be achieved compared to fiat currency.
This cycle ever perpetuates, as the currency grows in value, donations will increase and thus media coverage and influence will build. These increases will fuel further confidence in the coin and facilitate expansion, greater adoption and drive the value of the coin ever higher.

Wishcoin will directly benefits thousands of charities worldwide. Donations will not be industry specific, all causes will be considered on their merits alongside the direct benefits to Wishcoin. The foundation will carefully select which charities will be donated to and will be adopting multiple strategies to ensure maximum exposure. This may include donating within televised fundraising events, donating to well established charities with strong retail links, whilst also focusing on smaller charities where funds will have a greater impact. Publicity stunts will be routine, whether it be the handover of a cheque to a celebrity ambassador of a given charity or encouraging a small town to adopt Wishcoin as a method of payment within their local shops, in exchange for a donation to their local cause. The genius of Wishcoin is that it will be in the best interest of the entity receiving the donation, to publicise Wishcoin to the fullest degree. A pledge of a certain volume of coins will be made months in advance of said coins being converted into fiat currency and thus in that time period, should the value of the coins double or treble due to their marketing efforts and raising the profile of Wishcoin, everyone will greatly benefit. The coins pledged will be worth significantly more and those who are due to receive future pledges will also benefit from the increase in value. Our team has over 50 years of experiences working both within and alongside charities, fundraising and building contacts. These relationships will be integral to ensuring that Wishcoin benefits fully from the donations made. Our in house PR team will also work tirelessly to ensure that donations gain the attention of both mainstream media and crypto specific media alike, raising the profile and awareness of Wishcoin as a brand. Further we expect for significant media attention to surround Wishcoin as an investment, due the exponential gains mixed with the good causes that are benefitting from the value of the coin. We believe this will encourage traditional investors, who may have been previously guarded with cryptocurrency as an investment, to invest.

It is worth noting that the General Data Protection Regulation due to come into force in May 2018 will have a significant impact on charities fundraising activities. This could have a devastating impact on smaller or less financially secure charities, whilst also having a significant impact on others, Wishcoin will be perfectly primed to assist such charities and the market will be even more receptive.
