Review on UNICEF Funding OpportunityIf youve got a start-up registered in one of UNICEFs programme countries and have a working, open source prototype (or you are willing to make it open-source) showing promising results, the UNICEF Innovation Fund is looking for you.
Who were looking for:
We are currently looking to invest in a group of companies developing software solutions on open blockchains. Examples of these include, but are not limited to:
Exploring how crypto tokens work to incentivize or support behaviour that benefits humanity (community tokens, reward systems, token economic models)
Utilizing digital scarcity, non-fungible tokens, or digital collectibles for social good (tracking of physical assets, digital credentials, etc.)
Creating a more user-friendly experience for onboarding new users, in multiple languages, and accessible (ex. low literacy)
Offering various custodianship models to manage keys, considering infrastructure considerations such as low connectivity, lack of smartphones, etc.
Reducing the cost, and increasing the speed of transactions to enable a larger group of participants in the ecosystem
Exploring the interoperability of tokens across various blockchain platforms to enable independent communities to come together to leverage their collective market power
Establishing global marketplaces for tokens to be exchanged at any given time from any given location
Using smart contracts to replicate and improve on existing organizational mechanisms
Enabling efficiencies, transparency, and accountability in contractual engagements (i.e. multi-sig contracts that guarantee certain actors were involved)
Applying various on-chain / off-chain governance solutions (e.g. validating users before they join DAOs, managing the custodianship of funds)
Low Fidelity Cryptography
Building solutions for low infrastructure areas, such as low/no connectivity, intermittent/lack of electricity, no mobile phones
