I got a reply telling me Celo (the blockchain they are using) is carbon neutral so nothing to worry about.I sent them a mail where I voiced certain concerns regarding their plans. Got a regurgitated version of the info on the homepage back. Not ideal to say the least. It was also sent way too fast to be anything other than an automated response. The only things they pointed there was that backers/creators wouldn't notice anything different. Backers could pay with credit/debit cards, and creators would get ther money in fiat currencies as before (US Dollars, British Pounds, Euros etc)
I really hope that a human actually looks the feedback they get, but I am sceptical. I know from experience that normal support-issues are handled by a human, but those go to a different mail...
They only have 84 employees so hopefully they will become aware of how backers/creators feel pretty quickly. I think the VCs they are trying to attract with this won’t be very impressed that they are upsetting some of their most loyal customers either.
