A former pastor-turned-entrepreneur is poised to make a positive impact on the world by using the power of cryptocurrency to empower people through their churches.
Jon Blaylock, who is now the CEO of 3lock, rolled out Ophir, a digital currency that is making history as the first charity smart contract on the blockchain.
Ophir is a land known for its opulence, as cited in the Bible.
Dubbed “Project Ophir Crypto,” the donation effort is a cryptocurrency-based fundraising campaign aimed at funneling donations to the Cavite-based, non-profit organization, General Mariano Alvarez Fellowship of Christian Churches (GMAFEC).
Any accumulated funds will be used to finance the activities of GMAFEC, which includes educating other churches.

The donation drive accepts endowments in the form of ETH, USDT, USDC, HEX, SLP, or TXN, and promises to reciprocate the charity with $OPHIR as a free gift. Although without yet a monetary value, it is anticipated that Ophir will eventually gain worth as it becomes usable in trading.
Believing in the optimism that blockchain technology presents, the 3lock CEO is encouraging the adoption of the innovation, claiming that its “opportunities for positive transformation are limitless.”
More specifically, he advocates the creation of a user-friendly and accessible platform that empowers people by giving them autonomy with their finances and realizes their genuine potential.
Through acceptance of a wide variety of cryptocurrencies—ETH, USDT, USDC, HEX, SLP, or TXN—Blaylock hopes to reach a broader audience and make the charity effort an easier feat for supporters.
