Blockchain Show Episode 98

Introducing Veridium

Veridium is a collaborative initiative to create a regenerative economy that sustains our planet’s natural resources and reduces carbon emissions.

Seems like companies and consumers are beginning to understand the value of the earth’s finite resources.  This includes clean air, forests, arable land, clean water and the communities that rely on them.

Natural Capital Assets

Natural Capital is an emerging asset class that constitutes a broad range of environmental assets, usually in the form of financial instruments called “environmental mitigation credits”.

The most mature sector of this environmental asset class is the carbon emissions credit market. Similarly other sectors include water assets, in the form of water rights and water credits. Also biodiversity credits and conservation landbank easements. Consequently, the estimated value of the environmental credits markets worldwide exceeds $200 billion USD.

Veridium is creating a tokenized marketplace for natural capital (environmental) assets, beginning with carbon credit assets. By tokenizing carbon credits into fungible assets that have liquidity on an enterprise grade platform, Veridium will bridge multiple liquidity pools: corporate traders & end-users, traditional commodities trading markets and market makers, and also the cryptocurrency community.
