UNICEF CryptoFund: Exploring Blockchain and How it Could Change Futures for the Most Vulnerable
10-11, 17:40–17:50 (America/Bogota), Talk 1

This session will showcase how UNICEF’s Office of Innovation is exploring the use of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, and how these might have an impact on the work that UNICEF does. It will also present the trajectory and results to date of the UNICEF CryptoFund, the first vehicle in the United Nations ecosystem to receive, hold, and disburse crypto, which makes equity-free investments into technology startups within developing countries that are working to improve lives of children.

At UNICEF's Office of Innovation, I focus on partnerships and donor relations to advance the impact and advocacy efforts #ForEveryChild.
