#040 - Welcome to another episode of Quorum, where we believe that contributing to a DAO is the best way to find engaging and rewarding work in the new Web3 economy. 

In today’s show I spoke with Marcus Aurelius, Contributor at KlimaDAO — which is a DAO with a mission to help combat climate change.

On today’s show, we discussed:

  • The basics of climate change, carbon markets, and how KlimaDAO is helping build a better future
  • The current challenges with today’s antiquated solutions to climate change, and how blockchain solves them 
  • And, an inside look at the KlimaDAO culture, including the power of pseudonymity in creating an equal playing field for contributors

More about this episode:

KlimaDAO is an innovative solution using blockchain to make it easier for people who want to reduce the carbon in the environment (to combat climate change) with those on the ground floor who are making the change happen (like people who plant trees for example).

Marcus explained that traditionally, if you’d like to buy a carbon credit (to help offset your carbon emissions) you have to either go to a broker (who might not take you seriously unless you want to buy $100K worth of credits) or you go to a retailer (who can make it more affordable, but come with issues of transparency and trust).

KlimaDAO solves these issues by making it more accessible and transparent to buy carbon credits, and the results is that in only 2 years, they’ve already helped remove over 18 metric tons of carbon from the environment, which is 4% of the overall carbon credits available. That’s crazy!

This was a really exciting conversation. As someone who’s not totally woke to the nuances of climate change, I was so engaged with how KlimaDAO is tackling this problem and also the insane traction they’ve had with their technology.
