Crypto gaming pioneer Bitcasino, now into its sixth year of operations, ensured that Bitcoin gamers made their contributions to the planet known, with a $100,000 donation made towards the global #teamtrees movement that will help plant 20 million trees early this year.
To be precise, Bitcasino’s donation of $101,010 will go towards the cost of planting that exact number of trees, with each tree estimated to cost $1. This made it the first notable blockchain brand to have made the contribution, in a viral campaign that has swept the world, pulling in generous financial support from the likes of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey — himself a Bitcoin advocate — and Tesla chief Elon Musk.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without a loyal following at Bitcasino, who pooled together resources in November to donate all unused Loyalty Club points to the worthy cause.
Pledging to match every dollar given, Bitcasino eventually raised that six-figure dollar donation. Paying tribute to the binary roots of the crypto community, Bitcasino generously topped up additional funds to ensure $101010 was the symbolic total from the crypto gaming community.
Always at the forefront
The #teamtrees effort continues to go viral even today, with healthy shares all over the internet. One criticism, however, is the noticeable lack of support from mid-sized tech firms, with only a few of them volunteering to aid the cause. Bitcasino itself appears to be the only participant representing crypto enterprises.
Itself a veteran industry player, Bitcasino is pleased to still be leading the way six years after its inception.
It was with firms like Bitcasino.io doing their bit that the #teamtrees campaign managed to surpass its goal. It has now collected enough funds to plant over 21.5 million trees, or over 1.5 million trees more than originally envisioned. have stepped up in the global effort to green the planet.
Bitcasino Director Tauri Tiitsaar admits that even they were taken by surprise by the level of support shown from players:
“By making just a small addition to our loyalty club, we were able to have such a big impact on a global cause, and want to take this as an opportunity to challenge others in our industry and community to stand together with us in raising awareness on the important topic of climate change.”
#teamtrees is an ongoing social media challenge started by famed American YouTuber better known as MrBeast.Having met its goal of raising enough funds to plant 20 million trees, the collaborative fundraising event has already identified the initial locations for planting the first trees, together with Arbor Day Foundation.
Though its early target was met, the campaign continues and over a million additional US dollars have already been raised since the new year. To learn more about our planet’s biggest push yet to repopulate Earth with more trees, visit the #teamtrees official website.
