    UNicoins features

    Collaboration marketplace

    A cross-UN collaboration platform where UN personnel can advertize collaboration opportunities and find collaborators. We envisage a future where integration with other UN collaboration platforms such as conecta can make this process seamless for UN personnel.

    Tokens and Badges

    UN personnel-specific emblems that recognize contributions of time to cross-UN projects. In contrast to UNicoins tokens, which constitute the system’s tradable assets, badges are indicative of a personnel’s accumulated collaboration efforts, measured in time spent.

    Internal reward system

    Individuals with a high level of commitment receive rewards as a consequence of their collaboration efforts.

    Minimal viable bureaucracy

    UNicoins is a lightweight tool that does not get in the way of your productivity. No administrative overhead or technical expertise required.
