Information technology and telecommunications
Our organization has established an account with Coinbase, a web platform and we are accepting donations in Bitcoins. None of our team members understand the digital currency and how to seek out donations. The successful volunteer will be a teacher and consultant and would not engage in any fundraising. We want to engage people outside the current financial systems as supporters and donors to a worthy cause.
