Citizen Warrior Foundation (CWF) is a leading force in the world of social impact finance, dedicated to advancing financial empowerment and protecting depositors worldwide. Our core belief is that financial empowerment is a powerful tool for reducing poverty, stimulating economic growth, and enhancing the well-being of working and middle-class individuals. At CWF, we are on a mission to ensure accountability in the financial ecosystem, whether in DeFi/CeFi, and to promote ethical leadership within all organizations dealing with Digital Assets.
Our unwavering commitment is to educate the public about DeFi, digital assets, and how to avoid predatory practices in the ever-evolving web3 landscape. Knowledge empowers individuals, enabling them to make informed decisions. Through our educational initiatives, conducted in collaboration with public, private, and NGO leaders, we strive to enhance transparency within the financial system. We aim to assist depositors and prospective investors in making wise choices. It’s essential to note that our information serves as an educational resource only, not financial advice.
As part of our educational endeavors, we are uniting bright minds in blockchain, digital assets, and emerging technologies to address long-standing systemic issues throughout our society.
Through these initiatives, CWF and our partners are working towards a more inclusive, secure, and transparent DeFi ecosystem, prioritizing the welfare of all users. By nurturing a sense of community and promoting responsible leadership, we aim to create a safer and more dependable environment for everyone concerned with monetary policy and look to supplement their dependence on TradFi and help preserve our civil liberties as we embark on the digital transformation that lies ahead. These efforts are crucial for establishing an alternative banking system based on transparency, democratization, and financial inclusion.
We are also dedicated to financial empowerment and depositor protection, advocating global banking and crypto lending access. Our collaboration with organizations like the Government Blockchain Association ensures that companies in DeFi/CeFi meet the recognized minimally expected quality assurance standards and voluntarily become credentialed to regain our trust following the summer of ’22 CeFi/DeFi implosion. This increased credentialization enhances the adoption of best practices, offering depositors more reliable protection against fraudulent activities.
At the core of our mission are the values of duty, honor, transparency, accountability, and justice. These principles are essential for a robust financial system and must be upheld to foster an open and trustworthy Digital Asset market and DeFi ecosystems. By communities, self-policing the criminal element within the market will help minimize the likelihood of over-regulation and innovation-stifling regulations.
We recognize blockchain technology’s and digital assets’ potential to revolutionize global business practices and interpersonal interactions. However, ethical and responsible stewardship is imperative in the DeFi space. Thus, we are always receptive to new meaningful partnerships with organizational leadership embodying the character we promote. Download a free copy of our Citizen Warrior handbook today to learn more about who we are, what we believe, and why we have chosen this battle as our own.
Join us in this vital endeavor to champion responsible leadership and to hold alleged predators accountable. By uniting, we can ensure that emerging technology benefits all. Support our mission through a tax-deductible donation or by scheduling a meeting to contribute to our efforts in establishing reasonable standards for digital asset organizations.
After a 14-month investigation, we are happy to announce that we have submitted and will continue submitting our findings to numerous authorities. Follow us on our socials so once we are allowed to disclose our findings, you will be amongst the first to know and ought respond accordingly.
Citizen Warrior Foundation
If your issued 1099 for either of the “alleged” criminal enterprises does not measure up, we welcome you to contact us asap at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looks like Celsius made a “correction” just in time… wonder who may have tipped them off as to this systemic error? Shout out to K&E – glad you listened. Wish you listened a bit closer but still, we all ought give credit when credit is due (be it for actions taken due to legal obligation or otherwise).
For those of you who cannot afford your tax bill derived from income generated from the assets you deposited on either of these apps, we invite you to educate your state officials on the manner so perhaps they can afford reasonable accommodations. Our Founder & Executive Director Michael Benzaken, in his personal capacity, is emailing governors across the country to educate them on the personal toll this event has taken on his life and suggesting a reasonable ’22 tax accommodation should be made for Celsius & FTX claimants. Take note: all Governors email are listed here and if your state governor’s email is not listed and you can get ahold of it, pls DM it directly to Mike on twitter @realMikeBenz.
