POV: most of the 2023 Democrats anti-crypto platform is rooted in an outdated belief that all cryptocurrency requires mining, and therefore, massive carbon emissions. An endorsement from major environmental orgs on proof-of-stake being OK would likely help shift that narrative.
Yeah, I think that’s a *part* of the perception problem. Early adopter value narrative was just so largely utilitarian/libertarian: ignoring environmental impact, exploiting lack of regs, evading taxes... and still persists. Not enough focus on humanism, equality, community organizing, financial/gov transparency.
