Hey All, GoodShibe here!
I like starting off with good things, don't you? Well, here's something great! Remember that thread
I put up a couple of days ago, asking for donations for Bell Let's Talk (even though we missed the day and probably wouldn't get any coverage for it) - well, together we raised 80,000 DOGE - which Moolah_
added 100K - which meant that we raised about $268.71 USD. Well, as it turns out, Moolah_
wasn't done yet - so they rounded it up to an even $1000 and donated it on /Dogecoin
's behalf to The Canadian Association of Mental Health. You can see the receipt here
. So, let's give all the generous shibes who contributed to this effort, a sound round of ap-paws (yeah, I said it...).
As it turns out yesterday's post
caused quite a bit of discussion - lots of passionate shibes coming out to discuss where we're going, how we see our coin -- and even our community -- evolving over time.
I think it's a fantastic thing that we can have these kinds of discussions openly, and that, even when we may not always agree with one another, we do try to see eye to eye and understand where each shibe is coming from. I have to admit that then I first posted my article, I was somewhat ambivalent about either side of the issue -- and I worked to keep my language neutral as I could. Explain the facts, try to explain how it might effect us all, and some ideas on how it might be fixed. Over the course of the discussion that followed, I found myself being swayed by the arguments toward the coin moving in an 'inflationary' direction. I say this now, publicly, not in an attempt to sway you, but to acknowledge a bias that's started to form toward one direction.
I believe that it's through understanding my own biases that I can work to try and keep an even keel, try and stay neutral until the facts clearly point toward a direction. In acknowledging such a bias, it encourages me to look THAT much harder at the other arguments against it. Look for arguments that weaken said bias. I want to make sure that I'm not just 'believing' something to be true, I want the facts to support said belief structure. So, by stating this, I want you to know where I'm at on this issue, that I'm looking into the benefits and flaws of both a 'Deflationary' and 'Inflationary' coin. Trying to wrap my head around it properly so that if I do end up supporting one direction, I know why and can state it clearly.
That said, I still believe that there are ways to meet in the middle -- I have no idea what they are just yet -- but we have a whole year or more to find a way to come up with a solution with calm, rational discussion on all sides.
Moving on to more fun news - and thank you for bearing with me - we've got some fantastic community efforts underway that I want to take a moment to hightlight:
- myniga562 started by donating 50,000 DOGE worth of pizzas to a local homeless shelter in this thread. And, fuelled by that great experience, he and his team raised 2 Million DOGE then went and spent 350,403 on another 75 Pizzas, and fed 164 people. Bra-freaking-vo!
- m0bility1nert is planning a big Dogecoin publicity stunt on February 3rd - to get onto Good Morning America/Today Show while handing out Paper wallets and giving out stickers, etc. So if you have any way to help him out, please do. Everyone else, please keep an eye out for that!
- serupento is raising money for bullet and stab-proof vests for police dogs. And, as donors, we can have the Dogecoin logo embroidered on the side! Check that out!
In the news:
And finally, just for fun:
It's 11:14AM EST, we're at 40.93% of DOGEs found. Our Global Hashrate it rising from ~91 to ~95 Gigahashes per second (after an early morning spike to ~218) and our Difficulty is falling from ~1547 to ~1402. Looks like a busy day, folks!
Have a great one!
As always, I appreciate your support!
PS: Sorry about the late post, all, turns out I've been writing in fits and starts, dealing with some /dogecoinscamwatch
EDIT 1: I've had some criticism regarding how I go about my reporting, and that's fine. Criticism, I can handle.
I firmly believe that, whatever the news is, when I know it, good or bad, the community needs to know so that, together, we at least have the ability to make informed decisions.
If you want it, fine, if you don't care, that's also fine, but at least you're aware - at least you get to choose.
I take this responsibility - the gift of trust you've bestowed upon me - seriously, and try my best at it. Will I make mistakes? Absolutely. And you won't always agree with me. And that's fine too. But I will always do my best for the community, and, succeed or fail, my heart will always be in the right place, working for the good of us all.
