The Old Dog Asks: Is The Steem Blockchain Enviromentally Friendly? Contest Winners!

6개월 전

I would love to see thousands of  Steem blockchain users clean up litter using the hashtag "cleanplanet"! Imagine the good that it would do for the environment and for the reputation of Steem!

Last week I posted a challenge for more Steemers to get involved in this environmentally friendly posting activity. 

 The Old Dog Discusses: Clean Planet Empowers Steemers to Change The World! Contest! 

I offered a 2 Steem prize to each of the first 10 Steemers to pick up trash and make a post according to the requirements listed at @cleanplanet. Three members responded and I'm sending them each 2 Steem for a total of 6 Steem. 

Here Are The Three Participants

1.) @phortun

My 5th post for @cleanplanet: section of beach at Punta Esmeralda cleaned

2.) @anttn

Pickin Up Trash For Clean Planet

What will I do with the 14 unclaimed Steem ?

I'm Donating 14 Steem Power to The Account @cleanplanet

As @cleanplanet builds their SP they will be able to give out higher rewards to cleanplanet posters and hopefully we can start to see this project go viral!

They've got a web site at which explains what this project is all about.

Their account is looking better all the time but it would be great to see more SP delegated to them.

Get Rewarded For Picking Up Trash!

It's simple. All you have to do is:  

  • Document with videos or pictures  you or your friends cleaning up litter and putting it in the trash
  • Make a post about it on the Steem blockchain and use #cleanplanet as one of the tags.
  • Get rewarded!

The Payments will go out in the next 24 hours so watch your  wallet and let's all continue to be amazed by the possibility of  sending  funds with zero cost! Feel the power, feel the speed of the Steem blockchain!

If you like contests and would like to see more of them here  on the Steem Blockchain please consider upvoting my post. Contests help  our community so spread the word! 

What Do You Think?

  • Do you remember the ice bucket challenge? 17 million participated in that!
  • Can you challenge another Steemer to do the cleanplanet challenge?
  • Can we make this thing go viral?
  • How much good can we do for the planet and for the good reputation of Steem?

I challenge @dswigle to pick up some litter and make a post according to their instructions.

Thanks for following me on my travels and I look forward to sharing my adventures with you.  

Until next time,

Thank you so much Old Dog. I am planning to do a weekly clean, at least for a while and see how it goes. You know I host a few tags that have become rather large. I am hoping to do the same for Clean Planet. I am going to try and get #trashthursday off the ground. Just know I always appreciate you and all that you do for the community!


Your a great Steemer and if you can help give @cleanplanet a boost that would be awesome!

Seems it's a good way to challenge than stupid ice bucket! I hope to participate this one!



That would be great!

I challenge @dswigle to pick up some litter and make a post according to their instructions.

Well, of course, you do! Well, I will do my best as we just did the spring into action clean up before the post. I didn't think about making a post for it, but I am pretty sure if I try really hard, I can find more trash, somewhere!

Thanks for the mention @kus-knee! You are the best! ;)

It should be fun and do some good. Thanks for being a good sport!


Hehehe... :)

For Mother Earth? Anytime.

Oops! Reading the title I was expecting something quite different. What came to my mind was how EOS network inspired all their top 21 Block Producers to go carbon neutral and I was expecting something similar with Steem Witnesses.

But this is something bigger! CleanPlanet is about cleaning of whole planet and not just Steem chain. Just awesome!


It's a worthwhile question, though, and one that's hard to answer. Just how much energy is used by the blockchain? I've worked with some rough numbers and guesstimated, but never had any thorough answers. And there was (or is coming?) A change that will lower witness costs, presumably lowering energy requirements?


This is true. It will move fro high RAM storage to cheaper hard drive storage I believe.

In any case POS is uses much less energy than POW.


Absolutely. My father's issue with it, though, is he's trying to figure out if it's more efficient than Facebook.

It is a very exciting project! Thanks for having a look!

Wow, thank you for the shout-out and the reward @kus-knee! I feel very honored. I just wish more people joined your initiative. Maybe next time :) I am also going to come up with some additional motivation for those who decide to go out and do something for @cleanplanet. Let´s make some noise for this great cause and make it go viral ;)


Maybe you can challenge another Steemer that you know.

Congratulation for @phortun @anttn @old-guy-photos.:)


Thanks for your support!

Sounds like you might run this challenge again, if you do my granddaughter and I will participate.


That would be great!

I already participate in this action and also believe that we need to carry out such actions as much as possible since I saw with my own eyes a huge amount of garbage and was horrified when I collected it. Thank you for one more motivation to the action of cleaning the planet


Great to read that you are involved!

Everything is okay! 👌

You received an automatic upvote, because I believe in you and I love what you create! 😉

A huge hug from @amico! 🤗

😍 I love promoting @steembasicincome, even with #sbi-skip! 😜

If you dislike this automatic message, please let me know: thanks! 🙏


I am so happy that everything is OK!

hey @kus-knee aka the Old Dog, you definitely rock !

Thanks a lot for your support, this means a lot to me (and for the planet !)

see you soon !!!


Glad that you’re active, having fun and cleaning up!


Always ;-)

Congrats to all those that were able to participate. Sounds like my wife wants to get some housecleaning done this weekend so maybe the perfect opportunity for my son and I to head out and pick up some trash at the park.

If we're able to I'll definitely create a post!


That would be great. Please message me if you do so and I’ll have a look.
