The campaign was held from September 1 till October 31. All the prizes directly contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint since switching to electric vehicles is considered one of the most important pillars for slowing climate change. YouHodler has also partnered with ImpactScope, which will offset the carbon footprint of the Bitcoin transactions made by the participants and donate to one of the following projects: grassland restoration in Kenya, wetland conservation in Borneo, or rainforest conservation in Brazil. Thanks to the collaboration, each participant could offset nearly 2.6 tonnes of carbon footprint (the total amount of emissions offset is 334.5 tonnes).
“On the one hand, crypto tokens have their undeniable benefits that are shared by users all over the world. On the other hand, Bitcoin mining produces as much carbon dioxide as the whole country of Sri Lanka does in a year”, says Ilya Volkov, CEO & Founder of YouHodler. “As a responsible crypto company, we felt it was important to step in and push the industry to work on this issue and ultimately make Bitcoin green”.
