The non-profit organization – American Cancer Society – plans to hire a product supervisor to oversee its potential cryptocurrency and NFT roadmap. The best candidate needs to have experience in fintech, knowledge of payments processing, and a passion for digital assets.
The ACS Wants to Be The Leading Digital NPO
The health organization dedicated to fighting cancer seems highly interested in getting involved with cryptocurrencies. According to a job posting, the American Cancer Society wants to add to its team a product manager who will develop and define a roadmap dedicated to virtual assets and non-fungible tokens.
Apart from that, the new executive would have to establish relationships with external software or service partners. The future manager would also work side-by-side with the Digital Marketing team, Operations, and Field Staff.
The health organization requires the candidates to have a high level of education, a good understanding of business and computer science, and over three years of experience in product management and fintech. “Knowledge and passion” for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology would also pull the applicants closer to the position.
The American Cancer Society is one of the largest health foundations. Established in 1913, it has over 1.5 million volunteers operating in more than 250 regional offices throughout the United States.
It is worth noting that the welfare organization UNICEF has already dipped its toes in the virtual asset space and launched its CryptoFund in 2019. The initiative enabled people to send donations in the form of cryptocurrencies.
BTC and ETH as Payment for Addiction Treatment
Legacy Healing Center became the latest company to accept cryptocurrencies as a payment method for its healthcare services. According to a recent statement, the patients of the clinique would now be able to pay for their treatments in bitcoin (BTC) and ether (ETH):
“Accepting Bitcoin and Ethereum as payment for addiction treatment helps people seeking the best possible addiction care be able to choose how they want to pay for services. Payment can be completed instantly once the personalized treatment plan has been established and the details agreed upon by the client and clinical team.”
LHC is based in Florida and offers a high level of clinical care for drug and alcohol treatment. The organization acknowledged that the new payment method in cryptocurrencies would help more people to get professional assistance.
