Bitcoin Cash Argentina, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to increasing cryptocurrency awareness and adoption in the country, has reached its second milestone by using Flipstarter to fund a new circular economy campaign. With the goal of onboarding 250 merchants in the near future, this new campaign goes even further.
Argentina’s Bitcoin Cash Funds Its Second Crowdfunding Campaign
Bitcoin Cash Argentina, a nonprofit organization that seeks to increase the knowledge and adoption of bitcoin cash (BCH) in Argentina, has successfully funded its second Flipstarter campaign, receiving 250 bitcoin cash to support its operations for the next proposed set of goals. Bitcoin Cash Argentina expressed gratitude to everyone who donated to reach this milestone via its official Twitter account. Roger Ver and Marcelo Fleischer, also known as Majamalu, an Argentinian Bitcoin Cash supporter, both donated to the initiative.
Now, Bitcoin Cash Argentina is proposing to broaden its reach even further by using the new funds to onboard the next 150 merchants in the country over the next 180 days. It has also proposed bringing remittance operations to propose the use of Bitcoin Cash for this function.
Adoption Map Update
Bitcoin Cash Argentina also mentions the development of a new adoption map, which will show Argentinians where to find businesses that accept bitcoin cash in exchange for their services. According to the proposal, “we are working on incorporating a new search engine into our website that simplifies directing clients to merchants that accept bitcoin cash in Argentina.” Our goal is for users to have a frictionless experience when searching for and selecting a merchant in Argentina that accepts bitcoin cash.
While similar tools exist, most are out of date with the most recent business moves, and many users can become frustrated when they go to a store that claims to accept bitcoin cash only to discover that it does not. Bitcoin Cash Argentina’s strategy is to reduce this possibility by running its own map tool, which is maintained by its team.
Using the funds from its first Flisptarter campaign, the organization has already onboarded more than 100 merchants, including K24, a convenience store chain with more than 80 PoS across the country. The team also coordinated meetings with K24’s suppliers, paving the way for B2B bitcoin cash-based transactions between these companies.
