Let’s get to Mars already!
100% of your cryptocurrency donations will go to the Mars Prize Fund: The Mars Prize Fund will be awarded to the first Team to send a human to the surface of Mars. The Mars Prize Fund is crowdfunded and designed to accelerate the first mission by offsetting some of the cost. The Mars Initiative is committed to a “HODL” principle with cryptocurrency donations. This means The Mars Initiative will honor all donor intentions until the reward winner is determined and the funds are approved to be disbursed. At this point the recipient may choose how it wishes to dispense with the reward. All cryptocurrency assets are held in secure wallets using industry best practices for key management and security.
The Mars Initiative is also committed to supporting the latest developments in the cryptocurrency and Fintech space to support our mission. Please contact us if you wish to donate using a different cryptocurrency. Donors may also use the following addresses with supporting wallets:
- ENS: marsinitiative.eth
- FIO: [email protected]
- Unstoppable Domains: marsinitiative.crypto
Fiat currency donors also have the opportunity to donate to two other programs. At the moment these programs are not eligible to cryptocurrency donors. Micro Grant Program: Provides small grants of about $200 to K-12 educators around the world. Teachers can buy supplies to help teach anything related to outer space. Operations Fund: We are 100% run by volunteer power but we do have some small expenses that need to be covered. This pays for those expenses so we don’t have to dip into the prize fund for that. Note: Donations of $100 or more to the Mars Prize fund will pay for an entire mile of the first crewed trip to Mars!
Mars Initiative is a non-profit organization, 501(c)3. We are comprised entirely of volunteers from around the world who donate their time and expertise. 100% of the Mars Prize Fund Balance will be awarded to the first entity that safely lands humans on Mars.
