Saying goodbye to our departed loved ones, is one of the most difficult things in life. The most common way to say goodbye is through a funeral service or memorial service. A funeral service usually takes place with the body of the departed loved one present. A memorial service takes place without the body present (US Funerals Online, n.d.). The Global Funeral Care Foundation understands that everybody wants to honor the live and memories in a way the departed loved one truly deserves, and fully supports the funeral industry from a neutral perspective. The foundation conducted research on the funeral industry and found issues that have not been solved for decades. Such as the rising costs of funeral services, (U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics [BLS], 2017). Many people cannot afford their own funeral service. Therefore, many institutions offer options for pre-planning funeral expenses (Legacy Staff, 2018). However, many people often pay more than the funeral service would costs without taking the service. Institutions often overcharge consumers. According to regulators, funeral homes are violating the law by not disclosing prices (Benincasa, 2017). An Executive Director of the Funeral Consumer Alliance explains that the technological and transparency level is from the pre-digital days (Benincasa, 2017). It is likely that the funeral industry in the United States will grow within the next years (Copeland, 2015). A tremendous increase of elderly will cause a shortage of cemetery space within a few decades. The Global Funeral Care Foundation wants to solve all current issues and prevent new issues that negatively affect the funeral industry. The foundation wants to achieve worldwide success by disrupting the global funeral industry. The foundation offers a complete infrastructure that brings organizations that operate in the funeral industry and its consumers together on a globally sourced decentralized support platform without entry barriers, in combination with GFC, which is a proof of stake cryptocurrency joined by Masternodes that is specifically designed for the global funeral industry.
