Once or twice a week, our team will publish articles on GrantMarket about a charity or nonprofit organization, artist or musician, or other #grantworthy person or organization. Readers who are inspired to support them can click a button to send GRT through Twitter, or copy a specific wallet address and send them GRT using a Grantcoin wallet on your computer or smartphone.
Each article on GrantMarket will also have a Bitcoin donation button powered by Coinbase, and a PayPal button for people who wish to donate using U.S. dollars. Users who choose these options will be making a tax-deductible donation to the Grantcoin Foundation, and our organization will send the equivalent amount of GRT to your intended recipient.
Later this year, GrantMarket will also begin featuring socially and environmentally conscious businesses, and people will be able to spend Grantcoin to buy gift cards or coupons at those businesses — similar to a customer loyalty points program.
“We’re excited to launch GrantMarket because we believe it’s essential for alternative currencies to have a real-world purpose,” said Grantcoin founder Eric Stetson. “Our goal is to develop Grantcoin and GrantMarket into an economic network for social good.”
People who wish to acquire Grantcoin to use on GrantMarket may donate to the Grantcoin Foundation and receive a Grantcoin starter kit with software, coins, and instructions. We match all donations with an equivalent donation of GRT to the charity of your choice. Grantcoin can also be purchased on exchanges.
