 Why Cryptocurrencies like Christ Coin Makes Sense for Global Humanitarian Organizations

Why Cryptocurrencies like Christ Coin Makes Sense for Global Humanitarian Organizations

Posted on November 06, 2017

Humanitarian organizations are the lifeline of millions of people around the world living in poverty, facing refugee crisis, and facing other emergencies that are triggered by nature or triggered by various economic, social, or political conditions.

Yet the current system designed for transfer of money is such that millions of dollars donated to these organizations are lost as currency conversion fees and other bank processing fees. With the advent of cryptocurrency, these fees can be a thing of the past. This is because the technology behind cryptocurrency allows the digital currency to be transferred from account to account without the need to engage any bank. Additionally, the change from one currency to another can be instantaneous – hence reducing the day to day currency fluctuation risk exposure.
Christ Coin is a digital currency that offers the money saving advantages of cryptocurrency BUT offer other advantages: (1) It was created for the very purpose that many humanitarian organizations exist – to revive hope, repair lives, and rebuild dreams. (2) It allows the humanitarian organization to earn extra income as part of the Life Change Platform. 
If you are a humanitarian organization, I encourage you to look at the white paper and marketing deck at www.christcoins.io. How much more could you do in places like that are devastated by Hurricanes Puerto Rice and St Johns simply by saving on banking fee’s? How many more people could you reach simply by partnering with an organization like Life Change? How much more effective could your organization be simply by leveraging the latest technology to speed up funds transfer, thereby enhance your field operations and response time.
You owe it to the people you love and desire to help the most to consider incorporating cryptocurrency in your plans.

The Life Change Platform Can Help You Meet Humanitarian Needs

The Life Change Platform Can Help You Meet Humanitarian Needs

Posted on November 06, 2017

I usually change the channel when an advert comes on T.V from some humanitarian organizations or pet organizations about donating funds to help meet some need. I change the channel not because I do not want to help. I change it because I do not have the means to help and I feel bad because there is nothing I can do to help. I can’t go to the mission field and give of my time because I have a family that depend on me. I can’t give of my resources because I sometimes run out of money before the end of the month. 
This was before a friend told me about a company called Life Change. 
Life Change has introduced a digital currency or coin that can be earned on their Life Change Platform and then donated to any organization on the platform. Even if the organization is not on the platform, the earns funds can be cashed out and donated to any organization of your choosing. The heart behind Life Change and how the platform works with the currency in some detail in the white paper and marketing deck which can be found on their website, www.christcoins.io   
I am excited about the Life Change Platform coming online because I feel like I will be able to make an impact on the world without taking away from my family. This is truly a win-win for me.
Check it out and let me know what you think 

How a Christian Humanitarian Organization (NGO) Can Benefit from the Life Change Platform 
Ever since I was a little growing up in the Western Africa, I have had a special place in my heart for humanitarian organizations. My mom worked with WHO (World Health Organization) and was part of the team that drove into rural areas to meet the needs of the cut off, poor, and needy. 
I loved that my mom impacted the world around her and she unknowingly inspired me to do the same. So naturally, I started to donate to various NGO’s – one of my favorite being World Vision – and desired for others to do the same as I had developed a heart to help others. Little was I to know that years later, I would have the opportunity to be part of a mission that will aid Humanitarian organizations reach more people. 
Today, just about all humanitarian organizations put our newsletter, write blogs, and post videos of the work they do and the impact they are making on the world. This is a multi-goal idea to increase awareness, build credibility, keep people informed, and move people to donate. 
With the Life Change Platform (currently under construction), the posted content will not only help achieve the previous goals, it will help achieve one more goal: The posted newsletter, blogs, and videos can earn money for the organization. 
No, I did not misspeak and I will say it again. Content viewed on the Life Change Platform can earn funds for the posting organization. This is the beauty of the Life Change Platform.

