This is Rene, CEO of LuxTag.
LuxTag has given away bonus payments for memberships to the NEM Foundation for some of its employees (paid out from the official LuxTag NEM Wallet NB4JQQXBK37Q6VT4KJRY7ZKIPHB2OY7KLPDFBNNJ).
This has come about for a few reasons. We at LuxTag are big believers of the NEM blockchain. As you may well know, one of our co-founders, Jeff McDonald was also the co-founder of the foundation. We have also launched three product lines on the public chain including DeFeet, Chronoswiss and Poesy Liang, which will be further announced soon with at least three more projects to follow soon. The latter will go into full production still this year. We encourage our employees to know as much about NEM as possible, invest in XEM if they feel like it. And now they have a chance to be a part of the NEM Foundation if they choose to.
The average minimum salary in Malaysia is around USD 400-500 a month. We at LuxTag have implemented a minimum monthly wage at $725, but regardless, $50 is still a strain on some of our employees. Some of our employees expressed the interest in having a NEM Foundation membership but explained that the entry fee was too high. It was at that point we decided to offer a bonus to LuxTag employees. We have 23 full-time employees and 6 part-timers. We offered them a chance to be members of the foundation if they choose to. Of our employees, up to now, eleven took up this offer. They were explicitly told that sponsoring their membership was in no way related to how they would vote and they were all encouraged to do their own research and vote for who they thought is the best candidate.
We are proud that several of our employees have chosen to learn so much about NEM, be members of the NEM Foundation.
