This post is gauging interest and searching for collaborators in formally proposing that 1% of AAVE transaction fees go towards RedemptionDAO.
What is RedemptionDAO?
27 Million Hectares of protected rainforest are up for auction in the Congo. This is a larger plot of land than all of the National Parks in the USA combined. The bidders are oil companies looking to exploit the land for resources. A grassroots team of over 200 Web3 environmentalists formed RedemptionDAO (redemptionDAO on twitter) to try to raise the funds to win the auction, allowing the continued protection of the land by helping the community earn carbon credits for the avoided deforestation of the peatlands and trees in this area. Donors have already pledged $74,000 but this isn’t enough. AAVE has the opportunity to show the world that web3 can make positive change in the world.
AAVE has the chance to make an impact on the climate crisis, raise awareness about the DEX, and change the public perception of crypto.