Rohingya Refugees - The Humanitarian Crisis You May Not Have Heard About

Rohingya Refugees - The Humanitarian Crisis You May Not Have Heard About

Posted on November 06, 2017

The Rohingya are people that live mostly in the Western side of the nation of Myanmar (formerly Burma). With an estimated population of approximately 1,000,000, the Rohingya represent only 1.5% of the total population of Myanmar. While they have lived predominantly in the Rakhine region of country for centuries, they are not considered Burmese, have no citizenship status, and have no legal right to land in the country. From a strict view of the law, they are illegal squatters whose use of the land is contingent upon the grace of the Burmese govt and people.

Though the relationship between the majority Buddhist population and the minority Rohingya population has always been strenuous, historically, the tension was mostly kept in check during the period when Myanmar was under strict military rule. As the country transitioned from military rule to civilian rule, the religious tension between the two groups became pronounced, and has been worsened by nationalistic fervor and influential community leader’s instigation.
The strained relationship gave way to violence in May when the rape and death of a Buddhist woman was blamed on the Rohingya. This incident, which first gave birth to retribution from the majority population, has now spiraled into widespread violence against the Rohingya population. Since the violence is being perpetrated by both the civilian population and govt forces, many observers have called the violence against the Rohingya a form of ethnic cleansing.
The attitude of the Burmese govt can be summed up by comments made by Thein Sein, the President of Myanmar, during an address to the U.N. In this speech, he said the solution to ethnic enmity in Myanmar's western Rakhine state was to either send the Rohingya to a third country or have the UNHCR look after them.
To flee the violence, the Rohingya are pouring into neighboring Bangladesh in the tens of thousands. This year, the rate has been around 20,000 a day since August. While the Bangladeshi’s have taken in some Rohingya, there is general push back as the Rohingya are viewed as a drain on the already limited resource of the nation. In Bangladesh, the refugees are not granted citizenship. In some refugee camps, they are neither allowed to work, see a doctor, or go to school.
Life Change exists to help people such as the Rohingya! Through the Life Change Platform, you will be able to contribute to the ongoing efforts to aid the Rohingya by donating funds that you are earn as you interact on the platform to Life Change wallets or the wallets of your favorite humanitarian organization.
To find out more about how you will be able to help, please visit www.christcoins.io and read our white paper and marketing deck

Support a Child in Africa Without Spending Your Hard-Earned Money

Support a Child in Africa Without Spending Your Hard-Earned Money

Posted on October 14, 2017

On August 24, 2017, an article came out on USA Today and other news outlets that revealed that approximately 78% of full-time workers in America live paycheck to paycheck!

With such statistics, it is not far-fetched to say that most people in America do not have the disposable income to help those who are less fortunate in other countries.  But what if there was a way to help people suffering from extreme poverty (those that require aid to survive) without having to make personal resource commitments?

If it sounds too good to be true, it is not!

With Life Change Platform, you get rewarded with Christ Coin tokens anytime you spend time reading the bible, blogging, watching spiritual content, posting content etc. The tokens that you earn can then be donated to a charitable organization that have a wallet set up (kind of like a digital bank account) on the platform. The charitable organization can then exchange the digital currency for local currency in the country and help the community. 

With Life Change, you can do what you were going to do anyway and help those you had in your heart to help, without further straining your resources!

Give Life Change an Opportunity to Fast-Track Your Church Plant

Give Life Change an Opportunity to Fast-Track Your Church Plant

Posted on October 14, 2017

Planting a new church is a daunting prospect. Beginning with the call of God, to leaving a familiar church environment, to building a committed launch team, to raising the money required for a successful launch, to attracting members of the community, to maintaining financial liquidity. Starting a brand-new church can be challenging to the most faith-filled church planter.

If you have never been involved in a church plant and wonder what the primary reason many church plants fail, the answer is this: Financial insolvency. If you are involved in a church plant right now, you understand what we are talking about!

Life Change can help increase the probability that your church plant survives.

