Now vegans have their own cryptocurrency
The VeganNation platform positions itself as the first vegan-oriented community to launch its own cryptocurrency called VeganCoin.
The platform is an online marketplace selling vegan products and services, as well as allowing users to share vegan-oriented content such as recipes, tips and joint purchases at nearby restaurants. Users VeganNation can use VeganCoin to encourage each other in the provision of these services.
Through the use of blockchain technology and smart contracts, the founders of the network claim that VeganCoin will be able to offer a level of transparency that will allow to avoid participation in all sorts of atrocities associated with the average methods of food production today.
Isaac Thomas, co-founder and CEO of VeganNation, has been a staunch vegan for two years and hopes that the platform will help make this lifestyle more accessible and sustainable for people.
“The world’s population is expected to grow to 9 billion by 2050, and then veganism will be absolutely necessary,” Thomas said in an interview with Newsweek. “I see a great future for veganism in blockchain technology, which allows to create Nations that will be based on a common ideology and beliefs, not on the geographical principle. The opportunity to give our new nation a monetary system will give great opportunities to individuals and society as a whole.”
