Blockchain at the service of the environment
In recent years, alarming reports on environmental issues have emerged one after another. All of these converge towards the same conclusion: we must at all costs Reducing Greenhouse gas emissions are capturing those already emitted into the atmosphere.
Among the various solutions offered, CarbonABLE stands out by demonstrating the use of blockchain for Green Initiatives Financing all in Offer rewards to users Having invested in the future of our planet. The project is therefore arming itself with Web 3.0 tools in order to provide solutions using decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Reducing carbon dioxide emissions alone is no longer sufficient to avoid climate change. That is why the platform has taken the decision to develop decarbonization projects based on the regeneration of nature, with the aim To extend green roofs. The latter form carbon sinks that allow greenhouse gases to be captured efficiently, thus To mitigate climate change.
To do this, CarbonABLE identifies the best reforestation, agroforestry or mangrove projects to have NFTs sold on its platform. Once funded, these projects will offer holders of non-fungible tokens Passive income in stable currenciesplus tokens CARBZThe platform governance symbol.

CarbonABLE addresses many of the flaws in the system
The first problem impeding the necessary environmental transition is the slowness and low level of investment by countries or large corporations. Even worse, some countries such as Brazil are deforestation on a large scale, which in turn destroys massive carbon sinks and Climate change exacerbated dramatically.
The second problem is Lack of transparency and efficiency in the voluntary carbon credit market. This financial mechanism, which makes it possible to buy or sell carbon credits, constitutes an incentive for financing environmental projects.
This market holds a lot of interest for companies that want to contribute to carbon neutrality, but today it is not doing well, especially because Carbon credits are not traceable.
Thus, this lack of transparency in the exchange of carbon credits plays a role Resentment of companies sometimes accused of ‘greenwashing’which can buy credits that do not correspond to reality (for example, the forest burned for a long time!)
The last problem is The lack of blockchain projects connected to the real world. The current rise in blockchain and cryptocurrency Attract more investors In the world, but many projects remain little connected with reality, even they are just guesswork. However, users are increasingly looking forward to Increasing the financing of projects that provide attractive returnsbut also Projects that will have a positive impact on the world.
This is why CarbonABLE proposes to provide a Investing within everyone’s reach through the blockchain. This technology is the answer to 3 problems raised above.

In the future, it is also possible that the project will switch to Ethereum when this juggernaut completes Go to Proof of Stake. The community is now being consulted to see which Blockchain CarbonABLE they can turn to.
