Hi all! I’ve socialized the following concept with a few others and curious to hear more voices, this is related to @patogit’s question about how do validators contribute to regeneration.
As validators on an ledger dedicated to ecological applications, we have a unique opportunity to inspire validators on other chains to join a common purpose of accelerating defi tools that help to support the stewards and applications of ecological, biodiversity, and climate positive outcomes, like this image,
My question to you all,
- would you be willing to automate a simple commission of block rewards into a community managed pool dedicated to ecological applications? how much would you suggest?
- would you be willing to estimate and disclose your energy footprint?
I believe if we propagate this pattern, then we’re creating a type of “regenerative finance” model at this operational layer while also helping to bring applications and use cases closer and in conversation with us. I think all of us probably know of noble use cases deserving of attention and future funding. We could start now by bringing them up to speed on what we’re building and help to close the gap between validators and application for Regen Ledger. Like this image,
Thank you for all who took the time to read and respond!