His ask for ’22 tax accommodations for Celsius & FTX claimants is simple – Any taxes due per income generated on Celsius or FTX during the ’22 fiscal year be frozen until our next fiscal year. Further, that these frozen tax liabilities should not incur fees or accrue interest during the freeze period.
Further take note that while CWF is not structured to endorse or advocate for any type of legislation, we thought it appropriate to educate the public on both our own findings and Mike’s efforts in furtherance of mitigating further harm towards those victimized by Celsius & FTX.
Feel free to copy and paste Mike’s text per his tweet below and @ your state governor to help educate them and open a constructive dialogue concerning any actions that may wish to take on behalf of verified Celsius and/or Celsius claimants.
Governor @ – Kindly consider ’22 tax relief for #Celsius & #FTX claimants.
Learn more here: citizenwarrior.foundation/rescuing-cefi-ftx-celsius &
DM @realMikeBenz to act quickly & mitigate unnecessary harm today.
Now that you’ve done your part with which Celsius & FTX claimants are entirely grateful, we invite you to join us on a walk down memory lane to visit some of the more spicey milestones of the Celsius & FTX sagas. If you care to share any source documentation with us along the way, we simply can’t stop you from anonymously uploading documentation material to any alleged criminality by either company per the randomly placed button below (you can’t miss it).
The timeline is a real nailbiter. Enjoy it, Share it, & Show us Some Love Wherever You Find Yourself Chillin’ in the Interwebs. Enjoy!
We at Citizen Warrior Foundation believe wholly in conscious free-marketeering (we have a genuine disdain for the perversion of linguistics for ideological purposes such as the use of the word “capitalism” as an acceptable stand-in for reasonably regulated “free-markets”). As a nonprofit private operating foundation, we have the privilege and legal obligation to work for the betterment of our stakeholders, unlike what our commitment would otherwise be in private equity, for example.
As such, we are committed to providing education and services within emergent tech to help lead the way towards a more sustainable future for our planet and future generations. We recognize the need to address the challenges facing our environment, and we will explore ways to reduce industry’s negative externalities on local communities and the environment. At the top of our list is to conserve resources, innovate new solutions, and promote individual and social awareness of the importance of responsible stewardship of our planet. Our sustainability commitments are based on scientific evidence, particularly the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
We have familiarized ourselves with each of the IPCC’s 5 Assessment Reports (ARs) and the most recent findings from 2018. Although such reports only occur every 5-7 years due to limited funding, we will donate our own analysis of the quality of their methodology, the efficacy and accuracy of their means of measurement, and a comprehensive critique of what we see as areas of improvement in the IPCC’s modeling. As we expand our activities across emergent tech, we will incorporate the following capabilities to deliver to nations committed to environmental stewardship:
AI-driven causal analysis through ongoing processing of big data to produce accurate modeling and simulations for mitigating harm that may arise from drastic temperature changes. We believe it is wise to explore how best to contend with astral collisions that shaped, reshaped, and likely reshaped human civilization since we were still of the Erectus persuasion.
Launch of a decentralized enterprise-level carbon credit/offset marketplace.
Development of Smart city with tokenized economies pegged against the development of novel IP in furtherance of innovation and the decrease in the cost of energy. We aim to prudently transition off less desirable methods of energy production and move towards the voluntary opt-in of cleaner, more abundant, and substantially less costly means of energy production and distribution. This requires ongoing innovation, which should be encouraged and financed via private funding.
CWF’s Commitments Towards Responsible Stewardship Include the following:
To stimulate marine biodiversity, mitigate mammalian extinction events, privatize, preserve and gently explore the unexplored wonders of the Amazon. We would happily participate in a global tokenization project, utilizing Web3ID and digital assets, so that the global population could participate in protecting these resources while receiving royalties via utility NFTs (representing their ownership stake), the mechanism whereby they receive their ROI on a public permissionless blockchain. Such preservation and innovations due to the gentle exploration of the Rain Forest alone would yield untold capital opportunities that would need to be deemed suitable through a representative democratized model of governance. A portion of the proceeds ought to be allocated to the expansion of the protected territory, stimulation of preservation of marine biology and mammalian wildlife, with a strict constitutional limitation on territorial expansion once protected territory impedes on local communities with lawful rights to the territory.
