The mission of Black Box is to contribute to a better future globally by doing our small part. We plan on achieving this by being a long-term stake pool with a high level of reliability and availability. We sincerely believe Cardano will change the world, and we want to do our small part to contribute to this remarkable project. The primary goal of Black Box is to still be producing blocks on the Cardano blockchain decades later when the lives of millions of less fortunate people have changed significantly for the better. Charity: We have committed to donate 10% of all fees to Make-A-Wish Foundation. A charity organisation helping to creating life-changing wishes for critically ill children. Carbon Neutral: Black Box is carbon neutral. We have committed to offsetting 7 tonnes of CO2-e emissions through Biodiverse Reforestation Carbon Offsets in Australia. Black Box is dedicated to environmental sustainability on a global scale, and we are acutely aware of the carbon footprint our servers generate in the daily operation of the stake pool. We are proud of this continuing commitment to sustainability and contributing to a better future globally. Please see our blog post at: https://www.blackboxpool.io/post/black-box-is-now-carbon-neutral About: The name Black Box derives from the Flight Data Recorders installed on all airliners that are affectionately nicknamed Black Boxes – even though they are painted bright orange! Our name also pays homage to the Black Box algorithm trading systems within legacy financial markets. Community: Collectively we bring many lessons from the high-stakes international aviation domain and apply them to the Black Box project. We have also spent years in the digital marketing and brand awareness sector. Through this experience we have so far been able to add value to the Cardano community by providing tutorial videos, infographics, and promoting the Cardano project through a strong social media presence.
