Hmm, I think there may have been some miscommunication. I’m not against giving money to Gitcoin, and for now it’s the most mature solution for distributing donations. I’m saying that the percentage of income donated should increase as TVL increases.
What do you mean by “it” here? If you’re referring to donating to WhalerDAO instead of Gitcoin, then I agree with you. WhalerDAO is for advocates and builders, not for distributing donations. If you’re referring to increasing the percentage of income donated, can you elaborate on your reasoning why you think 1% is enough?
For a frame of reference, “the 20 richest Americans donated roughly $8.7 billion to charity in 2018, just 0.8 percent of their collective net worth” (source). And that’s 0.8% of their wealth, not income; let’s say they donate 8% of their income. That means donating 1% of income makes yEarn less charitable than billionaires, who are not really the most charitable people in the world.
