But things are just getting started…

Any extra $ada rewards gained after the end of the MELD ISPO will be donated to Veritree — in support of the Cardano Global Impact Challenge. 🌲 🌲

The MELD ISPO is over!

But this is only the beginning. We have so much in store for the coming months and are super excited to share it with the community.

Please note:

as discussed in MELD Roadmap Update — 2

🤔 What to do with your $ada after the MELD ISPO

Below are some different suggestions of what to do with your $ada after the MELD ISPO:

  • Donate to the Cardano Global Impact Challenge
  • Participate in another ISPO

⚠️ For those who don’t know how to redelegate their $ada to a different stake pool, or ISPO, please check out the guide below 👇
How to redelegate your $ada to a different stake pool

Donate to the Cardano Global Impact Challenge

We were recently chatting with the Cardano Foundation regarding their Global Impact Challenge, and as a result of our chat, we have decided to keep our pools open for an additional epoch. The $ada earned from that epoch will be donated directly to Veritree for the Cardano Forest!

The Cardano Global Impact Challenge — in partnership with Veritree (who have planted over 63 million trees and aim to plant+verify 1 billion trees by 2030) — is an invitation to the global Cardano community to make donations to Veritree using Cardano’s native token $ada.

“We are very happy to see MELD take a leading role in support of the Global Impact Challenge and innovations within ecosystem participation. “
— Jeremy Firster, Head of Partnerships and Executive Officer of Cardano Foundation

Ending remarks…

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us thus far in the MELD ISPO. 🤝 We started the ISPO back in early July not knowing what to expect in regards to the community interest of the ISPO model. But, within the first 24 hours, we were quick to realize the interest from the community for the new fundraising method. We were blown away by the interest people had towards the ISPO model, Cardano, MELD and the greater vision MELD stands for.
(see below)

As a side product to the initiative, we’ve had an amazing community be built up, have grown the awareness of new fundraising models, and have attracted thousands of new users into the Cardano ecosystem because of it and we can’t thank you guys enough for all your continued support and effort towards MELD! This is only the beginning… 💞

MELD — Be Your Own Bank

We think it’s essential for everyone to gain control of their financial lives and have equal access to financial instruments used by professionals, not just centralized institutions, governments, or the 1%. We want to provide financial freedom and control to the masses, including the unbanked.

We have a long-term goal to enable the $15 trillion that is currently locked out of the global economy, including 2 billion individuals worldwide that are either underbanked or have no access to banking services whatsoever, access to these tools. These are the people that are paying the highest fees, getting the worst customer service, and they are the ones that are having the most problems.

Our vision is to create an ecosystem that empowers individuals to regain financial control by providing them with the tools and services they need to manage their money on their terms. Whether that be creating a collateralized debt position (CDP) with cryptocurrency, earning an interest return for lending fiat to borrowers, or even participating in reward incentive programs, we strive to provide our users with the functions they need to manage their own financial lives.
