Send Grantcoin on Twitter!

 
Grantcoin (GRT) is a digital currency that’s distributed into circulation by a charitable nonprofit organization as a Universal Basic Income for everyone in the world who chooses to participate.

The Grantcoin Foundation believes that the system of how money works should be designed for the public benefit, to help reduce poverty and inequality. We believe that whenever money is created and distributed into circulation, it should go to everyone equally — so we have created an alternative currency based on these principles.

Anyone on Twitter can send and receive Grantcoin without needing to download or install any software. You can use your Twitter account as a web-based Grantcoin wallet and send the currency with a simple tweet!
 

What Can I Do with Grantcoin?

  • Pay it forward. Grantcoin is perfect for social tipping and microgrants. Whenever you see a tweet you especially like, or a person, organization or cause you want to support, show them they’re #grantworthy by tweeting them some Grantcoin.
     
  • Save it as an investment. Grantcoin is very new — it only launched in May 2015. As more and more people learn about it and begin to use it, its value might increase. Grantcoin is an innovative idea, both technologically and in terms of the socioeconomic philosophy of the currency, which is about building a people-powered alternative monetary system to create a more just, humane, and sustainable world economy. If you like the idea and believe it has long-term potential, you might want to save some GRT for the future.

You can also exchange Grantcoin for Bitcoin on online exchanges.

As time goes on, we hope to persuade businesses to accept Grantcoin as a form of payment or as a coupon. The more people have Grantcoin, the more likely this will be to happen.
