As it is always warm, always sunny, Nimuë welcomes the shadow of the trees after becoming one with the water. Therefore, she’ll donate 5% of pool fees to #TeamTrees. We must revitalize the green lungs of Mother Nature, one epoch at a time. 🌴🌲🌳
#TeamTrees started when the internet challenged MrBeast to plant 20 million trees to celebrate hitting the 20M subscriber milestone on YouTube. He teamed up with fellow YouTuber Mark Rober and they started a campaign with the goal of collecting enough funds to plant at least 20M trees by 2020, which was achieved! Donations to #TeamTrees will go to the Arbor Day Foundation, who will plant one tree in a forest of high need for every dollar donated. There’re planting projects on every continent not named Antarctica, both on public and private lands.
Nimuë likes animals too and will therefore donate another 5% to Vétérinaires Sans Frontières. 🐐🐃🐫 Vétérinaires Sans Frontières (VSF) helps livestock keepers in remote African regions to build a better future. That future begins with healthy animals, but they do more than just vaccinating and taking care of herds. They help the population to improve their livestock farming and everything that is connected to it. From microcredits, sales, water and pasture management to training, agricultural equipment, emergency aid, peace negotiations and advocacy.
Nimuë Lady of the Lake Pool is a member of the Mission Driven Pools alliance, a collective of mission-based Cardano stake pool operators.
Donations will occur at irregular intervals when a sizable amount is accrued, which can differ across donations. We’ll make at least one donation to #TeamTrees and one donation to VSF per quarter however. The percentage set aside for donations each epoch is taken from the pool earnings from fixed cost and margin and will be held in ADA until the moment of donation. Epochs without blocks have no rewards and hence don’t contribute to donations.
In the following table you can track the total amount accumulated, donated and waiting to be donated.
1 2.770% for epochs 256–263, 5% since epoch 264 / the USD amount corresponds to the amount of trees
2 5% since epoch 267
The accumulated rewards are updated up to epoch 313. All donations are done with an euro account. The required amount of ADA, including transaction and conversion costs, will be subtracted from the recipient’s balance and converted to euro at the moment of the donation. Because donations to #TeamTrees are done in USD, the conversion rate to euro of the payment provider is used in the table above. For euro donations to VSF, the conversion rate to USD at the moment of donation is looked up online.
Here you find a list of all individual donations done by Nimuë. Donations can also be tracked in the MDP Donations GitHub.
