Let's build a database of great projects with solid fundamentals that are outside of the Top 100. That way we can help people be EARLY to objectively DYOR into projects which may not have much hype behind them and who show great investment potential (I'll start it off & please add yours as well)
Europe's largest Bitcoin ETP is going carbon neutral due to investor demands for ESG. We explain what ESG is and discusses the nature-based, carbon sequestration, and renewable energy projects that ETC Group is funding in order to offset Bitcoin-related Scope 3 emissions.
Public sentiment via misinformation campaigns. That's why it's so important that people learn about Bitcoin instead of being told what to think about Bitcoin. I can't believe the ESG and slow-transaction narratives are actually still alive. People really don't get this thing, and that is really the only threat I see to Bitcoin.
He has 20% in the crypto "space." A portfolio manager will never put more than 5% of that 20% allocated into one part of a sector. So in this case, if his fund is $400M, he has $80M allocated to crypto. That would mean no more than $4M in any item. He probably has $4M in BTC, then the rest is scattered across alt coins, publicly traded miners (Riot, Marathon) all with an ESG bend as people like this have to broadcast their ESG compliance.
true, sorry, was over generalizing But personally I do think it mostly starts with too much money printing in the US/EU, decreasing middle and low class jobs by outsourcing and ESG restrictions Everything else, fuel, food prices etc comes after that
Fuel prices are due to inflation, war in 1 country is only an excuse. It already went bad way before. Money printing to pay for Alice in Wonderland politics, unrealistic ESG, limitless immigration, exaggerated lockdowns and outsourcing middle class jobs is what creates inflation and your high fuel prices. Basically just left politics at work. Inflation and left wing is more or less synonymous. Can't have a fantasy world without inflation. Only the sun rises for free, the rest costs money. Other reasons for the current situation are just denying or conflating the truth
tldr; Environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) investments attracted $70 billion in 2021, a 35% increase over the previous 2020 high, according to Morningstar. However, despite record growth, ESG funds have not yet reached mass adoption, a survey by Betterment found. More than a quarter of respondents said they currently own some kind of ESG-themed investment. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

I read a conspiracy theory that I liked the other day - what we're witnessing is The Fed vs The WEF. The Fed is deliberately choking the global economy to stop The WEF crowd from taking over with their ESG driven version of the one world government. The Fed isn't necessarily the good guy in this scenario, more that we're all just innocent civilians scrambling for cover as the Kaiju trample and destroy the city while battling each other with no regards to what happens to us. Anyway, it's a fun thought. I love me some good conspiracy theories.
Most transactions cost more the more people or trust is involved. It's the difference between mail and email and radio. An example of saving $100 using tech might be in a garage sale. I spend $100 on tables and ads and other costs for my sale but a website is able to do theirs better using $10. And now we're at the point where algorithms create their own sales using $0, which I can't compete with at my costs. We have companies charge people like me $10 for limited access to their algorithm just so I can continue with my sales, and I can't compete otherwise. Then they charge me $14 and $23 now $35 and I have no choice if I want to continue my business. The developer was paid hourly and laid off as soon as this thing shipped so all the money flows straight up. The Rube Goldberg machine Zuck sits on top of would run fine without him.. it's almost as if the money that gets spent in the site could be used in better ways. Imagine a Facebook that you owned your own data and every $1 an advertiser paid him to learn something about *you* went through (and to) you first, that's the dream anyway, or else the advertiser might have to spend $1 on a world hunger fund for that access if that's what everyone agreed to prior, choices choices. (The ideal) Crypto is different from centralized ledger systems because people all agree on one set of rules that can't be changed arbitrarily and no one except you is able to make transactions on your behalf. Both of those things are extremely important for a thing to be fair and each missing in the web2.0 world. YouTube basically raises our youth now, who decides what they show them when we aren't looking? How can you verify any suspicions? Imagine if you could see an overview of what 'groups' your person is in and could opt in or out of them as if you were in control. How do you know they don't change it back when you aren't looking? These are difficult challenges with centralization without simply using more centralization as oversight (turtles all the way *up?