Thanks everyone to support us!
AidCoin is the token for charitable giving,
built on Ethereum Blockchain and powered by CharityStars.
Problem & Solution
Crypto adoption by charities is currently zero, with only a few charities accepting bitcoin. On the other hand, public trust in charities has fallen to its lowest level since 2005, with more than half of the general public skeptical about donating to charities.
Our goal is to solve those problems and help charities to raise more money. Using distributed ledgers to track transactions, cryptocurrencies to transfer funds and smart contracts to ensure donations are spent correctly, Blockchain has the potential to impact the whole non-profit sector.
Who We Are
AidCoin is backed by CharityStars, a proven team that can implement the promise of Blockchain in the nonprofit world.
Leveraging the power of technology, media and celebrity, we have raised over $10M in charity auctions, supporting 500 organizations including Unicef, Save the Children and WWF.
VC backed, we are a team of 25 people across three countries.
Our Celebrity Supporters
CharityStars collaborates with hundreds of global celebrities such as Metallica, Valentino Rossi, Jessie J, Novak Djokovic, Eva Longoria, Cristiano Ronaldo, etc.
AidCoin is an ERC20 token that will become the preferred method of giving and paying service fees throughout the non profit ecosystem. AidCoin has put the basis for a real token economy where all the participants are incentivazed to buy and keep the token.
The online donation market is $15bn in the US alone. The rapid adoption of cryptocurrencies will definitely impact the way to donate in the future and AidCoin is set to play a leading role in this new era of fundraising. Learn more

The First Adoption

Why do you need a new token?
We decided to create a specific nonprofit token for several reasons:
- The token is used to pay service fees on CharityStars, AIDChain and AIDPay.
- Nonprofit is a particular sector with specific dynamics, so the idea is to create a token that is easily identifiable with the industry.
- We want to be independent from other currencies in terms of image, monetary policy, governance, price dynamics and future technological choices.
- We aim to align investors and donors motivations, and leverage positive and charitable behaviours from the different actors involved in the cryptospace.
