Leveraging blockchain to track the donation and resale of pre-loved luxury goods
Integrating the use of blockchain technology to effortlessly track which items are donated, how much they’re re-sold for, and how much each donor contributed.
2018 LUXARITY Hong Kong Pop-up
Nonprofits face serious challenges regarding trust: About one-third of Americans don’t trust charitable groups to spend their funds well, and more than 60% of people globally don’t have faith that groups can accomplish their missions.
However, nonprofits with a proven transparency record average 53% more in contributions compared to organizations that don’t have a similar track record.
Working with LUXARITY, I both architected and engineered a web application and API that could empower pop-up consumers to allocate their sales revenue to certain grantee initiatives and track every re-sold items to provide item donors with 100% fundraising transparency.
What We Delivered
Together, we established a blockchain-based platform that brings unprecedented transparency and accountability into the tracking of charitable donations. On the platform, customers have the opportunity to decide which cause their donations would fund — including education on ethical consumption, environmental causes, and recycling efforts.