*) - but what better thing to oversee corruption than 'everyone' watching in a public squire for their own selfish incentives. Blockchain could therefore be a good use for YouTube to be more transparent since they could *prove* (to you or your parents) what they showed you was based on a specific thing you agreed on and nothing extra, which provides some intrinsic value to YouTube if that improves their company value proposition (likely with ESG). It was an arbitrary decision to keep money offline originally. The internet was created as a government tool for research, they didn't want people to add banking information to it because it wasn't particularly secure. That hasn't changed in law but the US did allow 3rd party *nonbanks* to facilitate funds instead. These nonbanks are entirely automated and act as a security layer between us and the internet. These nonbanks take an excessive cut especially in things like remittance (5% is average) which is unethical no matter how you look at it, their costs are likely $0.000X per tx and the only successful thing they accomplished (other than buying existing code rights) is to be in a privileged position at a time that tool wasn't easily accessible, like a *real life stock broker* in the 2000s before Robinhood existed. Anyways now there is a secure way to put money online using crypto. The digital yuan(won? Wen??) is integrated with their web browsers the same way MetaMask integrates with Web3. China uses it to tip on social media then order food and earn in the markets without involving 16 different 3rd parties like the US does, which is so much more efficient/cheap. The pure capatalist approach is nice for gdp growth but not necessarily for *my* value, which I do expect if I'm using any digitally automated thing. >Doesn’t buying coins and converting fiat currency and then getting fees and taxes attached to it make using these systems more expensive and less efficient? It depends on how you spend it. I auto-buy my crypto each pay so it's not a burden for me to acquire. I then withdraw to an L2 if I'm going to use it (not much lately) and pay around $2-5 in fees for 50 transactions which I try to make count ($2.25 per click at my broker) And I only pay taxes on profit which is fair with me, if I stay flat I don't owe. Strike manages their payments by buying BTC on spot, transferring it through an open LN channel, then selling BTC the quarter second later, transferring money to the merchant. So you give them $100 and they give the merchant $100 and you don't owe any additional taxes. Strike is using BTC instead of VISA because it costs them ~0.04 *cents* instead of 3%, and by selling so quickly they owe taxes on a cents at most at a time. (And VISA is using Ethereum because it's cheaper than VISA.) This isn't 100% decentralized but it uses the trust assumptions inside the tech to automate away the biggest costs. You can use your crypto as collateral for a tax-free cash loan - pay the loan off as if you were to DCA back into your position and avoid all taxes because you never sold. To divert all capital gains taxes indefinitely (as long as you never sell) like the 1% get away with. I do this whenever I need cash because I don't want to pay taxes 16 times while I use this as an active account. You can use crypto by posting collateral in a protocol, and be issued a debit card. Lots of people use stablecoins this way so they don't have to stress about capital gains, then they get to collect the 3% would-be VISA fee for themselves. Banks are going to be able to issue their own stablecoins next year! Odd! I guess most payment coins won't make sense unless you *really* value decentralization for your task, which isn't *every task in the whole web* like crypto is sometimes tries to be. Instead of mail, email, and radio, we'll have CBDCs, bank backed stablecoins, Venmo/cashapp, and crypto, all at different costs and all for different use cases. I wouldn't trust the central bank to look after my YouTube algorithm, and I can't see Robinhood/Cashapp/banks let me use all their algos permissionlessly or cheap. Where ever decentralization does make sense (any form of trustless communication, like proper execution of automation which *is* a privileged position to be in) it will bring value.
He’s not wrong - look at the games industry. Woke activist’s are responsible for destroying many game studios for the sake of ESG funding. Ubisoft is a laughingstock and EA murdered the Battlefield franchise for “diversity”. How did they do that you ask? The single most important movement mechanism is locked behind a token and they have not only refused to listen to customer feedback they labeled the bf242 sub as a toxic cesspit and block users who participate there from contacting them via other means. Then there was G4 TV that went on a man hating gamer-gate rant and blew up a $900M investment from Comcast. I’ve been burned too many times. Any company that prioritizes ESG BS over a quality product will not be getting a dime from me.
