Cryptocurrency for charity

There are many cryptocurrencies in the world. What about such cryptocurrency that gives some percentage of its amount to charity? This charity money can go to charity organizations that help people who are in real danger of dying because of hunger and sickness (Unicef, Doctors Without Borders, Save the Children etc.). What is the percentage that this cryptocurrency donates to charity? There are so called green search engines that give some of their profit to charity, like Ecosia. Actually even Google could become “green search engine” if it gives small amount of its multi-billion profits to charity, not for ecology to plant forests but to save lives of people, giving money to charity organizations that help people who have hunger or sickness. If this green search engine principle can be in some cryptocurrency, so it then gives some amount of money to charity organizations like Doctors Without borders or Unicef.
There already are some cryptocurrencies that have something to do with development projects, like Stellar Foundation of Lumen cryptocurrency, or EOS IO. Stellar Foundation works in development countries so that it can “empower people”. There is also cryptocurrency Moeda that is specially designed to work in development countries.
But cryptocurrency that is like normal cryptocurrency, it differs from them only because it gives some amount of money to charity like Ecosia or other similar projects, can be made. The Tobin tax, or Tobin-Spahn tax, or Spahn tax (that is the name of Tobin tax today) or transaction tax has been proposed but not used. If there would be cryptocurrency that uses Tobin/Spahn tax principle, but instead of giving that tax money to state (because state does not use Tobin/Spahn tax) this money goes to charity organization like Doctors Without Borders, Unicef etc. This is one way how cryptocurrency can collect money for charity. This cryptocurrency can also be used in development countries. Or is some special cryptocurrency like Moeda that is tailored to development countries needs better? Of course Moeda or similar cryptocurrency can be used in industrial countries too, not only in Africa etc.
There are also cryptocurrencies that are non-blockchain based, like IOTA/Tangle, Holochain, “Hashgraph”, and “Nano”. Perhaps non-blockchain is better than blockchain (that is often gigabytes large) in development countries cryptocurrency? If non-blockchain makes “distributed ledger” simpler.
There is also distributed peer to peer microloan systems, Mifos X, and Webinos project. Mifos X can perhaps benefit from distributed ledger- based cryptocurrency system, because now Mifos X is quite big software program that needs gigabytes of memory space, so this Mifos X program needs much memory if it is in someone s telephone etc. in development countries.

There are cryptocoins for charity like Donationcoin, Giftcoin, Charity Compassion Coin.

But instead of special cryptocurrency there can be such currency that has sort of not so visible charity function. For example cryptocurrency that uses Tobin - Spehn tax and donates that money to charity, that is small percentage (fraction of percentage?) of money transactions with this cryptocurrency. Not even name of this cryptocurrency is need to be like “Donationcoin” or such, it can be otherwise normal cryptocurrency but its users pay small amount of Spehn tax to charity, for example, or other small amount of donation is included when using this cryptocoin.
There is message chain “Global 12 hour working day rule - why not?” in Robin Hood Coop Discourse forums, where in last three posts of that message chain is “green production tax”, “fair income tax” CTT (commodities transaction tax calculations) and other such things. Those kind of taxation systems can be used also in cryptocurrency, to donate some amounts of money to charity.