We are committed to promoting social responsibility through our programs and services and supporting our local communities. We will achieve this by promoting diversity and inclusion, supporting community development initiatives, and providing educational programs on sustainability.
As discussed above, we are committed to exploring ways to use emergent technologies to promote responsible stewardship of the planet, to mediate the excesses of human-driven errors that may lead to the corruption of systems that govern our quality of life and serve as the foundational substrate of our culture and perception of the world. We will achieve this by investing in research and development, collaborating with other stakeholders, and promoting innovative solutions.
We are committed to being transparent about those products and services we design, deploy, and maintain in furtherance of our mission. We will achieve this by reporting regularly on the efficacy of our emergent-tech driven sustainability projects whenever substantial and exhilarating government or private interest group tenders are awarded to us. We intend to bid on such tenders as we continue to grow. Outside of that, we are entitled to our personal privacy and the privacy of our valued stakeholders.
By taking these actions, we commit to assist in moving the needle towards a more sustainable future for humanity, the social cohesion of communities and peace through meaningful commerce both inter/intra-nation state, protect our little critters on land and in sea, and of course, restore, preserve, and make beautiful our shared planet. We recognize that sustainability is an ongoing journey, and we are committed to continuously improving our sustainability practices and performance as we see fit to benefit future generations. We pledge to do so not for the sake of unearned moral grandstanding, but because we believe it is the right thing to do.
In the wake of the 2008 global financial crises and the recent COVID Pandemic and the global response casing and even more atrocious gap is wealth disparity within and between nation states, anyone of competent and sound mind speaking Truthfully ought to admit we live within a legacy supranational framework and that the geopolitics and soft diplomacy of decades past have in large part failed in increasing social cohesion across disparate peoples around in the world. Unfortunately, despite the miracle of human flourishing that came outside the legacy framework simply through free markets spreading where command economies once stood, during these same time Billions of individuals around the world were able to lift themselves out of poverty and their children able to obtain a competitive level of education.
Today we have “Western Civilization,” with geographic territories including North America, Europe, Australia, & New Zealand, having undergone 3 generations of abundance and the United States the standing champion in report innovation and attracting director foreign investment. However, what you may not know is that over the last 50 or so years (some argue as far back as since the 1940s), the institutions that compose the Civilized portion of the West have in large part fallen, that is, vastly departed from their founding intent and many in fact now inverted in their purpose, stifling freedom instead of standing steadfast to preserve it.
The resulting outcome is that the US, the intellectual and human capital magnet of the world, is undergoing a transition that is very harsh and whose suffering will echo worldwide. The individual no longer has the freedoms their parents once enjoyed, either explicitly or implicitly, the people live in fear or exhibit group think and engage in such ugliness as “call out” culture, the barrier to entry regarding entrepreneurship grows more challenging to overcome by the day, law fare and reputational destruction by proxy of Web2 Social media runs rampant, and the people’s understanding of the world is becoming narrower and more polarized due to the consolidation of all the Western Press into roughly 5 consortiums owned predominantly by 2, maybe 3 large asset management firms.
In short, the people are divided and suspicious of one another and can’t afford the luxuries of their childhood nor escape the debt from their education. To be clear… the sensible highly industrious Americans, virtuous and charitable in deeds and compassionate in heart, are looking for an opt out mechanism without giving up on the sanctity of their native homeland. Each are looking in their own way for a viable way forward whereby he or she can pursue true self-actualization and gain earned sovereignty without the undue burdens levied against them in the home they hope perhaps one day their success and can one day bring some relief to.
You have all been given 2 blessings today.
