Litecoin users create 100 jobs in Madagascar

“Online donors have raised more than $10,000 in Litecoin to employ Madagascan villagers to plant trees. The move will create more than 100 new jobs in the impoverished country, as well as reforesting the area with more than 100,000 new trees. The Madagascan mangrove forests are a vital part of the local eco-system, providing support for the local habitat as well as protecting the ground from washing away with the changing tides. Fundraisers from the Litecoin community, the leading alternative crypto-currency to Bitcoin, came together to support the Eden Projects, a reforestation charity based in Glendora, California.”
