The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) has partnered with the custodian startup Casa to protect donations and fund resources held at BTC.
Casa, a company specializing in the secure storage of bitcoins, has announced a partnership with the Human Rights Foundation to help activists and dissidents around the world protect their crypto assets that are used to combat human rights violations.
Recall that last month, Casa introduced the new security-oriented wallet, Casa Wallet, suitable for both novice and experienced cryptocurrency users. HRF will use Casa’s solutions to protect incoming donations at BTC.
The fund will also use Casa tools to protect funds that were contributed to the recently created special fund, aimed at supporting developers creating solutions for anonymizing transactions in the Bitcoin network. HRF Strategy Director Alex Gladstein said:
“Bitcoin has tremendous potential to help activists raise funds to combat human rights violations in difficult political conditions. However, storing them in a safe but affordable way has always been a problem. Using software such as Casa, organizations can keep their BTC safe and secure, with complete control, without the risk of losing money due to an error. It is imperative that activists control the private keys of their BTC and can always transfer funds to where they are needed. ”
In addition, as part of the partnership, Casa will provide educational resources for activists and non-profit organizations, including participating in Fund workshops. Casa CEO Nick Neuman said:
“Unfortunately, human rights organizations are faced with unique problems when it comes to managing their funds, including freezing bank accounts. But Bitcoin is changing the rules of the game. It allows activists to receive and spend money so that governments and corporations cannot control them. ”