1 – You have been born in the age of the rapid proliferation of emergent technologies. Our main interest at Citizen Warrior Foundations is in the decentralization of certain presently institutionalized, opaque, and highly corrupted systems, whose actions have and continue to lead to the meaningless suffering of the many. To put it another way, to target the most industrious to be made most vulnerable and dependent so that they will lose their earned sovereign and kneel to the dictates of the mob.
2 – You have been born in an age of international struggle and yet have been given a sword unlike that humanity since the discovery of fire and the printing press… you have been given the opportunity to sharper your sword, learn to wield it, learn to march fearlessly into the battle that is daily life. You ought to hone these skills with locked arms along with those who share your first principles, those principles extracted from intuition, those that lay deep in your heart. You will have to learn to articulate them, and once articulated, you will come to know might and so be given a great power that you must treat with the greatest of care and maintain it sharp and keep it in its sheath. Furthermore, remain vigilant to protect the most vulnerable while fulfilling you’re the individual purpose that of the collective with which you decide to gain membership of the collective and your individual purpose insofar the two may differ (and they ought, but not be antithetical to the other).
As Ambassadors of CWF, you will learn, embody, then teach these principles to those seeking purpose. One such example, and this will be the only explained, is the plurality of intent and to act meaningfully is in the fulfillment of the 5 concentric circles…. The self, the family, the community, the nation, and the world over successive generations. If such criteria are met, and the purpose, the aim, the target is True, Good, and Beautiful once the systems are in place and desired outcomes demonstrated… you have been reborn a Citizen Warrior who have done what others would not and so to become what others cannot.
You will be strong. You will be a force of nature. You will be kind, humble, and you will be charitable.
You will be the messenger to bring peace through strength, and strength tempered by compassion.
Most importantly, you will become a beacon of light in your community, your nation, and the collective brightness will shine a light unto the darkest areas of the world and through your steadfast and unwavering attention to your good deeds your mere existence will have those who lurk in the dark crawl back under the rocks to which they belong.
Thus, it is in this focus, to mitigate meaningless suffering through our exempt purposes, that we have established the Ambassadorship Program. CWF’s Global Ambassadorship Program seeks to assigning a representative for each OFAC-permitted nation state to answer to a regional representative, who in turn reports to CWF Management who act on behalf of the board to the betterment of all CWF stakeholders.
Corruently, Norther America is plentiful in its access to resources yet is restricted n its ability to innovate given increased regulation, high taxation, and labor law (differing sometimes dramatically by state). In the Middle East, for example, there is a hunger for cooperation with US firms as both they have access know to those who best understand the game of capital deployment and the accrual of wealth via the purchase or building of equity.
North Americans, conversely, are looking to overcome these various and at times prohibitive barriers to entry looking for intellectual capital and those with a more scarcity mindset, who understand hardship and are willing to work as if their life depending on it as, in some cases, it most certainly does. It is in this exchange where those living throughout areas less developed can collaborate with more developed areas in affair and just way that yields maximal prosperity to each party.
Today, there is an open-minded brought on both by the passage of time and by necessity to find solutions abroad while solutions at home appear to slip away at an increasingly alarming rate. Thus… we are at a unique moment in history where we may as well as that we need each other equally to remain a free people, a good people, and flourish despite the circumstances of our localized environments.
Things are changing rapidly, no alliances are forming, and new adversaries are publicly stating their intentions and are so effective in their actions that jump starting this cross-cultural program is both wise and necessary if we in the most prosperous nation in the world and those in nations who aspire to greatness have the ability and structure to come together, work together, cast aside petty differences, and embrace unifying first principals and their good deeds echo though their local communities thus making the so called “global souths and the nation states therein more formidable and less likely to be predated upon by the malicious acts of the few who effectively own the system and have the ability to end it to their will.
Through digital marketing and growth hacking so and develop dopaminergic gamified educational materials to attract all walks of life to these miracles of innovation and instruments of freedom, engage in the most effective on/offline community organization (organized around cherished first principals), and to do so fueled and guided by the intellectual, spiritual, and financial capital of disparate nations around the world.
