Introduction to BeeDAO

Overview


BeeDAO is an OlympusDAO fork based on the Fantom Network. Similarly as OHM token, the $BEE token will serve as a reserve currency backed by assets owned by a decentralized treasury.

BeeDAO will also take actions off-chain with its SaveTheBees Program that will help one of the key species on earth, often disregarded despite being very endangered by human activity. Our main purpose is to build a strong community and build trust towards our team.

 

Why bees?


Honey bees are responsible for about 80% of all pollination worldwide. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day. Grains are primarily pollinated by the wind, but fruits, nuts and vegetables are pollinated by bees.
Seventy out of the top 100 human food crops β€” which supply about 90 percent of the world’s nutrition β€” are pollinated by bees.

Bees have changed very little over the last 100 millions years, since then they have become key to a healthy and thriving ecosystem. They benefit a wide variety of other species in a semi-symbiotic relationship, but modern use of pesticides threaten this incredibly important relationship.

Bees extinction would be a critical blow to the healthy continuation of the Earth ecosystem. According to A survey of Honey Bee Colony Losses in the US, the number of honey-producing colonies in the US dropped from close to 6 millions in 1947 to 2.4 millions in 2008, that is a 60% drop in 61 years.
