How many of you have seen the Interactive Bird Feeder Live stream over on YouTube? For those who didn't here's the link. The concept is pretty simple, these birds need food and Mr. Dove is willing to feed them with help from the community. What he did was set up a few payment channels so that users can tip their desired cryptocurrency in support of the birds.
Currently, there are 4 currencies being accepted, we see Litecoin in the lower left, Nano in the upper left, Bitcoin in the upper right and Dogecoin towards the lower right. Next to the currencies are QR codes, which are synced to Mr. Dove's various wallets.
This live feed caught a lot of attention. It was reposted by several crypto blogs and more recently by Yahoo Finance. In the article, Yahoo broke down the concept of this live feed, stating that a $.50 donation of either currency would result in the birds getting more food.
They then went on to talk about which currencies were being utilized to feed these birds, here's what they had to say.
At the time of writing, 26 donations had been sent to the bitcoin address; four donations were sent to the Dogecoin address, and 21 were sent to the Litecoin address. But Nano was still the dominant currency, with 126 donations and counting.
As you can see Nano dominated in donations... I think we all know why, but here was Yahoo's reasoning
One reason for Nano’s dominance could be due to the fact that transactions on the Nano blockchain are cheaper than on the other cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, Nano-holders may also be less inclined to hodl.
Personally... I think they could have been a little more positive about why Nano was the obvious favorite, but this was exposure none-the-less. Do I think the price will see a major bump due to this news? No. But I do think Nano holders will continue to flood Mr. Dove's Livestream with Nano donations. This will hopefully bring more exposure to Nano, maybe even a more accurate headline, Anonymous YouTuber sets up bitcoin bird-feeder, just doesn't seem quite accurate enough for me.
