Cryptocurrency is undoubtedly the new world financial order that Millennials and Gen Z take pride in. However, this gleaming world of cryptocurrency is not untouched by dark undercurrents. Crypto mining is posing a great threat to the environment. Year after year, it is responsible for billions of tons of carbon dioxide emission with Bitcoin (BTC) mining alone causing the emission of 27.4 million tons of this global warming monster between mid-2021 and 2022.
The Crypto Mining Debris
Crypto mining uses highly specialized equipment. The computing chips function for only a year and a half before they are left redundant, leading to a humongous amount of non-biodegradable debris that pollutes every realm: soil, water, and air alike. Noteworthy that a single transaction causes about 400 grams of e-waste.
The Bitcoin and Proof of Work Mining
Bitcoin (BTC) mining uses blockchain to verify its transactions through complex mathematical algorithms that require specialized computers. This process, called ‘proof-of-work’ (PoW), is run on a massive amount of energy supply, along with hardware and e-waste.
Solana And Proof Of Stake Mining
Solana (SOL) on the other hand uses a 'proof-of-stake’ (PoS) mining model. The Solana Foundation asserts a significantly lower consumption per energy footprint. A single Solana transaction needs only as much energy as 2.5 google searches. It is also known as the energy-efficient blockchain for the same.
Big Eyes Coin’s Big Environmental Cause
Big Eyes Coin (BIG) seems to have an edge over the rest in terms of its acknowledgment of environmental causes, not just in words but through real-life practice as well. Big Eyes is wholly a community token that aims at transferring wealth into the DeFi ecosystem but simultaneously protecting an important part of our planet’s ecosystem: the oceans.
The Fish-Loving Cute Cat
Symbolically, Big Eyes takes pride in being a cat with big eyes that plans to generate big cash by being cute. It also aims to save the fish in the oceans because that’s what it loves to eat. Essentially, Big Eye is 70% available to the public on presale, and 20% for exchanges, 5% held in the marketing wallet to stay on top of its game and grow worldwide. The remaining 5% goes to a dedicated charity wallet, ready for donations to be made.
Sea Shepherd Safeguarding The Oceans
Big Eyes supports a variety of climate justice charities. Sea Shepherd is a ‘direct action ocean conservation movement’ committed to protecting and preserving the oceans. It intercepts by employing vessels that keep an eye on illegal fishing and safeguarding marine life.
Individual nations turn a blind eye to the protection of marine life due to a lack of resources, funds, and ambiguous transnational boundaries. This is where Sea Shepherd steps in. It has not only triumphed in saving the lives of 6000 whales in the Southern Ocean but also raised a voice against the slaughter of seals in Canada. To say the least, Sea Shepherd was successful in blocking new drilling operations in 2016 that caused an oil spill, a major marine life hazard.
BIG Donations To Charity
Big Eyes is currently on stage 9 of its presale. The first donation to the charity was done during the second stage of action. By stage four, they donated to numerous charities which can be seen online. Currently, they have raised $17.5 million and a sizable part of it goes in for saving the environment. This novel altruistic approach by Big Eyes is worth both admiration and emulation by one and all.
