“Crazy”, ecology and blockchain

«If our generation does not do the impossible, waiting for us unthinkable»
Petra Kelly

A recent speech at the UN by Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old girl from Sweden, who accused the country’s leaders of criminal complicity in the extinction of humanity and wildlife due to a worsening ecology, caused an ambiguous reaction both from the ruling elite and among journalists. The leaders of France and Germany even allowed themselves to carefully criticize environmental activist Greta Thunberg.

The condescending, and sometimes overtly malicious reaction to her speech made me think. Perhaps Greta was already just late with her desperate accusation. Her cry from the UN rostrum and the inadequate reaction of the ruling elite suggests that on our planet, in our common home, irreversible processes of destruction have begun and nothing can be corrected, we are approaching a disaster. In this situation, the simplest thing is to call Greta crazy and not change anything.

I am in solidarity with Greta and I hope that there are many such “crazy” people on the planet. My daughter Erica, 16 years old. She is also concerned about environmental issues. Erica and her school friend founded the eco-start EcoStart, which won the school business accelerator. We, adults, modified it and made it global. But more about that below.

Looking out the window at a landscape that does not change over the years from a home sofa or from a comfortable office, strolling through city parks or picking out on a picnic in an ennobled forest – we might think that an environmental disaster is just a fiction of crazy environmental activists. For most of us, the Earth seems eternal. Above us, though a dirty, but still blue sky. Silent above us, but the birds are singing. And the forest is still standing. In places. And we make plans – what we leave for the children, what they leave for the grandchildren. And no one is ready to hear the question: “How will my great-great-grandchildren live?”, – the answer: “No way,” “They just won’t have time,” “The planet will perish.”Nature gave man the opportunity to adapt to everything, so his global killing is comfortable and time-consuming.

The harbingers of a global environmental catastrophe are visible everywhere. In China, where the sun is not visible on a cloudless day, people wear masks. Or try a boat ride on the Ganges, Mississippi or King River – on smelly, almost lifeless rivers with islands of garbage. Or go to Siberia where the forests burned down and where Baikal is poisoned. Our cities continue to grow, new residential neighborhoods are being erected dangerously close to landfills, and residents of these areas do not know or prefer not to know that life near the landfill is an increase in oncology and allergies.

But we are like cockroaches. We are already used to it. We adapted, easily changing the future life of our descendants to endless consumption. We treat ecologists as urban lunatics and hide long-term problems “in the closet”.

Of course, many people think about what kind of ending humanity can expect. They are Homo sapiens. And therefore, they are ready for a “serious” conversation on an environmental topic. We are ready to read some article by a wise environmental scientist or indignantly like a photo of a garbage island in the ocean … so that later yawns sweetly and, according to human tradition, quietly push this problem that is irrelevant for everyday life … into the pantry.
Therefore, when the furious Greta screamed about her conscience “and the betrayal of future generations”, they hastened to call her crazy. Undereducated. Not of this world. She shouts: “Disaster!”, When there is a clear blue sky, a cozy world outside the window, and no one wants to run away. And where to run, if there really is an ecological Apocalypse? To Mars?

But there is another way. I propose creating a fund for future generations. From this fund we will finance environmental projects that have the greatest positive effect on the ecology of the entire planet. Our Ecostart project, which is a global eco-business expanding the possibilities of financing green projects using blockchain technology, can serve as a prototype of such a fund. EcoStart is not just a project for profit, but also a decisive step towards saving our planet.

The main problem faced by environmental projects is the lack of funding for environmental protection. The EcoStart project is another fundraising tool for financing environmental activities:
– A Marketplace uniting all participants of environmental communities (green business, investors, volunteers)
– A Fundraising application -for creating personalized digital tokens as tools for financing environmental (green) projects approved by EcoStart experts
– EcoStart’s own cryptocurrency TerraEcoCoin (TECO) generated by our energy-efficient POI algorithm, with automatic transfer of part of the transaction fee to the Environmental Investment Fund.
– A private Crypto-messaging system, based on P2P technology (peer-to-peer);
– An Environmental Investment Fund (EIF) to further finance environmental projects (IEF).
– A decentralized system of expertise and recommendations (the formation of ratings will be based on the confidence of the platform participants).
– An open API allowing developers to create applications for the implementation and support of environmental projects.
– A Space Surface Monitoring Application to find hidden areas of pollution
– A system of motivation (rewards) for participants of the platform
– An environmental lottery, 50% of the funds remaining after the payment of winnings and operating costs will be directed to the Environmental Investment Fund (for jurisdictions with a permitted activity).

Our team, in partnership with consultant Mauro Andriotto (Andriotto Financial Services), is ready to develop and promote the EcoStart project and preferred convertible stock will be issued to attract investors.
