As per Bitcoin Development Fund for Human Rights, Crypto is for people

Its an obvious fact that the bitcoin organize has been vigorously censured for shortcoming both perceived and genuine in regards to its application, use, and need. The network and its locale despite everything have a lot of work ahead to demonstrate the enduring sturdiness and pragmatic ease of use. In spite of the fact that questions of scale and security are real, the Human Rights Foundation's (HRF) new award program concentrating on bitcoin advancement shows that the oversight safe, unconfiscatable properties inborn to bitcoin have been perceived by the HRF as instrumental to crafted by activists, columnists, NGOs, and residents in politically repressed systems over the globe.



In acknowledgment of the primary significance of bitcoin to the fate of human rights work, the HRF declared the principal award under and launch of the Bitcoin Development Fund. As per a release by the HRF:


“An initial gift from the fund was given to Chris Belcher, a UK-based developer working on a technique called “CoinSwap” (originally invented in 2013 by Greg Maxwell) which helps defeat state and corporate financial surveillance by making it much harder for authorities to trace Bitcoin transactions. Previous to his work on CoinSwap, Belcher invented JoinMarket and Electrum Personal Server and wrote the authoritative Bitcoin Privacy guide. He is regarded as one of the world’s foremost experts in Bitcoin privacy.”


The HRF has been profoundly involved with the topics of bitcoin and security for quite a while. Not just has chief methodology official Alex Gladstein spoken about it in various podcasts, however, the HRF also eats its own cooking, accepting bitcoin for donations since 2014. That is OG status by practically any measure in crypto circles. 


While making the development of security-focused tools for bitcoin is an honorable interest, if the HRF would like to see the sort of omnipresent, easy to use, private, accessible, and solid services in the bitcoin biological system that it needs, it will take some time and more than the effectively liberal initial $50,000 donation.


In spite of the fact that it is basically difficult to derive an accurate number of bitcoin clients, the quantity of wallet addresses gives the most stretched out net to estimation. As indicated by economic statistics firm Statista, there were 47.14 million blockchain wallet clients worldwide as of Q1 2020. Numerous clients have various locations, and numerous locations are likewise abandoned. In any event, taking the crude wallet tends to number at face esteem, obviously, bitcoin could profit by the development work being supported by the HRF so as to build a progressively vigorous network to more readily serve the individuals who need bitcoin's tech most.
