Watsi Ventures Into The Bitcoin Space
Whenever a global initiative is launched to provide healthcare to this struggling financially, it only makes sense to accept a global payment option as well. At the same time, these organizations need to accept as many popular payment options as possible. After all, not everyone in the world uses Bitcoin, although that could be a matter of time.
Watsi allows donors to met a patient who needs a life-changing form of healthcare. They can then move on to donate any amount to the good cause, starting at US$5. Donors will also receive an update after their patient receives health care,t o keep tabs on how they are doing while in recovery.
