Recently Chia Network announced their new CAT standard, the token standard comparable to ERC20 for the Chia Blockchain, and the initial tokens launching were SpaceBucks and Marmot Coin. SpaceBucks is easy to get, you go to their website and use their faucet and they will send you a bunch. The real interesting one is Marmot Coin. There is no MRMT faucet, in order to get one you need to provide Proof of Marmot to the Marmot High Council or their High Counsel, Preston Byrne.
As noted in my piece here, there are three main ways you can provide Proof of Marmot. You can have a live marmot, you can donate a Marmot (or lesser) toy to a children’s charity, or you can donate $100 to the Marmot Recovery Foundation at marmots.org.
I chose the latter, and I think you (yes you, the person reading this) should also go there and donate to one of the Children’s charities or marmots.org and show them that the Chia Community means business about the public good. I want to see a bunch of people making donations and getting their MRMT coins from Preston, both because both options are genuinely good things to do and because I want Mr Byrne to realize how big the Chia community is and how many people are willing to help out the cause dear to his heart.
So make your donation, and tweet the proof at Mr Byrne or find him on Keybase and show him your Proof of Marmot. You can also tweet at me or at The Chia Plot twitter account and I will boost it the message. Let’s help those marmots!
Please, do not harass live marmots. They are noble creatures and are not individually part of this. They are represented by the Marmot High Council and all inquiries should be directed there. Leave the marmots alone.
