With global warming finally becoming something the majority of people are taking seriously, Bitcasino set the example straight for the crypto community by donating 101,010 trees (a binary number a nod to Bitcasino’s tech roots) to the #teamtrees movement that went viral last year, with a goal to plant 20 million trees by the beginning of 2020.
Bitcasino and its active player base rose to the occasion last November when players donated unused Loyalty Club points, with the crypto gaming platform matching these contributions at a 1:1 ratio. In total, over $100,00 was raised and donated, putting Bitcasino’s contribution next to the likes of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on the donation list.
Other several notable figures in the tech and influencer space donated as well, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and Youtubers Jeffree Star and Pewdiepie, racking up totals to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, sometimes millions.
For those unaware, Bitcasino’s new Loyalty Club is a recently launched rewards program that gets rid of generic deposit-based bonuses for rewards based on how often someone plays, as well as bonuses that are tailored to the individual’s preferences.
Tauri Tiitsaar, Director of Bitcasino, stated:
“It’s astonishing to see just how generous our players are and we are happy to have been able to represent the crypto community in the #TeamTrees movement. 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.”
The viral internet movement known as #teamtrees has reached its goal of 20 million trees and is actually hovering closer to 21.6 million trees at the time of writing.
The original goal of 20 million trees was actually reached in 55 days or less than 2 months. Thanks to the attention the movement received from high-level celebrities, entrepreneurs, and forward-thinking companies like Bitcasino, #teamtrees is able to help reverse at least some of the effects that deforestation is having on our global environment.
While the movement is now over, Bitcasino’s attitude isn’t. The next time another movement calls on the entire world to pitch in, you can count on Bitcasino to be one of the first companies in the cryptocurrency community to set an example for the others within and outside the sector.
