Welcome to worlunteers.org – Foreword of the chairman
My name is Kay Schroeder and I am the founder and chairman of Worlunteers e.V. a Vienna based NGO and operator of the Crypto Economy Fundraising Portal. A game changer in financial solutions and a completely new way of societal thinking. (for Google SEO reasons: foreword of the chairman – ignore that)
Worlunteers came up to my mind when I worked as a Human Rights Instructor for Amnesty International. During that time I experienced that volunteers are often marginalized groups, mainly women and minorities. Therefore I decided to improve the undervalued work of volunteering and thus the situation of the volunteers themselves.
It came up to my mind that money is always an issue. It is an issue for the organizations and for the volunteers despite they are expected to work for free. The usual way of raising funds occurred me like begging. Not valuing work and effort at all. So I decided that this attitude has to change. But I realized that people are not that much interested in donating. That lead me to the obvious conclusion that they want to be rewarded for their investment. Consequently I set up worlunteers.org as a financial portal.
Social Capital and soca.market
Hence I started to comprehend donors as investors who are not just generous but also expect a return on investment. The cryptocurrency evolution offered a proper solution to solve the ROI problem. So I created the Social Capital Token on the Ethereum blockchain to pay it out to each investor. Since it does not have any value itself I needed to setup a market place. This market place is called soca.market and offers art work in exchange for Social Capital. A new economy was born. The Crypto Economy Fundraising.
Today Worlunteers e.V. operates social media channels on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Telegram and many more. We visit volunteers, shoot videos, create profiles, take care of investors and acquire investments. We run the Crypto Token “Social Capital”, promote art & culture, search for new artists for the soca.market art portal and spread the idea of volunteering worldwide. We are an unsalaried project that is open to everyone. Free but not for nothing.
