The climate crisis is perhaps the biggest thread humanity has ever faced.
Carbon markets play an important role in financing carbon removal solutions and to drive funding to planet-positive projects.
But we all know that merely offsetting one’s emissions is not enough. We need to drastically increase demand for carbon credits. Here’s where liquid ERC-20 carbon reference tokens come into play: Everyone can BUILD with on-chain carbon!
In our weekly twitter series BUILD with Carbon, we speak to the innovators, the builders and stakeholders connecting this new Web3 building block with climate action. Here’s what we will cover in the next four weeks.
Who should we invite?
Offsetting made easy — March 10th