The moment you feel God’s call to plant a church, you can set up a digital account (wallet) on the Life Change Platform and start to post blogs, videos, and other content. As people watch and like your content, you get to earn Christ Coin tokens. Make Life Change, a repository for all your spiritual content for your church plant and link it to social media to earn more tokens. Moreover, you can benefit from people donating their tokens into your church plant wallet.

When the time comes, redeem these tokens for dollars or other currencies on an exchange and use them to pay staff, buy equipment, pay rent, or fund an outreach, or whatever else you need.

All you need to do is sign up, post great content, and tell everyone you know to join Life Change so they can watch and share. To find out more, visit www.lifechange.io and www.christcoins.io and read the white paper.

How Life Change Can Help You Cover the Cost of Your Church Conference

How Life Change Can Help You Cover the Cost of Your Church Conference

Posted on October 14, 2017

I recently came back from Jesus Conference 2017 in Orlando. It was a powerful conference where many lives were changed. At some point during the conference, one of the invited guests spoke about how much it takes to host such a large conference.  The financial burden can sometimes weight heavy on the hearts of the hosts. The questions are always: Will enough people show up to the conference? Will there be enough in the offering buckets to cover all expenses?

When I learned that the conference was being live streamed on God TV, I asked myself the question: What if this is being live streamed or the video simply uploaded onto the Life Change Platform? The answer was jarring!

Thousands of people watching live or watching posted video afterwards would earn the conference organization (Jesus Image for this conference) Christ Coin tokens which can then be used to cover a portion of the cost after they are redeemed for FIAT currency such as the dollar. This extra income stream may then be used to do a few things, plan another conference or reduce the financial burden on conference attendees (no need to take up offering). Moreover, this content can continue to earn tokens long after it has been posted.

The more popular Life Change becomes, the higher the value of Christ Coin tokens, and the more income can be earned. To find out more, visit www.lifechange.io and www.christcoins.io and read the white paper.

U.S Las Vegas Mass Shooting: Finding Purpose in the Pain

U.S Las Vegas Mass Shooting: Finding Purpose in the Pain

Posted on October 09, 2017

On Monday October 2nd, the country woke up to the news of a mass shooting that took place during a country music concert in Las Vegas. Like many of you, over the last few days, we have experienced a full gambit of emotions, namely confusion, sadness, anger, hopelessness, compassion, and uncertainty.

Confusion as to why anyone would want to commit such a heinous act; Sadness at the loss of lives; Anger at the prospect that in hindsight, this could have been prevented; Hopelessness because these mass shootings now seem to be a staple in our society with no current end in sight; Compassion for those directly impacted by the shooting and are experiencing a level of pain many of us will never know; And uncertainty concerning how to respond to such unbridled evil.

Unsure of what to do in our own thinking, we turned to the bible for inspiration. There, we found some scriptures that spoke to us and inspired us. We will share two of those scriptures here. We hope these scriptures encourage and inspire you.

Romans 12:21 - Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good (NKJV)

The good news that the passage reveals to us is that evil can be overcome with good! Put another way, good is more powerful than evil. Therefore, rather than allow the evil that we see and hear change us, we are to change our environment by introducing good. Each day we wake up, we can choose to be a vessel for evil or a vessel for good. We can choose to ignore the evil around us or we can choose to meet evil head on with good. The bible instructs us to overcome evil with good. We believe this means we must purposefully look for opportunities to do good in this world - whether it is smile at a co-worker, acknowledging a homeless person, feeding the poor in the community, or simply speaking an encouraging word to a stranger. You never know…what you say to that stranger may just stop them from harming themselves or change their life for the better in some way.

Where people purpose in their heart to do good, evil cannot reign; where people decide to be a light, darkness cannot stay.

Matthew 14: 21 – When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed them (NKJV)

As we read through verses on compassion, it became clear to us that ‘compassion takes action’. True compassion simply does not throw its hands up in the air, it rises and does something to influence and correct the situation it encounters. In the passage of scripture above, Jesus’ compassion led him to heal the multitude. As imitators of Christ, we too should long to be a conduit of healing in the lives of those in our sphere of influence. Practically, we must get involved in institutions, projects, goals and objectives that desire to do good in this world – supporting them with our time, resources, and energy. Our hope is that we move from being undercover believers to living a lifestyle of Christianity – walking around doing good, being others minded, and applying love in the face of fear.