As such, such institutions will preserve the good deeds of the communities who have built them and their good deeds echoes across their position in time and space no matter their station in life and persevere across successive generations and perhaps 10s of generations following sound balanced succession, so to ensure all our children and the future generations of our species live in an increasingly free and tolerant world, without sacrificing perhaps the 4th most important human virtue, one of the most importance virtues, the ability of exercise discernment and readily differentiate that which is bad from good, ugly from beautiful, false from true.
Good luck, young ones. The journey ahead will be enormously challenging. You will suffer meaningfully, being pushed to your limits, and from that suffering learn how to lean into it with a smile and gratitude and make that which others fear most your guide towards self-mastery… shedding your deadwood and leaving behind the fear of the unknown and anxiety of tragedy and seemingly insurmountable difficult in its wake.
You will struggle so that you will grow stronger. You may also ring the bell and leave anytime you wish. We offer you the chance of a lifetime to become that what you are able imbued with meaningful purpose and the wisdom of antiquity. Our gift to you is to be given the opportunity to one day lead your life by choice and not be subject to the ever-shifting whims of chance. We give you the opportunity to prove yourselves worthy of leadership and to pursue meaningful purpose in a way other institutions simply are unable or unwilling. You will come out of this program forged by the fires of your voluntary embrace of meaningful struggle and become the leader the people need.
It is only then you will be afforded the honor of becoming an Ambassador of Citizen Warrior Foundation. If this is your wish, you will select the top 3 volunteer roles you believe you will excel in the greatest and advise you would like to enter this track… which will play out in parallel to the efforts of your cohorts while not separating you from them. For they are to be your brothers and sisters in battle and your role(s) is to be your trial, your rite of passage, to see if you are capable of exhibiting greatness. Few are and so we suggest that you choose wisely.
We believe so called “Work-Life” balance is a kind of subversive false dialectic. It is in our philosophical worldview is that there is no personal life and professional life per se. Rather, there is but 1 life, and that life ought to balance the 4 pillars (ref: CW Handbook) and be either one in the pursuit of the virtues, the truth, and the preservation of that which is beautiful Or be a life best described by the ongoing voluntary assumption of meaningless suffering. Our commitment is to foster the former mode of being.
Today, many find themselves ‘time-poor,’ constantly rushing from one perceived obligation to the next, always 1 step behind finding themselves unable to grapple with sudden change or meet reasonable deadlines. This is not due to a shortage of hours but rather the way with which those hours are spent. The OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation & Development) considers a 50hr work week to be ‘very long hours’. To that we ask, “To whom?” Certainly, for a startup entrepreneur who has put his or her life’s savings into something meaningful they wish to develop & deploy, a 50hr work week is the floor threshold any VC would deem acceptable by its executive team relative to time spent in furtherance of the organization’s mission(s).
The # of hours for non-entrepreneurs and staff, those supervised be D&O’s, is determined by state employment law. Thus, our FT volunteers are capped at that max # of hours minus 5. This, however, in no way points to anything meaningful relative to how the achievement of work-life balance ought to be perceived. The volume of hours is contingent on who is working those hours and to what cause those hours are being allocation i.e. is it to provide emergency disaster relief?
The meaningful discussion around ‘work-life balance’ is if time is being properly utilized to master the domain of obligation. Such duty of obligation only occurs (outside of the most empty, purely materialistic pursuits) when time utilization is in the pursuit of a deep & enduring purpose. Thus, we can all lead a good life regardless of volume of hours “worked” once we have discovered a cause with which we find the most purpose.
As such, we commit to work-life balance in the following way:
USAID – An Introduction
Since 1961, The U.S. Agency for International Development has engaged in two primary types of activities: funding foreign disaster relief and economic development abroad.
For example, South Korea was rebuilt (after the Korean War) using US taxpayer funds allocated to and tendered by USAID, to mostly US/S. Korea-based bidders who thereafter subcontracted out in South Korea. This effort resulted in South Korea become a thriving marketplace with close ties to the US (both culturally and diplomatically), which was a huge win for both countries.
