Ever wondered that idling away time browsing the internet could make a difference in improving the lives of deprived children? Yes, that’s possible with The HopePage, a web page launched by UNICEF, which borrows your computer’s processing power to mine cryptocurrency and automatically donates the riches to the charity organization.

This is the second time UNICEF has turned to cryptocurrency to bankroll its humanitarian projects, after targeting computer gamers for fundraising in February, notes Futurism.

Over 2,600 people have already donated to UNICEF Australia through this creative way, which requires one to only open the site in the browser and give required permissions, writes The Verge.