I can see that he is. I don’t know much about him. But I guess the social justice, stakeholder capitalism crew is doing the same thing he is. The difference is that it is a 10,000/1 ratio. In my industry it is ESG, DEI etc 100% of the time. And god (or unknowable greater force) forbid if you give even a hint of something less than full allegiance.
I like the expression used by the author: "The power of blockchain". For mass adoption you need people to wake up, start seeing cryptocurrencies for what it is, money, crypto are money, which can be exchanged for local currency, although the best is that we can use directly, paying for goods and services with our favorite crypto currency. I like Telos because it is a fast blockchain in native in TelosEVM, it is totally green, this is an important aspect, it complies with the ESG protocol established by the United Nations, because we need to protect the environment its features offers the best benefits for adoption.
tldr; Blockchain is based in open-source transparency and comes with a critical level of trust baked in. The ability to connect multiple blockchains together is critical for use cases like supply chain, procurement, ESG, global business services, and customer engagement work flows beyond the boundaries of individual businesses. To achieve universal use cases, the "internet of blockchains" will require a considerable standardization effort. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

Hi there. Allow me to share to you this underrated gem which I discovered. Telos $TLOS is a community-driven network that powers the fastest EVM in the world. The Telos EVM blockchain offers: \- 0.5 second block times \- Highly scalable infrastructure \- 10,000 transactions per second \- Low fixed cost transactions \- No front-running. \- ESG Compliant and more To learn more about Telos, you can check them here: www.telos.net Always do your own research.
This is like the phase that Telos network is taking steps to. They are more into development of apps and partnerships. Telos is the world's most robust and decentralized ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) compliant Layer 1 platform, and home to the world's fastest, highest capacity EVM (tEVM), derives credible neutrality and decentralization from at least 42 equally distinct validating nodes. Furthermore, no ungoverned wallet is known to hold more than 2% of the chain. Decentralization and neutrality are the chain's top priorities, from chain design to finances. Telos has evolved over the previous 4 years into a really utopian blockchain choice for both private and public infrastructure. It is ridiculously fast, very cheap, incredibly energy efficient, credibly neutral, non-congested, super easy to deploy on, and the only chain that entirely insulates the public from Ethereum's front running / MEV problem. As of now, I guess there are already almost 200 dapps/partnerships on Telos. Still undervalued at the moment, and so I believe it is the best time to hop into. Check it out at telos.net. At the moment, the Team attends the 2022 Consesus at Austin Texas to bring this web3 on the stage and be know in the whole world. Don't miss this amazing project.
I hate it too, but let's be honest do you really need to use TW of power just to transfer my fucking Angelblock token from a wallet to another, it doesn't even hold the pic, it's just the gateway into opensea to see it For that amount of power you should be able to send whole pictures not just a token like that And I agree, a lot of hypocrites, same for the banking system which will still exist no matter what, same for all of the databases BUT they are n'th times more efficient so let not be hypocrites ourselves Atleast newer chains are efficient, while I do not like PoS that much, it does better in this aspect, ESG matters no matter what monkey brains think
its not regulated at all and these companies have compliance departments and ESG mandates etc. Theyre all literally waiting for solid regulation to get the "ok" so that they are protected from all kinds of lawsuits and issue that could arise. They are going to buy it up like mad because once regulated a lot of investors are forced to allocate to it due to fiduciary requirements
I am environmentalist and also crypto curious, I am particularly focused on projects that comply with ESG because they also give me security and confidence to invest, thanks for the information shared about telos I’ll research.
Creating a savings and investment vehicle that keeps money from flowing into the stock market is probably the most ESG thing you can do. Stop subsidizing companies that are simultaneously destroying the environment, pushing harmful legislation that protects their monopoly, and making themselves the only escape from fiat currency debasement. Buy Bitcoin instead.
It has ruined a lot of projects out there. Just look who took over at the Mozilla foundation. Go through the board one by one and you will understand the anti-btc stand of them. Mozilla itself and the board members parrot basically the whole WEF, ESG and globalist talking points. On the other hand thanks to the cancel culture in the Mozilla foundation and the removing of Brendan Eich and the start of his new project we were gifted with Brave.
