Helen Hai's 2019:
The Binance Charity Foundation has accomplished a lot in its mission to use blockchain as a tool for social good, with numerous projects and alliances in action. In alliance with 46 other companies, BCF launched the charitable stablecoin project Pink Care Token (PCAT), with the goal of providing feminine hygiene products to millions of women who otherwise couldn't afford or access them. Another long-term project of BCF is the Binance Lunch for Children project, which provides year-long support to Ugandan students and solar panels for their schools.
What Cointelegraph expects for 2020:
We expect BCF will continue launching various social impact projects around the globe throughout 2020 with Hai at the helm. Not only will this further showcase the power of crypto and borderless payments in humanitarian endeavors, but it will also support the fact that emerging technologies can heal the world while disrupting incumbent institutions.
