All funds raised through this campaign will be used to increase the Zuck Bucks marketing budget. Nearly $2,000 of the dev's own funds have been spent on this project to date for community-growth, and we need YOUR HELP to increase the reach of our protest. The donations from this campaign will be used to hire a social media marketing agency and expose our project to thousands of people around the world.
Zuck Bucks is a community-run protest of Facebook’s upcoming Libra project. The community of Zuck Bucks believes that cryptocurrencies should be made by the people for the people, and shouldn’t be beholden to private interests. The very structure of Facebook’s coin will undermine this basic principle of the cryptocurrency community, and we believe that those who undermine the basic freedoms that have come from the rise of cryptocurrencies should be stood up to and protested.
Facebook has shown their inability to properly manage their own platform, and we do not trust them to handle vital information relating to finances. We believe that their currency will have many of the same problems that their platform has had, and are concerned that their history of mishandling information will continue with the creation of Libra. Our goal is to educate the people as to what Facebook has done in the past in order to protect our society from what may happen if Libra successfully launches.
Here are just a few instances of egregiously mishandled situations that Facebook has played a part of throughout their history:
Failed to secure vital personal information on multiple occasions, including storing “hundreds of millions” of passwords in plaintext.
Failed to limit personal data exposure to malicious parties during attacks by malicious parties.
Refused to comply with government inquiries, and stonewalled investigators in order to protect their image.
Actively promoted censorship and limited freedom of speech on their platform.
Actively participated in advertising fraud on their platform in the form of “click” and “like” fraud.
Actively tracked millions of users who have not opted-in to their services without their consent, thereby infringing on privacy rights.
Played a role in the rise of suicidal behavior specifically linked to social media platforms.
Zuck Bucks needs your help to continue to spread awareness as to the atrocities that Facebook has committed. Any funds donated to our cause will be used to fund marketing for our project. Support digital rights! Support Zuck Bucks!