Yes and the tech companies are some of the breeding ground of all this ESG corporate bullshit. Working there will necessarily impact your mind even if you do not believe in the ESG bullshit. Even the company were I work now we started to worry about our electricity consumption instead of making sure we create the best product ever.
Ethereum is definitely not the “largest and most secure” my man. Bitcoin is. Your assumption that less energy usage is fundamentally good is also untrue imo. The ESG overlords approve, but those who would revolutionize energy networks see another way.
I would like to point out that Musk owns more Bitcoin personally than you or I will ever own. Tesla is holding over a billion dollars worth. If Hyperbitcoinization hits, he will not be "history" and in fact will be very well off in the new paradigm. Traditional banks, hedge funds, oil companies, and corporate media have been trying to destroy Elon Musk for years. I wouldn't group him in with that crowd. Tesla recently received an ESG rating worse than Exxon fucking Mobile after Musk announced his plan to open source Twitter and restore free speech.
HIVE Blockchain has profit margins of ~85%, and are profitable down to a $6K/BTC. They also use 100% green energy, and produce between 400-500BTC worth of digital assets a month. They are my go to bear market miner, due to future ESG concerns and profitability/efficiency.
Easier to purchase tokens, especially when you're an insider or are able to get into a pre-launch sale. Anyone with the right connections or amount of money can take controlling stake of a network. It's much more difficult to source hashrate, especially given today's competitive industry. You need to acquire both mining chips, which have been facing backlogs for months, energy infrastructure to house those miners (even some of the biggest current public miners have rigs but no power sitting idle), You need to be able to withstand at least 1y+ ROI on your rigs, so access to additional free capital will be necessary, you also need to pass regulatory standards regarding ESG in your location or the future coming regulation. The logistics to building a profitable scaleable mining operation is much more complex than simply buying X amount of tokens at the click of a button.
Algorand is also partnered with ISDA, which regulates the derivatives markets. The derivatives market is worth trillions and trillions and guess what they care about ESG ratings and green technology. My guess is the derivatives markets will be running on Algorand once regulation comes down the pipeline.
I see what you are saying. However, it seems that we want to have different rules for Bitcoin mining than we would for other tech companies. The S&P ESG Index currently has companies like, Astrazeneca, Google, Microsoft, VW, Amazon and even oil and gas companies like Exxon Mobil (we can imagine the amount of energy and waste that goes into finding oil, not to mention oil spills). *I don't want to build a straw man* **but** I would ask, what is the difference between a server farms and data centers that Google and Amazon have? They produce e waste and heat similar to Bitcoin. But we don't bat an eye, as we type on Reddit or tweeting, technically wasting energy on something frivolous. Yet, we want Bitcoin to be held to a higher standard. However, I agree in this aspect, set the standards for all to follow and reduce or eliminate greenwashing.
i really thought the ESG fud would get more speculators and I could finally sell my Nano last year. Guess I'll just ride it to nothing. maybe i should swap for Banano lol at least banano is just for LOLs and feeless tipping. I sort of feel Nano lost its use case over the past year.
Nah man I just don't live on Reddit. u/supersb360 covered it well enough in the comment above. It is clear that the current administration wants to destroy fossil fuel related industries, regardless of effect it might have on the economy, or frankly the environment (have you seen what a lithium mine looks like?). We went from energy independence to going around to dictators with hat in hand begging for oil in less than 2 years. The entire west is committing suicide over these supposedly green initiatives, but they don't actually work. Bitcoiners should be especially wary of environmentalists and ESG types, who are simply using emotional appeals to gain more power. They are happy gas prices are approaching $10 a gallon. That's tantamount to another lockdown. Keep the peasants off the road. They will try to use the same angle to capture/destroy Bitcoin.
It's not really centralized or even a profitable entity, it's simply a coordination of public miners (anyone can join), to share and pursue a more environmentally friendly future for bitcoin mining. There was previously no system in place to measure sustainability so these companies got together to establish one and combat the endless ESG FUD bitcoin endures.
