It’s no secret that blockchains use expansive amounts of energy to ensure the integrity and decentralization of their networks. While proof-of-work structures leave the biggest footprint, even more energy-efficient consensus mechanisms such as proof-of-stake contribute to emissions. The resulting problem is two-fold: Cryptocurrency weighs heavily on the planet, while also suffering from negative perceptions.
Both of these pain points can be addressed by embedding carbon footprinting and removal directly into the product or smart contracts, enabling exchanges, non-fungible token platforms, decentralized finance protocols, and asset managers to deliver carbon-neutral experiences.
Offset emissions from minting new NFTs and traversing bridges from sidechains to Ethereum Mainnet, alleviating the environmental concerns shared by creators, brands, and consumers alike.
Measure and offset the footprint of the underlying crypto in digital-asset trusts and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), while building climate-friendly trading and exchange experiences.
Build your ReFi project on top of Patch's infrastructure to seamlessly access the deepest marketplace of carbon projects.
Deliver an engaging, educational, and transparent climate-action experience with API-delivered project information and content.
Estimate Bitcoin and Ethereum emissions using our robust bottoms-up methodology to understand the impact of your network usage.
Easily purchase carbon offsets and removal from a diversified portfolio of projects. Or embed the latter directly into your product experience, smart contracts, and inter-chain bridges—for scalable impact.
