The number of projects at the intersection of climate and crypto is increasing, for a couple of reasons. First, crypto has a carbon emissions problem, and there’s growing interest in solving this problem. Second, crypto is a technology that solves problems in and around trust
Thanks for sharing this! I've been searching high and low for a project that has the hype of crypto and the impact of climate. I'd welcome any connections: @pollock on Twitter.
Great write-up. Thank you. Carbon.fyi is a great tool that I use regularly (thanks Offsetra).
Have you seen KlimaDAO? They are leveraging the liquidity of DeFi to hoard offsets, force the price of them up (to disincentivise greenwashing and incentivise actually reducing emissions). The KLIMA token will be backed by 1 tonne of CO2 reduce or abated, validated by a Verra carbon tonne... The KLIMA token will essentially be the world's first carbon backed currency...
