#135 Nodes for Charity [withdrawn by author]

By Shiradi


[withdrawn] All SmartCash received from nodes will be exchanged to dollars and donated to Make a Wish Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, and as the need arises (in the cases of natural disasters) other charities in the name of the SmartCash Community.


note: the proposer have withdrawn this proposal. the amount had been adjusted to reflect a "0" value.

the information below is a history of the originally drafted proposal for informational purposes only. 


Amount: 53,000 SmartCash

Timeline: January 11th 2018

Total Hours expected for project to complete: As long as it takes to setup the nodes.

Proposal Goal: To help bridge the gap between charities and the crypto community and specifically, the SmartCash community. 5 Nodes will be created on or around January 11, 2018. Unless the date for smartnodes change, in that case the funds will be held until nodes can be created. Profits from the 5 nodes will be used for donations to Make a Wish Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, and as the need arises (in the cases of natural disasters) other charities in the name of the SmartCash Community. Payouts will be when they reach the minimum amount to donate. On Make a Wish’s site it shows minimum as $50 and is the same for Doctors Without Borders. So once total node profit reaches $100 + transaction costs / fee’s associated with conversion, payment to charities will be made.

SmartCaring: https://www.smartcaring.cc/  a website I will be running to accept crypto for charities. I will post transaction ID's, exchange rate at the time of exchange, along with receipts from charities after donations are made. The website will be updated to better quality in the near future.

Make A Wish foundation - “Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.” http://wish.org/about-us#sm.001ezgwla154kcxgq8x208emccfkn

Doctors Without Borders - is an international humanitarian non-governmental organization (NGO) best known for its projects in war-torn regions and developing countries affected by endemic diseases. In 2015, over 30,000 personnel — mostly local doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, logistical experts, water and sanitation engineers and administrators — provided medical aid in over 70 countries. The vast majority of staff are volunteers. http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/

Who Am I? Chad Gowens https://www.linkedin.com/in/cgowens/

Whats my goal here? I have worked in the medical field for years and have seen first hand how these charities can help people. I hope through long term donation and conversation, we can work towards charities accepting cryptocurrencies as a means of funding.

What are your credentials? CCMA, BLS/ACLS, Prior Service FMF Corpsman, HM2 / US Navy

Why are you qualified for SmartHive funding? I am qualified because I have experience with charities and working in the medical field. I have volunteered for animal shelters and at Children’s of Alabama - https://www.childrensal.org/

Items: 50,000 SmartCash to start nodes.

5 VPS’s running smartnodes. Cost of VPS $5-$10 / month

Total Cost in dollars: $20,500 / 0.41 cents per SMART, $5-$10 / month for 2 years of hosting $1200.

Grand Total: $21,700.
Grant Total SMART: 53,000

Possible FAQs: Payments to charities will be split equally and only once total node profit reaches $100+. I will market the charity site with my own funds. The website will not be funded with anything from this proposal. It will be used only to show proof of payment to charities.

Conclusions: I have alot of experience in the medical field and a passion for helping those in need. I believe in philanthropy and charitable works. I don’t believe in needing a reason to help someone. These donations will be made in the name of the SmartCash Community and I believe it is a noble cause.

Any questions or comments are appreciated, I can be reached in the SmartCash discord @Shiradi

Thank You

    How is the community going to track that the income generated from the Nodes is utilised correctly. Please explain the audit mechanism.

    Example: I will be posting Bitcoin / Litecoin / BitcoinCash / Ethereum addresses that will be used for conversion to fiat on coinbase as well as cryptopia addresses. All new addresses with no transactions. I will post all 5 addresses that will receive the 10,000 SMART for the 5 nodes. For purposes of ease, we'll use small numbers. Say all 5 nodes receive 10 smartcash for a total of 50 smartcash. I will send the 50 SMART to cryptopia smartcash address which will be able to be seen on the ledger. 5 Addresses will be sending 10 smartcash each to 1 Cryptopia address, after conversion to Bitcoin / Litecoin / Bitcoin Cash / Ethereum, the coins will be sent to Coinbase where they will be converted to fiat and deposited into bank account that will be used to donate to the charities. Because the ledgers will timestamp, anyone can go and look at the conversion rates on the exchange at any given time. the ledgers will show whether funds were misallocated to another address or whether they still remain on the 5 node addresses. I will also be posting pictures and totaling all transaction fee's + transaction ID's that can be used to search on the website i provided. anyone that wishes to investigate can easily take a transaction ID from the 5 addresses and look it up on the site to see receipt of payment to charities and total amount donated. While I agree it would take alittle work on someones part to look into due to it being sent to different addresses across different cryptos, everything will be able to be accounted for. I plan to release the addresses, transaction id's, receipt of payment, and screenshots of any abnormalities, like a big increase in transaction fee's, or fee's from an exchange. even though they are usually a flat rate the transaction fee's aren't so. I will try to save costs where possible with fee's by using whichever alt coin has the lowest fee's when it's time to convert to fiat.

    This is really stupid and borderline Scandalous.

    We cannot keep tracking every project that comes along the way. Keep it simple. No one will track and all the money will be miss used in the future. SMARTCASH community proposal is the Charity. We do not need bundled subset of Charity which we cannot or forced to track. NO NO NO NO from all my accounts

    This proposal is treating the system like a fat cashcow.

  • Younglegend 01/06/2018 04:40
