KlimaDAO Launch, Reflections on our Manifesto

The genesis

The climate change context

If the Greenland ice sheet were to completely melt and flow into the oceans, global sea levels would rise by 7 meters (23 feet) and the Earth would rotate more slowly, the length of the day would even become longer than it is today, by about two milliseconds. Credit: NASA

The power of the blockchain is unrivalled

  • DeFi can efficiently deliver a step change in the way we collectively pool our capital to deliver impact.
  • Smart contracts can disintermediate, facilitate and automate, and enable novel reward systems.
  • DeFi technologies can enable coordination, collaboration and innovation, with transparency and accountability.
  • Open source software and composability can enable rapid scaling of this vision.
When viewed from space, humanity’s urban centers reflect nodes of crossing between cultures, ideas, capital, and goods. As we move away from centralized and often fragile financial centers of control, what opportunities arise for us?

Moving forward
