How to donate
Do I need my own Ethereum (ETH) wallet?
To track all the completed transactions, every user needs to provide the Ethereum wallet address, from where he will send the donations. Users can always change their Ethereum address in the Dashboard.
Does your platform accept only ETH?
The CHERR.IO Platform is currently accepting donations only in Ethereum (ETH). In the near future we will add support for other cryptocurrencies and fiat as well.
What are the fees? Is there a charge?
The only fee is GAS that donors pay. GAS is required for Ethereum transaction to be successfully completed.
How can I donate in ETH?
Every campaign has its own unique Ethereum wallet address to which the donor sends ETH. Once the transaction is confirmed, the platform automatically adds it to the donation history and updates progress of the campaign.
What do I get from donating?
Besides helping and potentially saving someone’s life, every donation is rewarded with Proof Of Charity points. These points will enable higher bonuses in our crowdsale process.
What is Proof Of Charity?
Proof Of Charity is a loyalty program for registered users, who are actively participating on the CHERR.IO Platform. Users that promote charitable giving on social networks or donate to active campaigns are rewarded with points. Current point balance is visible in the Dashboard in the “Proof of Charity” section.
How can I track where my money goes?
Every campaign is fully transparent and has a public ledger with a complete transaction history. Donors can also see their personal contributions under the “Backed Campaigns” section in the Dashboard.
Can an organization collect funds in fiat currencies (USD or EUR)?
No, currently an organization can collect funds only in Ethereum. Every organization will have an unique wallet address, where the collected funds will be stored separately for each campaign.
- How do organizations get a Ethereum wallet address?
What do organizations need to do before launching a campaign?
Before launching, organizations have to create a new Ethereum wallet address for each new campaign.
How should an organization present a new project?
An organization’s project should be presented as a campaign that contains a title, description, full story, estimated funds to raise, images and video (if available). Before the campaign is listed on the platform, all provided information will be processed by our support team.
How long should an organizations run their campaign?
The length of a campaign depends on the estimated funds to raise, however, we recommend that a campaign lasts at least 30 days.
Can campaigns raise more than their goal?
No. A campaign is finished once the time expires or enough funds are raised.
When a campaign is finished, what do organizations need to in order to receive the funds?
Organizations will receive funds in their Ethereum wallet. We can also help with the transfer to fiat currency.