*More on the rebuilding of S. Korea (very pertinent) in upcoming announcements)
USAID – The Problem
Over time, USAID adopt the 1% of total US GDP standard to be allocated to these two groups of activities while USAID leadership has become increasingly demoralized regarding their efforts specifically in the following three (3) areas:
1. The specific bidders of the tenders (tenders are a public request for bid from eligible suppliers) have become “like vultures.” That this NGOs’ efforts often prove relatively counter-productive, at times engage in activities that while legal are blatantly immoral, and that in pursuance of i.e., subcontracting, substantial portions of the awarded funds disappear are no longer accounted for and the quality standards of the goods distributed, and services rendered fall below that which would otherwise be deemed as acceptable if deployed in the i.e., US private sector.
2. Regarding economic development, the fund allocation is intended to serve as an initial stimulus which would catalyze productive economic development such as the building of sound infrastructure and smart city centers. These activities predominantly apply to emerging markets as well as post war-torn areas. The idea behind sending specific goods and funding specific services to be rendered versus submitting a stream of unspecified loans, is to promote TRUE country stabilization while not robbing the country and its citizenry of its sovereignty and prospects. Other times, these funds help provide stabilization as well as strongly encourage the adoption of democratic processes and free markets, international trade at times set up in the form of bi/multilateral agreement with the US, and for the authorities of the recipient countries to ensure that a baseline level of fundamental human rights will be if not already codified into law.
a. These well-intentioned temporary programs all too often become permanent programs resulting in the recipient nation becoming dependent upon external funding, large-scale corruption with authorities, contractors/subcontractors, and the absolute dissemination of whatever preexisting or budding private sector had resulted from the initial improvements in infrastructure, governance, and at times local financial low interest loans. This is an unintentional outcome of our intention to do good and is the reality we knowingly continue to participate in as until recently a viable and attractive solution has not been available.
3. Shocking Fact: When considering both relief groups in the aggregate, roughly $0.25% per dollar sent is received by the intended recipient in the form of goods and services
a. As such, if we assume an NGO-friendly markup of 15% and stick to round numbers:
• This means that $0.40 of each dollar is received by the intended recipient in the form of goods and services, be it at the level of the institution, governmental body, or specific group intended to receive relief.
• Furthermore, the “leakage” of funds in our experience occurs predominately on the recipient end… meaning local corruption is what is preventing optimal outcomes of USAID programs, wasting both US-tax payer dollars while allowing for corruption to replace the alleviation of meaningless suffering. This is not an acceptable state of affairs.
USAID – The Solution via Emergent Tech
The United States was once widely recognized as by far the most generous country in the world. This legacy is something to be proud of. Furthermore, it is Citizen Warrior Foundation’s position that US citizens have been led astray by fallen institutions towards nihilism and collective guilt and as such that they have forgotten or refuse to acknowledge the Good with which the United States has contributed to the world, however imperfectly. We seek to remedy this situation by engaging the public in the good we are doing and demonstrating that there remains select authoritative bodies who have remained high-integrity and who are eager to work with the people in furtherance of human flourishing.
Know that CWF was initially conceived and designed so we could achieve the following:
For US-tax-payer funds sent oversees to merge with the new features and capability of emergent tech to accomplish minimize the leakage of funds; to mitigate meaningless suffering; to strengthen our relationships abroad; and to engage the American people in the charity that without their ongoing GOOD WORK would not be possible.
We kindly ask of you the following –
If you are a 501(c)(4) who seeks nonpartisan improvements via cooperation with the US government to bolster our national security, increase transparent government cooperation with the private sector (US-based organizations), and desire to be a part of CWF’s pilot OUTCOME-driven program … then navigate to our Partnership or Donor Network Page today. It is by coming together in good faith and mutual sacrifice alone that we can fundamentally improve our world.