Ethereum is taking steps to improve energy consumption, but it still has a long way to go to be a chain that complies with the ESG protocols, established by the United Nations. Telos has achieved, together with Plannet Zero, to eliminate carbon emissions, its smart contracts run by default, avoiding contamination of the environment. The dApps on board Telos, such as SEEDS, Kanda Weather Balls, among others, work for the benefit of the environment. Telos' commitment to compliance with the ESG protocol for the benefit of the environment is serious, it also pays special attention to the social aspect with dApps that are doing a job of empowering users such as Appics, New Life, Lips, Unbiased, Heartchurch , Discussions among others. And finally, the voting system through Decide Voter, the Telos community has the power to elect their rulers and make important decisions in everything related to the network. Telos provides, speed, transparency, security, performance, economy. No ICO, no front running Active 24/7 without interruption telos .net **DYOR**
This is indeed a triggering topic to discuss right now. I have really started pondering about what Bitcoin and Ethereum is currently being the top of all crypto that consumes tons of energy to mine their cryptocurrencies, what if all of our resources have already ram out because this kind of technology is the one digging our graves? If you love Mother Earth or if you are an Environmentalist then you should know this superb technology which has a heart for Energy Conservation. In short, if you are an Earth-Saver, then you should be in Telos Network. Let’s try to compare Telos’ Energy Consumption to the top 2 Blockchains in the world: Bitcoin and Ethereum **Bitcoin** consumes 126 TWH of energy per year **Etheruem**: 49 TWH **Telos Network**: 0.0004 TWH **Constant use of energy** has led to an increase in the production of greenhouse gases. Humans produce greenhouse gases faster than they can be taken up by carbon users, such as plants. This increase in **greenhouse gases** has led to a continued, irreversible rise in planetary temperature. Thus, it is one of the major cause of **Global Warming**. Burning fossil fuels to produce electricity or heat is responsible for roughly half of global warming pollution. Let us always keep that in mind. **Profitability** should also match **Natural Resources sustainability**. It should be in our hearts to support projects not only because they are trending but consider their aims to take care of the planet. So much for me watching post-apocalyptic movies these past few days but I don’t wanna live in that kind of environment that is being portrayed in the future if we don’t act NOW to protect Earth! Telos Foundation shared about meeting the ESG standards. Let’s take a glimpse what this is. This compliance is set by the United Nations for businesses all around the globe. E - Environment S - Social G - Governance Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) investments & business practices are the important criteria when weighing the potential risks of an initiative. Many institutions have been calling for ESG solutions in the blockchain sector but no network has delivered until Telos did. But let’s focus on the Environmental criterion since the goal is to let everyone know that we do have the Greenest Blockchain. **What is Environmental Economics?** Environmental economics is an area of economics that studies the financial impact of environmental policies. Environmental economists perform studies to determine the theoretical or empirical effects of environmental policies on the economy. This field of economics helps users design appropriate environmental policies and analyze the effects and merits of existing or proposed policies. **Understanding Environmental Economics** The basic argument underpinning environmental economics is that environmental amenities (or environmental goods) have economic value and there are environmental costs of economic growth that go unaccounted in the current market model. Environmental goods include things like access to clean water, clean air, the survival of wildlife, and the general climate. Environmental goods are usually difficult fully privatize and subject to the problem known as the tragedy of the commons. Destruction or overuse of environmental goods, like pollution and other kinds of environmental degradation, can represent a form of market failure because it imposes negative externalities. Environmental economists thus analyze the costs and benefits of specific economic policies that seek to correct such problems, which also involves running theoretical tests or studies on possible economic consequences of environmental degradation The Advantage of Telos Blockchain A recent analysis found that Telos’ energy