After seeing so many headlines about the tragedy that the people of Puerto Rico are facing today due to the effects of Hurricane Maria, we felt like something had to be done. Surely, most of us want to help in whatever way we can. In most cases, going to PR and lending a hand is very difficult for the average person as well as donating money. So we thought up of a way to raise money (and continuously!) to help these people in need with the advent of a digital currency known as Monero. And the best part is that you don't even have to spend a single cent. Mine for Puerto Rico allows anyone who goes onto our website to dedicate a portion (anywhere from 0-100%) of their CPU processing power to mine for digital currency, allowing the user to use their computers at ease while their CPU is mining for digital currency in the background. This is a great way for the common computer user with an internet connection to raise funds to help out in this very urgent humanitarian crisis so the more users we get to go onto the site, the more amount of money that gets generated!
To really make an impact (and we cannot stress this enough) this would have to be a COLLECTIVE EFFORT.
The funds collected will be stored into a digital wallet and All the proceeds will go to United for Puerto Rico, an initiative brought forth by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló in collaboration with the private sector, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María.
