Organizations like Unicef do a lot of good work across the globe but they always need funds to keep doing what they’re doing. These organizations are always looking out for new fundraising opportunities and now Unicef Australia has embraced cryptocurrency mining as it seeks to raise more funds to support its activities.

To aid its fundraising efforts, Unicef Australia has announced The Hopepage. It’s a browser-based cryptocurrency mining platform which will leverage a third-party PC’s processing power to mine digital currency.

It’s the same method that a lot of websites have been quietly employing to mine cryptocurrencies for their own benefit. However, in most cases, those websites don’t tell visitors about it so they technically hijack their CPUs to mine digital currency.

Unicef Australia’s Hopepage clearly states that it will use some of the readers’ computer processing power to automatically generate funds for Unicef Australia. The mining only starts once the visitor clicks on “Start Donating,” and they will be able to select how much processing power they want to be used for this task.

“The Hopepage allows Australians to provide help and hope to vulnerable children by simply opening the page while they are online,” said Unicef Australia director of fundraising and communications Jennifer Tierney.
