The SHELTERCOIN Foundation has been created to issue altruistic digital tokens (alt-coins) to raise funds to provide shelter for disaster response and preparedness around the world.
When disaster strikes, time is critical. It takes time for relief teams to be mobilized, for ships to come in and be unloaded onto trucks, for paperwork to be processed,for funds to be raised and currencies to be converted, for camps to be set up.
Survivors don’t have time, their need for shelter is immediate but bureaucracy sometimes creates more problems than it solves. We think there is a better way.
In the last few years we have been on the front lines of earthquakes, forest fires, and other disasters that have caused people to lose everything. We’ve put together a team of Super First Responders, the best of the best with decades of experience at disaster relief. We’ve created a new product, a 40-foot shipping container with everything needed for an instant relief camp for up to 1600 people.
Our technology has been praised by FEMA and the US military, and right now we have people in need of relief asking us for containers. We are raising money in a Token Sale Event (TSE) to buy as many containers as we can as quickly as we can, because there are a lot of people out there who need them.
Uniting the community together with a new digital token SHELTERCOIN means that whenever disaster strikes, anywhere in the world, we will have a highly secure way to raise funds from like minded people who want to make a difference, and make sure that people in need receive aid quickly and directly. We can reward Response Teams in SHELTERCOIN, and by offering substantial discounts in online marketing campaigns we hope to encourage active and frequent use of our alt-coin.
Catastrophes don’t discriminate between rich and poor, they don’t see races or borders. We are all at risk. Some of us are in a position to help others with skills, with time, with money. Ethereum smart contracts and the security of the distributed blockchain ledger make it possible to bring everyone together with new types of alt-coin. SHELTERCOIN channels this energy into a much-needed physical world product