If we continue to deliver consistent gains, attracting formidable, mission-driven groups with whom we share first principles and embrace a common values-based ethos, then with your support we can tackle the very core of corruption. Further, we can meaningfully address the root cause of meaningless suffering while ensuring the most cost-effective relief programs are in place with the alongside witnessing and engaging in the sublime satisfaction one has when they see firsthand precisely how their ongoing dedication to being a productive citizen and living lawfully results in alleviating the meaningless suffering of others.
What’s more… this is only the beginning.
With eagerness, unwavering devotion, and sincere gratitude to all who continue to support us…
Leader, Citizen Warrior Foundation
I do hereby agree, consent to and grant to the Producer hereunder all rights related to the recording and broadcast or other distribution of reproduction(s) of my voice, photograph, likeness and performance as part of my participation as a guest on the audiovisual program entitled The CWF Podcast (the “Program”). I hereby acknowledge and agree:
By typing my full name above and submitting this form, I acknowledge that I have read and understand the contents of this release and am executing same of my own free will.
CWF is a 501(c)(3) (pending) private foundation (nonprofit) purposed to engage in a robust scope of exempt activities, predominately surrounding providing education, driving community organization / relationship building, and initiating the R&D of goods and services related to Web3 emergent technology. The purpose of which is to educate everyday people on the economic, cultural, and technological realities that lie ahead. More importantly, we are to illustrate and lead by example how private often overly opaque foundations OUGHT to operate when interacting within the public sphere… to add value to the local community versus draining it of its limited resources.
We perceive true productive output in our markets-based system as the proliferation of specific types of innovation that accrues material wealth unto the innovator (thus, gaining earned sovereignty) while concurrently, by virtue of its deployment, may alleviate the meaningless suffering of others. In short, Web3 can in short time provide for secure, efficient, lawful gatekeeper-free rails for the transference of financial, intellectual, and human capital. Such rails unconstrained by a centralized authority who, for example, didn’t like that Tweet you made half-asleep back in ’04.
In effect, with the proper education, a shared foundational value schema, and good faith efforts made in the spirt of cooperation, these Web3 tools have the potential to redistribute centralized power back to the people. This is how we will preserve life, liberty, and the pursuit of purpose through value-added unimpeded responsible commerce.
If designed and deployed properly, these tools will transform our world into a more just and beautiful place where the likelihood of transactional default approaches zero. Further, cross-border online communities will proliferate and in part serve as a mitigating force against inter/intra nation state conflict via the collective embrace of cooperative commerce. In short, the future may be very bright… or very dark. It all depends on us educating the public NOW and for the public to be awake enough to accept and value that education.
Our first approved program, #DepositorsFirst, was the initial impetus behind our 501(c)(3) application several months ago. The Program Overview can be viewed here. We realize that’s a lot of linkage, but background information is necessary so that you are fully aware of our founding purpose and can make an informed decision once we call you to action (and we will).
And so it goes…
**Message To Those Financially Destroyed By The Malevolence Of The Celsius Network**
Do you, the $REKT, think you are going to get financial assistance to bridge you over until you can build another income-stream to cover your rent, your mortgage, feed your children, and cover your utility/transportation expenses? Spoiler: We did the research… and the answer, a resounding NO.
We are here to say in no uncertain terms that NOW is the time for active and strategic measures to be lead and executed by the most capable amongst us. Those of us now through no fault of our own in a state of financial limbo while our stored industriousness increasingly slips away from us under the spectacle that is the Celsius Chapter 11 proceedings.
This is to announce that CWF is recruiting the most talented Web3, Financial / DeFi, Legal, Digital marketing / SM Growth Hackers, On / Offline Community Organizers & Donor-Network Building Aficionados.
CWF NEEDS YOU to see through that we as a nascent, yet determined and formidable private foundation have full legal protection and the necessary guidance as we catapult this terribly unjust event outside of the niche Cryptosphere directly into the mainstream public consciousness. We will do this through a variety of methods such as guerrilla marketing, forming alliances with other nonprofits (if this is you, head here to get in touch), and through hosting culturally relevant events… assuming such meaningful spectacles can be afforded.
