Cryptocurrency advocates discussed a proposal by Makerdao founder Rune Christensen to fund a science-based sustainability fund. An idea that aims to fight climate change and misinformation about energy solutions. Christensen asks for 20,000 MKR tokens to further the idea. The Maker Constitution project has come under fire on social media, with one person comparing Christensen’s idea to the Effective Altruism movement, which is backed by controversial FTX co-founder Sam Bankman-Fried.
Makerdao co-founder’s climate change initiative meets with mixed reactions
A recent Makerdao Maker Improvement Proposal (MIP) by co-founder Rune Christensen proposes to use 20,000 makedao (MKR) tokens to fund a science sustainability fund. According to Christensen, “Scientific sustainability is a core tenet of the Constitution Maker that recognizes the unique critical relationship between financial infrastructure and the global environmental risks of climate change.” This statement was made in a post on the Makerdao forum.
Christensen is a staunch climate change activist who wants the fund to fight “misinformation about energy solutions that have been proven in real life to achieve scalable decarbonization.” At the time of writing, 20,000 makedao (MKR) tokens is approximately $14 million using today’s exchange rates.
Although Christensen thinks the science of climate change is settled, there are still those who refuse its existence and many people insist that there is “no climate catastrophe”. Some crypto advocates scoffed at Christensen’s plan, with a call the “trash” proposition and its proponents “thieves destroying value for MKR holders. » Another individual interrogates using a stablecoin project to fight climate change.
A person commented that it “looks like Rune has become complete effective altruism,” referring to the movement promoted by former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried. In response to this comment, another asked“Why doesn’t he use his own money instead of the MKR Cash?” While some people like Christensen’s idea, others recommended that Makerdao is partnering with Klimadao, a climate finance project.
