8SQRD Stake Pool: Mission-Driven
The Good Initiatives Fund (TGIF)
8SQRD Pool is a mission-driven pool. The Good Initiatives Fund (TGIF) was created to support non-profit, charitable, and non-government organizations using rewards from our staking pool. Our first mission for social good is to fight anti-Asian racism. We elaborate more in our blog post.
A portion of pool-owner rewards will be allocated to a pool of funds that will responsibly contribute to humanitarian efforts that create positive social impact. The Good Initiatives Fund (TGIF) was created to separate rewards that go to 8QSRD operations and rewards for charitable causes. TGIF endeavours to make regular donations to non-profit, charitable, or non-government organizations with positive social impact. We encourage the community to make recommendations to our philanthropic strategy.
