GoodDollar is a blockchain-powered framework to generate, finance, and distribute global basic income 🏃
GoodDollar is one of E-toro’s projects. GoodDollar provides a baseline standard of living and reduces wealth inequality by creating a universal basic income (UBI).
“The work they’ve provided at their price point had generated an enormous impact. They executed very well, so we were able to launch a significant number of new features to the site.”
G$ coins offer high liquidity as they can be easily converted to other cryptocurrencies and are available for direct buying and selling through the GoodDollar GoodReserve smart contract.
The digital asset of GoodDollar operates within the evolving ecosystem of decentralized and open finance, ensuring a decentralized and transparent financial framework.
