Indonesia Center’s Profile


Indonesia is an archipelagic country, lying between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. Strategically located along major sea lanes connecting East Asia, South Asia, and Oceania. Topographically, it is surrounded by sea and mountains, as well as a large continental shelf (Sunda and Sahul shelf). This country also has the highest fold mountain in a tropical area. Indonesia also has a very deep (5,000+ meters) oceanic trench, named Banda trench.

The geography has helped Indonesia to become a prosperous country with rich natural resources such as soil fertility for the agricultural sector, fish, minerals, crude oils, and others. But, on the other hand, it also puts Indonesia in a dangerous position as well. The existence of tectonic faults, and volcanic activities under the sea trigger earthquakes and cause tsunamis to strike the country without warning.

Geographically, as it sits on the ring of fire, Indonesia has become a country where severe earthquakes have occurred, killing hundreds of thousands of people (Aceh tsunami in 2004, Lombok, Sulawesi, and the most recent one in Selat Sunda – 2018), damaging and destroying houses, public facilities, and infrastructure. These tragedies have caused heavy casualties as well as material losses that can affect the socio-economic community. Development planning has been hampered.

Recently, on 22nd December 2018, the eruption activities of Anak Krakatau Mountain have caused a landslide in the sea which triggered the tsunami that struck Banten and Lampung province.

Based on the infographic data source, released by Antara News, 25 Dec 2018, at 1.00 pm Indonesian time, there were about 429 deaths, 154 people missing, 16,082 people who became homeless refugees, 882 houses and 60 stores destroyed or heavily damaged. There may even be more victims who have not yet been found and recorded, so the toll may be even higher.

Considering the situation above, Indonesia Center has been established with the aim of providing contributions to the survivors of the disasters as well as the people affected by the disasters. The contributions provided in the form of funding will be delivered to the target beneficiaries through the selected accountable Person in Charge (PIC) to ensure that the contributions get to the rightful beneficiaries.

The crowdfunding will be managed transparently using one of the applications in the Steem blockchain.

About Indonesia Center

Indonesia Center is a crowdfunding center for disaster victims based on the Steem Blockchain, and for the Independent Researcher bases, created on 27th December 2018, several days after the tsunami struck Banten and Lampung regions, Indonesia. It as established to support the victims/survivors of the disasters in Indonesia. By using the blockchain technology, Indonesia Center hopes that the transparency of funding management and delivery will be able to be monitored by everyone since the blockchain is a data storage which is accessible to everyone in the network, transparent, distributed and permanent, so that will not be able to be manipulated.

In the future, Indonesia Center will develop the researcher team for disaster mitigation, to explore the possibility of informing people regarding the disasters and provide any alternative (if possible) related to disaster risk reduction, so that we will be able to minimize the victims of disasters.

Indonesia Center is crowdfunding that is independent and neutral and is not used for the benefit of any party. Nonetheless, it will not limit the Indonesian Center from partnering with government agencies in the contribution of the valid data generated from research.
