What is the Request Network?

Request is a decentralized network that allows anyone to request a payment. It removes the need for trusted third-parties and provides a cheaper and more secure payment solution that works with both crypto and fiat currencies.

At NeedsList, we have been streamlining the process of getting supplies and cash into the hands of frontline disaster and aid groups through our platform, which allows donors to purchase supplies directly from local businesses to be sent to the field. Since we launched a year ago, donors have directed hundreds of thousands of dollars in resources–including supplies, donations, and volunteer hours–to hundreds of small aid organizations around the world doing effective, often overlooked humanitarian work. For us, the catastrophic disasters of 2017 were a wake up call. We didn’t only want to do more–we needed to do more. The increase in the number of natural disasters calls for new tech-enabled solutions to get money to where it’s needed more quickly than ever, and with more transparency.

Today, we’re excited to launch a blockchain-enabled Disaster Response Campaign in partnership with Project Bifröst, a cryptocurrency payment system that’s making humanitarian aid response cheaper, faster, and more effective. Project Bifröst is the first venture created by ConsenSys Social Impact, a venture that uses Ethereum to create blockchain-based solutions to tackle urgent humanitarian needs.

For the first time, people can donate the Dai stablecoin (created by MakerDAO), a price-stabilized cryptocurrency pegged to the U.S. dollar, towards disaster relief and preparedness efforts in the U.S. and abroad. This means that for the first time, there is a value associated with crypto donations that is stable and not prone to fluctuation, which is the hallmark of other cryptocurrencies.

Request Donations seamlessly allows Needlist.co to accept DAI donations directly on their own website, no technical worries, no expensive overheads, no complex integrations just a simple, easy to implement solution that works. As MakerDAO have said: “Thanks for making this so easy!”.
