17 January 2018 – San Francisco, CA: They came, they blockchained for good, they helped victims of the Northern California fires and now they’ve set their sights on future growth and an expanded profile of helping good causes using crypto technology. After launching the first-ever real-time live video ICO, Duc Pham, founder of FundCru (www.fundcru.com #blockchain4good @FundCru) — having topped $4M / 3700 Ethers – will end its record setting ICO this Thursday, January 18, 2018. Token Symbol: FUND; Cryptocurrency accepted: ETH. For more information and to participate in the ICO go to https://www.fundcru.com/ico .
“So much of the press lately has been all about how to make money using crypto currency,” says Pham who engineered FundCru as a seamless user-friendly way to assist charities in raising money with a larger percentage than is typical for most e-commerce transactions. “I founded FundCru to help nonprofits and charities do good work using blockchain technology.”
The first project using FundCru’s platform to raise money was this past November’s “Chefs Giving” benefit in San Francisco: raising over $ 14,000 for relief of victims following the North Bay fires. Currently, FundCru is working with the Niguel Hills Middle School in Laguna Niguel, California to raise funds for its music education program.

Founded in 2015, FundCru is a blockchain-powered fundraising platform that funds causes through e-commerce transactions and direct donations. FundCru distinguishes itself from other fundraising platforms by supporting both cryptocurrency and fiat money on all transactions, providing fundraisers with a large percentage (typically 25%) of gross sales from eCommerce transactions, and forgoing platform fees for donations. FundCru aims to use its business model and blockchain technology to provide fundraisers with a wealth of additional revenue sources, merchants with significantly improved outreach and marketing, and supporters with more ways to help their causes and themselves.

Pham was the founder and CTO of Vormetric, which was acquired by Thales for $400 million in 2015, a leading enterprise data encryption and cybersecurity, integrating encryption, access control, audit, and host integrity protection to provide a secure computing environment for high-profile clients in the financial services, banking sectors, healthcare, and the US federal government. Pham also led and won major OEM agreements with IBM (Database Encryption Expert) and Symantec (Media Server Encryption Option). Prior to Vormetric, Pham was the founder and CEO of Linux4 Networks, a leader in SSL encryption acceleration technology, which was later acquired by Avaya.
