REAL8 supports non-profit organizations (NPOs) dedicated to furthering social causes, especially those with a particular focus on technology, cultural values and education. Preference will be given to projects that operate in any scientific, research, or tertiary fields with real-life applications. We believe in teaching people to fish and perhaps providing the fishing rod (or at least providing the means to manufacture one), rather than feed them the fish.
Key aspects we value most from nonprofits are accountability, trustworthiness, honesty, and openness to every person who has invested time, money, and faith into the organization. NPOs must be accountable to the donors, funders, volunteers, program recipients, and the public community.
In order to qualify for our support the organization must use its surplus revenues to further achieve its ultimate objectives, rather than distributing its income to the organization’s shareholders, leaders, or members.
Public confidence is an important factor in the amount of funds that the nonprofit organization will be able to raise from REAL8. The more nonprofits focus on their mission will ultimately repercute on the public confidence they will have, and as a result the greater the chance of raising more money for the organization.
Below are listed the organizations that have been selected for the first round of the initial coin offering. Each one of them will receive an unspecified amount of REAL8 coins during our initial Token Sale, that can be invested in selected specific projects carried out by those organizations, or stored within our SDEX Distributed Exchange until higher values are reached that allow funding of larger projects.
