COP27 | Web3Carbon Week #39
I have revamped the Kuoka.earth repository
+ 6 ReFi project updates
+ 3 web3-related panels/presentation at COP27 in Egypt
+ Some weekend reads
👩🌾 Regen.network (Ecological Assets) partners with ♻️ Return Protocol (Onchain Offsetting). Return Protocols plans to include Regen Network eco credits in its carbon pools.
🍧 KlimaDAO (Carbon Reserve Currency) launches Fiat-to-Retirement Payment Platform. It enables its users to offset tokenized carbon credits with Klimadao via a credit card. The feature removes the barrier for users of going the more complex route via crypto currencies.
🌲 Open Forest Protocol (MRV for Forestation) partners with 🕳️ Senken (Decentralized Carbon Credit Marketplace). Both team up to create the “Foundation of Truth for Carbon”. Forest projects operating with Senken will have access to the Open Forest Protocol tools. Using these tools, forest projects can ensure that every tree has a permanent record of forest data. When a carbon credit is purchased through the Senken platform, that credit will be accompanied by an immutable stamp of approval.
🚰 Flowcarbon (Two-way Carbon Bridge) launches Flow3rs, a collection of decentralized art for climate. The Flow3rs NFT collection includes 200 unique pieces, the auction will start on November 28, 2022. More info can be found on the Flow3rs Website
🐋 NewAtlantis (Protecting marine biodiversity). ReFi Podcast's hosts sit down with Courtney and Gordon, co-founders of New Atlantis DAO to discuss biodiversity and blue carbon.
COP27 hosted a few web3-related presentations and panels at the UN Climate Change Global Innovation Pavilion.
Presentation: Using Web3 to Build the Global Carbon Ledger by Alan Ransil from Filecoin Green. Slides are available here
Panel discussion: Using Web3 to Build the Global Carbon Ledger (starts at min 23:10) with Marc Johnson (Filecoin Green), David Dao (Gainforest) , Haley Moller (Thallo), Martin Wainstein (Openearth)
Panel: Session 7: Bringing the Balance Sheet of the Planet to the Public Ledger: Panelists (including Benoit Clément from Verra) discussed new open source digital tools for public and private finance.
New Kuoka Webapp
I have rebuilt the Kuoka.earth repository from scratch to remove some issues from the old version.
I also added some more data like the project’s most important team members.
Also, the project deep links from the newsletter to the project now finally work (i.e. 👩🌾 Regen.network)
Kuoka’s new design is unfinished. But hopefully, I will roll-out some improvements over the coming weeks. Please let me know if you encounter any issues.
