Hey,

Thanks for the post. You raise some valid points but I think you have totally misunderstood the concept. The money being raised on indiegogo is not for the ex-offenders themselves. The money being raised initially is to set up a crowdfunding site that will give ex-offenders a platform to raise money for all sorts of different charity projects. They will receive no personal financial gain whatsoever.

The idea is that by being involved in these sort of projects they will feel a sense of personal satisfaction which in turn will reduce the chances of them re-offending.

The idea is most definitely not to line their pockets, but instead for them to work selflessly for the good of others. And the only reason the crypto-currency will be converted into GBP is so that indiegogo gets to take their fee and does not remove the project for accepting crypto donations.

I hope I helped clear things up a bit...

OK, so if I understand correctly, you will provide work in the form of community service to the ex-offenders. ??
If I get it right then it's not bad.
Will they volunteer for it or is it going to be an actual job for them?



Hey,

No we will not be providing work directly for them. Are you familiar with crowdfunding?

Basically the ex-offenders will use their own initiative to try and come up with creative ideas to raise money for charity. They will upload their projects to the site and hope that the projects are funded by the public. They will then use the money raised to carry out their individual charity projects or the money will be sent directly to the choosen charity.

Before any ex-offenders are allowed to post a project on the site they will have to provide identification which will be held on file incase of any wrong doing. Also all projects will be manually approved before they are published. They will also have to post updates of their projects progress and evidence of what the money has been used for.

If the ex-offender wanted to run a criminal or fraudulent campaign it would be a whole lot easier to do it on one of the hundreds of other crowdfunding sites that do not have these additional security measures in place and without advertising to the world that they are ex-offenders.

Nothing is totally full proof but we have tried to address the valid security concerns as best we can.

Crypto should be used in all ways good or bad just like any other money, not that that is even an issue.  Good on you for trying to do some good in the world.

Thanks, I appreciate your comments Smiley

Hmm, I like the idea but I am a bit skeptical...
Is there some kind of criteria for offenders in order to "reform" them?
Or any offender can just join in?

That is an excellent question.

The OP wants to raise money to help "reform" offenders a.k.a. criminals with the use of crypto.

Though it might sound like a good idea to some, I find it horrible and bad publicity for Bitcoin.
Bitcoin has enough connections with crime as it is.

You want to help the world and use crypto to do it then feed the hungry.
Give shelter to the homeless.

Not money to criminals.

What the fuck is wrong with you?

I am not saying they don't deserve a second chance, and that IS NOT what you are offering them.
If they want a second chance they have to work for it, and that literally means work for it.
And I am not saying that all offenders are the same.
But I think you get my point.

Also, why convert crypto to GBP?
Why not keep it in crypto so that all transactions are transparent?

Hey guys,


I would like to make you aware of a crowdfunding project I have been helping out with, that is being run by a friend of mine and his partner on Indiegogo.

They are accepting Bitcoin and Dogecoin contributions (thanks to me  Wink) which they will then convert to GBP and add to campaign total. All "perks" will remain the same as when using standard fiat currency.

I will copy and paste a short summary of the concept below so you get an idea of what it is all about-


Summary


The concept is simple-

To give ex-offenders a platform to raise money for good, and in turn make them feel better about themselves and reduce the chance of them re-offending.

We want to create a robust and user-friendly crowdfunding platform that allows ex-offenders to set up projects to raise money for good. This could be a sponsored run or boxing match, a youth or community project, or even setting up their own charity or social enterprise. It is all down to individual creativity!

The ex-offenders will be in charge of organising, promoting and executing their projects giving them a real sense of responsibility  and satisfaction. We will simply provide the platform for them to do this.

We strongly believe that giving people this sense of responsibility and seeing the good they have achieved through their own projects will greatly reduce the chance of them re-offending.

Benefits for ex-offenders?

* Gives ex-offenders something positive to work on and focus on.

* Something interesting to put on their CVs  improving  employment prospects.

* Feelings of personal satisfaction.

* Proof that they can achieve a great deal if they do things the right way.

* An opportunity to give something back to society.

Benefits for society at large?

* Reduced levels of crime.

* Diverse good causes will benefit from money raised in the campaigns.

* Satisfaction in the knowledge that people really can change.


Anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated guys Smiley If you can't afford to contribute you can still help by sharing on your social media channels and helping to spread the word.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post Smiley