consumption estimates are lower than any major competitor, even Visa! Beyond estimates, the community is currently auditing their energy consumption and CO2 generation based on detailed reports from all network validators. This will allow users to accurately predict their energy usage and mitigate it through community approved carbon credit purchases and Telos-based initiatives such as SEEDS, LocalScale, and Corcocoin projects. All these efforts ensure Telos provides the gold standard of environmental transparency in the blockchain industry. Even with these incredibly low energy statistics, the network is doing more. **Members of the community and the Telos Foundation have celebrated during the recent Earth Day when the whole ecosystem is already fully carbon-neutral**. Tis is actually an EXTREME CHALLENGE TO ANY blockchain that can barely accomplish. Consuming less energy or even going carbon neutral isn’t enough when it comes to having a positive environmental impact. Projects must actively find ways to foster environmental regeneration. With all the ESG tools available to developers, Telos has attracted many projects whose sole mission is improving and maintaining our natural resources. This has pushed Telos far ahead of competitors when it comes to environmental impact. SEEDS, one of Telos Network's dapp is an innovative economic system and cryptocurrency that is championing these issues by using the Telos. Aren’t you convinced that if you chose Telos as your blockchain, you are doing a big favor to the Planet Earth? If you are ready to join the Telos Ecosystem just like these amazing dApps we have here, then you are welcome! Check r/TELOS for more info. **Final thoughts:** I was brought up by a family that loves agriculture and nature. I use to plant trees in side-streets, I used to preserve old trees by creating signages to don’t cut, I used to segregate waste products to Bio-degradable and Non-Biodegradable. I care for our planet in my own little way which is actually a great part that I soon realized up to this day. I am seeking for your support to do the same with this simple choice you are about to do as a developer and as a crypto-trader. It is not too late for us to choose wisely!
tldr; An ESG Analyst and ClimateTech VC, Daniel Batten, has published a study on the potential impact of Bitcoin mining on global methane emissions. Bitcoin mining is the only industry with the necessary characteristics and incentive structure to be able to help the environment, the study claims. The study claims Bitcoin mining can eliminate 5.32% of all global emissions by 2045, which represents 23% of global emissions. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

All the pre-mined coins are "scams" in the sense that they are illegal securities offerings (due to the premine). This makes any technology considerations secondary. *Tribalism* is a funny way to describe the pushback by bitcoiners that reject the astroturfing promoted by altcoin marketing teams. It's telling that the main orchestrators of attacks to Bitcoin aren't by nocoiners but by altcoiners. After suffering severe FUD and manipulative narratives, when not blatant lies (that Bitcoin doesn't have smart contracts, that one does not need to run their own node, that Satoshi mine one million coins, just to name a few). When it's so clear that altcoiners miss no opportunity to throw Bitcoin under the ESG bus, I'm shocked to hear that they still expect sympathy from bitcoiners.
Astounding arrogance from you to be honest. I’d suggest dropping from the high horse and get down here. These companies are very aware of the sensitivity of sustainability among younger consumers and spend money, resources, and positions on sustainability / ESG topics. If you think you have some practical ways they can be better, then get in touch and tell them what you think they can do better. I completely refuse to take seriously someone who judges but doesn’t do anything.
It's easier to use the false ESG narrative to attack Bitcoin. The same people who dislike Bitcoin for it's carbon footprint are also the same people that buy almond milk and construct benches in 3rd world countries and then post it on Facebook. You know the type, usually white, family rich as fuck, believes government and money solves everything. The type of asshole that projects their narcissism on to a cause they vaguely understand and abandons said cause when it's inconvenient. Loud. Entitled. Morons. "John Oliver said Bitcoin uses too much energy! I understand what Bitcoin is because of a misleading analogy" These are the people that will never adopt Bitcoin because their lives are set. These people have never needed to examine economics. And their generational wealth will be squandered on their own ignorance and vanity.
