A cashless society that is inclusive for all.
GivingStreets fosters solidarity in a cashless society by enabling spontaneous, instant cashless donations using a combination of smartphones and QR codes.
The future of money is digital. In 2018, only 34% of all transactions in the UK were cash and this number is set to decline as we move towards becoming a cashless society*. Buskers, rough-sleepers and charity workers have been excluded from this shift and are now facing further reductions on their already unstable income. We aim to bridge the cashless divide and build the first humanitarian technology platform with the sole purpose of maximizing the impact of micro-donations, creating a society that is inclusive to all.
Our app requires beneficiaries to carry a unique GivingStreets QR code card, which can be scanned when someone is wanting to make cashless donations via the GivingStreets app. The beneficiaries can then redeem the donations at partnering retailers. This solution requires no technology on the receiver’s side and our private blockchain guarantees transparency and traceability of all donations.