Societal change begins when compassion leads to godly action. What action is God calling you to take today?

Christ Coin Launches as First Faith-Based Cryptocurrency

Christ Coin Launches as First Faith-Based Cryptocurrency

Posted on October 04, 2017

Life Change Platform Offers Investment & Income Opportunity to Consumers as well as New Revenue Streams for Churches, Non-Profits and Missions.

Baton Rouge, LA – Christ Coin has launched as the first pre-mined Christian cryptocurrency. Built by Life Change, Christ Coin has a mission to meet the spiritual and practical needs of anyone, and unite Christians together as one community for the purpose of reviving hope, repairing lives, and rebuilding dreams. Built by a team of Christian entrepreneurs, Christ Coin is groundbreaking in its ability to build a global Christian community via cryptocurrency.  

Worldwide, cryptocurrencies have hit the mainstream finding incredible success, with major retail brands having already adopted cryptocurrency for commerce, accepting “coins,’” also called “tokens,” along with cash, checks and credit cards.  Those brands include Overstock, Dish Network, Apple, Expedia, Paypal, Ebay, and NewEgg, just to name a few.

Cryptocurrencies are here to stay. Experts are weighing in:

“We have elected to put our money and faith in a mathematical framework that is free of politics and human error.” – Tyler Winklevoss, Entrepreneur in an interview with the New York Times.

“With e-currency based on cryptographic proof, without the need to trust a third party middleman, money can be secure and transactions effortless.” – Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin developer

“Just consider this: control of a currency is one of the most powerful tools a government wields; ask anybody in Ireland, Portugal, Greece, or Cyprus who lived through these countries’ recent financial crises. Bitcoin promises to take at least some of that power away from governments and hand it to people. That alone augurs significant political, cultural, and economic clashes.” – Paul Vigna, “The Age of Cryptocurrency: How Bitcoin and Digital Money Are Challenging the Global Economic Order.”

Just as PayPal changed how we pay for items and services, cryptocurrency has emerged as the next evolution in global commerce, the ongoing ways in which the world uses and earns money.  Christ Coin allows the faithful to have a way to approach finances that uniquely helps grow and support the global Christian church. Instead of dollars, consumers purchase or earn “coins,” which can be used for purchasing or exchanged just like any other currency.

Christ Coin allows churchgoers, pastors, churches, faith-based ministries and missions organizations, and more to reach a wider audience, while helping to fund Christian projects such as church plants, humanitarian efforts, VBS, and other ministries and outreaches.

Following the initial crowdfunding period, anyone can sign up on the Life Change Platform and be monetarily rewarded by interacting with the platform in various ways, including volunteering, participating in small groups, posting content and even reading the Bible.  Investment in the crowdfunding is not required.

“The overarching benefits of the Life Change Platform truly go beyond what people would typically think when talking about finance and economics,” explains Luke Forstmann, co-founder of Christ Coin. “We like to use the L.I.V.E.S. acronym:  Leave your mark on the world by supporting humanitarian efforts, Invest in a cryptocurrency, Vault your spiritual life, Earn additional income, Support the vision of your local church through tithes and offerings. Yes, Christ Coin is an investment opportunity, but it goes so much farther than personal finance. We hope it will change lives, support ministries, and inspire people to grow in their faith.”  The full L.I.V.E.S. descriptions can be found on the Christ Coins website.

As with other cryptocurrencies, Christ Coin will offer quarterly buybacks and burn of coins. This allows Christ Coin to continue to grow and increase their currency value.

Christ Coin will continue their initial coin sale and crowdfunding until December 1 at 7:00am CT.

A short video explanation of Christ Coin can be viewed here:
