Anton Galenovich , co-founder and product designer of DAO IPCI joined the 5th Seoul Climate-Energy Conference, speaking on the advantages of blockchain solutions for green finance and climate preservation.

"For many cases blockchain is not needed at all, for some it is indispensable and should be public, programmable and“trustless”. Blockchain by its core properties is the most suitable technology for carbon pricing initiatives and their integration", he pointed out in his keynote speech. 

"Transfer of carbon and other environmental markets to the new public blockchain paradigm cannot occur overnight. It is high-time to start building portals from existing systems, disintegrated, often overcentralized, non-transparent, in some cases susceptible to pressure, corruption and falsifications, to new universes, to leap to radically new climate policy ambitions", he concluded.

Mr Galenovich offset his carbon footprint for Seoul travel using the recently-designed CO2 calculator. Carbon offsets have been verified, issued and burnt in DAO IPCI blockchain DApp (needs MetaMask extension to work). The calculator will soon be available to all the participants of COP24 in Katowice, Poland.
