Do you believe in the positive potential of cryptocurrency? Ideas Beyond Borders (IBB) needs your philanthropic support to help transform the Middle East!
Cryptocurrencies are poised to undermine the power of the Middle East’s authoritarians, who for too long have held back their people. There are two key reasons:
Regional activists desperately need cryptocurrency to advance their work. Our activists take many risks in promoting social change. Cryptocurrency will enable activists to work without interference.
Banking the unbanked will create economic opportunity. Weak financial systems, corruption, and authoritarians hold the region back. Widening the availability of cryptocurrency and exchanges will promote entrepreneurship.
IBB supports the use of cryptocurrencies, encrypted messaging services, and online privacy protection in the Middle East because they help protect and support the free exchange of ideas, empower women and minorities, promote entrepreneurship, and provide banking to the unbanked throughout the region.
