Blockchain for Good: Deforestation, “NFTrees”, Gainforest and The Celo Foundation
Today we’re joined by Simge Sandal co-founder of Gainforest, a decentralised fund, using artificial intelligence to measure and reward sustainable nature stewardship and Angelo Paolo Kalaw Lead for Social Impact from the Celo Foundation to talk about their partnership. ABOUT GAINFOREST OVERVIEW Founder David Dao first came up with the idea of GainForest during the UN Climate Summit COP23 when he won #Hack4Climate, a hackathon designed to accelerate innovative climate solutions. Gainforest is a decentralised fund using artificial intelligence to measure and reward sustainable nature stewardship through “NFTrees” in order to stop deforestation. ABOUT THE CELO FOUNDATION The Celo Foundation was founded in 2017 to support the growth and development of the decentralized, open source, mobile-first Celo platform to help build a carbon-negative financial system that creates the conditions of prosperity for all.
