The Celsius Network has become a founding member of the SDG Impact Fund within the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals initiative.

Decentralized lending and borrowing platform Celsius Network will manage the Sustainable Development Goals Impact Fund (SDG Impact Fund) within the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals initiative, according to a press release published 九月 21.

The Sustainable Development Goals is an international program focused on bringing a “better and more sustainable future for all.It addresses global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The initiative aims to achieve a series of targets by 2030.

Per the announcement, the SDG Impact Fund will be launched by financial services firm Fifth Element with the aim to raise several hundred million dollars and deploy them in both fiat and digital format using a public blockchain. The fund will purportedly be the first to accept and operate all forms of crypto and digital assets in compliance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Within the partnership with Fifth Element, Celsius Network is reportedly looking to “bring power back to the peopleby providing banking services typically reserved for top tier asset owners. Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky said thatby offering earned interest rates up to 7.1 百分比, we allow individuals to make the same passive income Wall Street has been making for years.Scott Stornetta, adviser to Celsius, commented:

“We see a great opportunity to use this technology to deliver the value collected by different U.N. organizations in a more precise and effective way to the people and organizations that need it most.

In February the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) embraced cryptocurrency by starting a charity drive for Syrian children, asking PC gamers to use their computers to mine Ethereum (eth) and donate their earnings. Later in April, UNICEF Australia also announced an initiative that allows users to give their computer’s processing power to mine cryptocurrency for charity.

On Monday, the beta period of the network will officially be over, as the protocol will become a full mainnet. Tezos introduced its beta network in June, calling the move an “inflection pointfor the project. From that point on, users could begin validating blocks or “bakingafter the first seven cycles.

In order to build a network and issue a new type of cryptocurrency, Tezos launched an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in July 2017, in which it raised around 66,000 Bitcoins (btc) 和 361,000 Ethereums (eth), worth about $232 million at that time. Tezos, however, called the fundsa non-refundable donationand not aspeculative investment,” adding that the token might not be issued at all.

Following the ICO, a dispute arose between Arthur and Kathleen Breitman, the co-founders of the project who own Tezosintellectual property rights, and Johann Gevers, who controlled the raised funds. This led to an indefinite delay of the platform launch and a series of lawsuits against the company.

Since the ICO’s completion, Tezos has also been the subject of criticism and multiple lawsuits concerning compliance with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations. The lawsuits claimed that Tezos tokens should be considered securities under U.S. law, meaning they would need to be registered with the SEC in order to be legally sold to investors.

In June, the foundation announced the implementation of Know Your Customer/Anti-Money Laundering (KYS/AML) checks for contributors, specifically for those looking to participate in ICOs. The move was met with a negative reaction from the community.

At press time, Tezos (XTZ) is trading around $1.54, up over 15 percent on the day, while its market capitalization is about $933 million.
