The EG Association is a non-profit organization that serves to bring and influence social impact activities to all regions of the world. The establishment of the organization was a response to the need for the cryptocurrency ELONGATE to effectively deploy its social impact initiatives on the ground. With a mutual working structure, Elongate shall provide the technological solutions for the EG Association’s global initiatives. The association’s mission is to leverage community action and blockchain technologies to grow a global movement that defies the status quo and makes profitability intrinsically linked to positive social impact. This means that the EG Association acts as the real-world gateway – governing social impact activities on the ground such as donations, sponsorships, social entrepreneurship, and community action – effectively empowering the blockchain-based efforts of Elongate and its crypto community.
