         Bitcoin Giving Back: This Week on Decentral Talk Live

A common theme among bitcoiners is the desire to make the world a better place. This week, Decentral Talk Live focuses on a couple of organizations that are trying to do just that.

Connie Gallippi is the Founder and Executive Director of the BitGive Foundation and a founding member of the Women’s Crypto Association. This week on DTL, Connie describes some of the many projects that the BitGive Foundation has been involved in, especially in Africa. They include Medic Mobile, Save the Children and the Water Project. She also discusses the role she played in getting ChangeTip to add the charitable donation option to their service.

Connie then addresses the issue of inclusion and how the Women’s Crypto Association is ensuring that women’s viewpoints are being well represented in the crypto space.

Another woman making a point of incorporating bitcoin into charitable giving is Anne Connelly, director of fundraising and marketing at Dignitas International; and former fundraising manager at Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders Ireland. Through her work with Dignitas International, she has helped to raise funds for the Tisungane HIV/AIDS Clinic in Malawi. Anne also addresses the increasingly important role of bitcoin in Somalia, a country with a huge remittance market.

Other guests this week include Flavien Charlon, Founder and CEO ofCoinprism, who introduces viewers to the world of colored coins; Radislav Albreicht of BitBond, a peer-to-peer lending platform that allows borrowers to access affordable funding without needing a bank, while lenders earn higher interest rates on their savings; and finally, the always entertaining Tatiana Moroz, bitcoin evangelist, singer/songwriter and author.

Decentral Talk Live airs new episodes on decentral.tv at 3:00 pm EST, Monday – Friday.