While CWF continues to make incremental headway, we felt compelled to become more dynamic in our actions until such time CWF receives its tax-exempt status. Without which, we simply don’t have the resources to pursue this time-sensitive matter both safely and lawfully. It takes capital to go through legal channels if the intent is to BOTH bring to light what is now only alleged criminal activity while concurrently mitigating the ST harm and the LT financial desperation of those victimized by the Celsius Network.
As Such, We Submit For Your Kind Consideration The Following Proposal:
CWF launches a distressed Community Co-housing Initiative to all those American citizens/residents who have been effectively $REKT by such lending/custodial platforms who are able and willing (or have no other option) to temporarily relocate to the NJ/NYC Metro area or to volunteer remotely (perhaps in multiple regions) in furtherance of the #DepositorsFirst Program.
Further, for other highly competent Web3 experts to join this Co-housing initiative and group their intellectual and human capital together to design, develop, and deploy Web3 goods and services that would have served to mitigate the likelihood of this tragic event from having occurred in the first place. With this course of action, responsible temporary financial assistance towards those whose resources were effectively taken from them will give this mostly distressed at risk group a reasonable window whereby along with their equally talented Web3 cohorts they can leverage their collective capabilities and deploy value-added solutions into the Web3 market sector. Thus, their combined success along with their cooperative contribution to the #DepositorsFirst Program will have been made possible due to minimal community support.
So… What’s In It For The Public?
From a strictly amoral ROI standpoint, there is no better investment than the Celsius $REKT Co-housing Incubator initiative. Existing municipal grants exist and we as a foundation and this program qualify perhaps more than all other bidders (unknown as such bids/bidders don’t appear to have been made public… still investigating). For as little as $50k,10-20 Web 3 experts who currently are bordering on bankruptcy or worse, will be granted sufficient time and the proper conditions to re-EARN their financial sovereignty so that they may return home to safeguard their families and be productive members of their respective communities once again.
To put this in perspective, 1% of US GDP is given out in the form of grants/bids around the world towards foreign disaster relief and economic development through various USAID programs. Wouldn’t it be just if 0.000022% (’21 USGDP, $50k Co-housing Relief Grant) of such funds were allocated towards domestic S/LT relief of financially distressed high productive US Citizens/Residents in their time of need?
What’s the ROI? The return would be dynamic and include their charitable goodwill, their approved value-added goods and services within the Web3 marketplace, and of course, their future taxable income. It should go without saying that their tax dollars going to the state and federal government would surpass by orders of magnitude that initial minimal cost it took to enable them to do what they do best. To be clear: THEY GIVE TO, NOT TAKE FROM, their communities. We hope we made our point as to which type of people are now at risk. In short, community assets… individuals with which you ought feel compelled to support the receipt of temporary productive financial relief.
But it should go without saying that we do not ACT based on amoral ROI alone. This is simply to say no other bidding foundation or recipient group at this moment is more deserving of this grant than CWF’s Co-housing Incubator Program & $REKT experts willing to put in the work.
If we are rejected it will not be on the merits and we will deal with that rejection in proper measure.
Further, if such rejection were to occur, we will ensure you are given a heavy dose of adult education as to the realities of victims of domestic financial injustice when our own community assets/taxpayers seek reasonable and pragmatic relief. Best to know that which is True now lest Truth bend you to its will when your cards are down.
What Are Our Next Steps?
It is time we began to once again care for our neighbors, those we have been taught are different in kind and ought be “othered,” and for us no matter our ideological persuasion to take collective local action, however small, to conduct good deeds. It is in this regard CWF intends to lead by example, illustrating how private foundations, which are design more opaque than charities and for good reason, OUGHT act when interacting within the public sphere.
It is our hope that this humble proposal is well received, that we receive these Harm Reports in short and that we can then petition our local community, get those signatures, and work our way up the food chain to make this proposal a reality before it is too late.
