KlimaDAO, Carbon Sourcing

Klimates, we surpassed our loftiest ambitions with our aKLIMA Fair Launch Auction on Copper. We’re now moving forwards at pace, and gearing up for the protocol’s launch in the coming weeks.

The critical next step for KlimaDAO is to ensure that the 220,000 aKLIMA, alKLIMA and KLIMA distributed via the LBP, Crucible Rewards and the IDO are backed at a 1:1 ratio by BCTs in the treasury. Furthermore, KlimaDAO requires sufficient BCT liquidity to be available in the market to enable ecosystem activity and growth right off the bat. To achieve these requirements, we expect around 1,600,000 tonnes of carbon to be brought on-chain in the form of BCTs in the near-term. For context, that’s the equivalent emissions of around 300,000 Westerners, or the emissions 3.8 million barrels of oil… or the emissions of 1.1 million transatlantic flights from New York to London.

Projects that will be onboarded into the ecosystem range from renewable energy projects lighting up rural regions of India, China, and Turkey, to forest protection projects ensuring the world’s most biodiverse hotspots remain safe from destruction.

Below, we outline some of the projects that we will see in the KlimaDAO ecosystem.

Rimba Raya Reserve Project

Bornean Orangutans are one of many endangered species that have refuge within the Rimba Raya Reserve

Pacajai REDD+ Project

Wind Power Project at Jaibhim

According to International Energy Agency data, just 4.23% of India’s total energy supply came from solar and wind in 2018, despite the countries vast solar and wind resource. This demonstrates the critical need to support the scale-up of low carbon technologies across the country.

Fujian Yong’an Improved Forest Management Project

Woodland accounts for 65.95% of the total area within the Fujian Yong’an Improved Forest Management Project.

Next Steps

For now, sit back, and enjoy the regenerative impact our protocol and collective efforts are already having, as we begin the process of internalising the positive impact from these projects into the KlimaDAO Treasury.
