To date, the crypto fund has funded 8 startups with 125ETH each, and this year plans to invest in more innovative projects from emerging markets that are associated with humanity. Innovations concerning African crypto / blockchain are encouraged to compete for the funds.

Crypto Research Fund UNICEF accepts applications from:
