Yesterday, some netizens sifted out a screenshot of an App in the Philippines on Weibo. The pages and functions are very similar to Alipay Ant Forest. The netizen commented that it is a pixel-level plagiarism. In response, Alipay responded that:This is an environmentally friendly application launched by the "Philippines version of Alipay". It is not plagiarism, misunderstanding, and everyone is a brother.
It is understood that the mobile phone software for launching this foreign version of Ant Forest is called GCash. It is not only the largest mobile payment software in the Philippines, but also the Philippine version of Alipay. It is a brother relationship with the domestic version of Alipay. In the future, like Chinese users,Filipinos can also accumulate green energy through walking, electronic payment, etc..
In fact, the Philippines is also facing serious forest degradation problems. The data shows that the Philippines is losing forest cover at a rate of 47,000 hectares per year. Local forest coverage has fallen to around 20% in the last 70%.
"Greening the Earth, Alipay is our role model, China is our role model" Anthony Thomas, a GCash CEO who has visited Ant Forest, said he hopes to learn from Alipay Ant Forest, lower the threshold for Filipinos to participate in environmental protection, and arouse people's enthusiasm for environmental protection.
The latest data shows that Alipay Ant Forest has been launched for nearly three years, and 500 million people have planted 100 million real trees through it, planting a total area of nearly 1.4 million mu.