tldr; Object Computing and BlockScience have partnered to develop a new open source price discovery mechanism and exchange protocol for carbon offsets. The mechanism, dubbed Automated Regression Market Makers (ARMMs), will offer the ability to develop highly-liquid, publicly-auditable, automated ESG marketplaces based on open data and price discovery. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

Fiat currency debasement versus Metcalfe's law in conjunction with Reeds law. At least you know you're steadily losing circa 7% per annum in Fiat. Check out TF Peterson's academic writings on Bitcoins value, it's pure maths and with any network value the only assumption is network growth. Ask yourself why you'd want to be in Bitcoin and not Fiat. Two columns, 'for' and 'against' and stick to facts. Bertrand Russell style. These far left deeply biased critics use the energy card whilst using bank accounts and things made by oil and gas, they are the biggest hypocrites known to humanity. They fail to be mindful of the other facets to ESG. Why don't they shut down the traditional banking system too? It is even more impactful in terms of using energy than Bitcoin. If this is all about energy use then surely the only equitable thing is to shut down all non-essential things which use energy? Christmas lights, computer gaming, sporting industry, all uses huge amounts of energy. Standard extreme views which always leads to prosperity for humanity doesn't it...selective dictatorship characteristics. The gap in equality grows and grows but I don't see these far left individuals talking about that or trying to find a solution. If people were actually being fair and logical they'd ask themselves; is there any good in finding a solution for millions of people to protect their wealth? How much better would the environment be if everyone on the planet could be lifted out of poverty? Reduction I. polluting habits, exploitation of the natural world and it's creatures to put food on your families table, rid the world of bush meat trade, poaching, drug trade, slavery trade etc etc Give people the means to protect their wealth and I'd very much imagine that the world starts becoming a better place. Unfortunately people cannot see things in a holistic way, they focus on siloed fashionable topics which they pursue to purely make themselves feel better about their lives. Total lacking in emotional intelligence as they are consumed by intellectual insecurity. The narcissist pandemic will rage on for years, they will never admit they are wrong even when the facts are undeniable. Not yours or mine concern, they will adopt CBDC'S and will have limited financial freedom. Great people create and do they don't go around pouring criticism onto others who are at least trying to improve things. Even if Bitcoin fails then surely it's better to at least try to improve the way humanity distributes economic gain and preserves individual wealth. If we carry on with this trajectory of poverty then how do you think it all ends?? Peacefully....I don't think so and I can safely say war in human society is far worse for the environment than anything else. When Bitcoin is 100% renewable my guess is the narrative from the elite publications and banking giants will change dramatically into pro Bitcoin. Energy grids are like musical symphonies and base loads are vital to the health of energy grids. Bitcoin fills this gap beautifully and energy companies know this now and are actively working with Bitcoin miners. 100% renewable and there's no attack. Draw your mind map (pro and con diagram) and stick to the facts. Then you'll have more conviction one way or the other. Individual choice is democracy, how I use my energy I pay for is my choice, especially if I create that energy myself.
Fair point. But with regulative clarity, bitcoin will explode in value. I don't believe stablecoins and exchanges are doing anything to create a gateway for newbs to BTC. They're creating a gambling addiction, and re-enforcing the behavior with celebrities, devs, and VC Twitter. When they're done, 99% of customers are broke, crying for a bailout, and have heads full of ESG FUD and mainstream talking points. It then falls on Maxi's to show up riding an orange colored horse, wearing two pistols, willing to endure the privation of clearing the land.
For every bitcoin maxi calling for the death of shitcoins via securities law, there's an ESG treehugger calling for the outright ban of PoW. The best approach is to fight tooth and nail for the entire industry. Shitcoin regulation IS a slippery slope and at the very least, protocols built on LN will become subject to retarded laws and hamper their growth.
The people pushing ESG the most are the ones who care the least about the environment. ESG is not about saving the planet. It's about exerting more control. Also, BTC mining uses 58% renewable energy and that figure is increasing. It's one of the cleanest industries in the world.
They recently threw Telsa under the ESG bus. The same bus he threw bitcoin under. Now he claims ESG is a scam! Karma is mutha.. [https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1526958110023245829](https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1526958110023245829)
ESG is coming to a democratic state near you! WHO, WEF and Young Global Leaders bringing this kind of restriction to your life. If the WHO announces a pandemic (real or otherwise) any participating country's citizens will have their constitutional rights suspended by unelected members of the WHO
tldr; Lawyers at DLA Piper and ServiceNow have joined forces to build a DLT-based solution that expands the power of digital workflows within and across organizations. The application is currently being used to track SLA real-time tokenized budgets between departments, legal entities, and external vendors. It is critical for the next generation of ESG digital assets. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*
