Hello to everyone
As many of you know, xDai prides itself with its eco-friendly blockchain. PoW is considered old tech today, there’s also political issues associated with it, it requires a lot of resources and harms the environment. More security & decentralization can be achieved with a superior consensus mechanisms, like PoS - for example.
With that being said, I’ve been thinking about how xDai as a community can help the environment a bit more. This post is for discussion purposes only. I’d like to see what the community thinks about my potential proposal.
#TeamTrees was a big fuzz around the internet back in 2020 and I’m sure the xDai community is aware of it. #TeamSeas is the next campaign to which many influencers, individuals etc. contribute, the goal is to get rid of 30 million pounds of trash out of the ocean.
A lot of crypto-users are paying hundreds of dollars in Tx fees daily on Mainnet, whilst we enjoy near-zero Tx costs. So the idea goes something like this:
Users on xDai chain pay extra X amount of xDai when sending a Tx, which then goes into a fund dedicated to #TeamSeas.
Let’s say each user pays extra $0,10 (cents) per Tx. Also, let’s say daily Tx volume on xDai is 200,000.
That means xDai community will be donating $20,000 to #TeamSeas daily! That’s 20,000 pounds worth of trash removed from the ocean! Every individual will pay couple of dozens cents, but with the power of community, those few dozen cents equates to 20 thousand pounds of trash removed from the ocean! daily!
Same proposal can be expanded to #TeamTrees. With #TeamTrees, that means 20 thousand trees planted a day.
If someone’s thinking “What’s in it for xDai?”, well, in most basic form - marketing. But I’m proposing this more for what #TeamSeas’ mission is, rather than a way to pump up the price of STAKE.
Eager to know what you guys think. It’d be awesome if we can make this happen!
