Bitcoin, Etherium, Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, NFTs, normies...what does this all mean?! The future has arrived and we are in the middle of a generational shift on how the world operates. People are looking more closely at where their money is going, how it's invested, and the emerging digital currency economy. As we enter this new reality, we are slowly dipping our toes into the new and exciting land of cryptocurrency. 5 Gyres started taking crypto in April of this year and we have already received over $40K in crypto donations! But don’t worry, unlike space cowboys Musk, Branson, and Bezos, we’re still tethered to the real world and aren’t ready to go to the moon just yet.
Not so fun fact: did you know that a traditional bank invests the funds you deposit, oftentimes to environmentally harmful industries such as fossil fuel companies? By banking with Bank of the West (check out our podcast HERE ([link removed]) ) and only accepting certain cryptocurrencies that don’t require the tremendous energy draw associated with Bitcoin, 5 Gyres can address that problematic reality. (We’ve also learned that the environmental and social impacts of taking crypto are not always what they seem, see our new FAQ HERE ([link removed]) .)
When you invest your money with 5 Gyres, here’s what you can expect from us. We will:
* Make our science available as open sourced data through blockchain technology
* Empower the next generation with knowledge through engaging educational material
* Work with a variety of stakeholders to ensure equity and justice in the execution of new programs and projects
* Provide needed funds to ambassadors doing regional work focused on plastic pollution
Consider CRYPTO as your method to give this season! ([link removed])
